  1. It’s so important not to completely lose yourself in the responsibilities of parenting and caregiving. Admittedly it is hard some days. This are great self care tips.

  2. These are excellent suggestions for helping moms remember themselves as individuals instead of just mothers. The date night one is big for us – my husband and I really need to be more intentional about scheduling time for the two of us!

      Its so important right! We look forward to it so much. It’s also the build up to it that counts. Not only do we enjoy thr actual date night but also love the idea of hanging out and trying some place new. Just having something to look forward to can make us feel better.

  3. LAWD does this mama need some new clothes! Especially after I watched Marie Kondo’s Tidying Up series – I gave away like all of my summer stuff. I was like, YOU DON’T SPARK JOY, and now I’m all like I DON’T HAVE ANYTHING TO WEAR! But really, feeling confident in your clothes is definitely SO important. My kids also have hundreds of dollars of clothes in their closet, and I can’t remember the last time I had a good shopping spree.

      I hear that! For the longest time I didn’t see myself or wardrobe as a priority especially as the kids are continuously growing and needing more. I make sure to focus on them as well as myself now and I feel so much better for it!

  4. Having kids is great, but I definitely struggled with feeling like myself after motherhood. I love the idea of simply buying new clothes! Date nights and friend times have been a lifesaver! Thanks for sharing.
