Mommy needs a break...



So today I'm on my, I need a break kick. Moms need breaks, we need girls night out, we need pampering, and we need time and stuff just for US!
I think all to often once we become a mom, we forget who we are. I forgot what I like to do, I know what the kids like to do, I know what hubby likes to do, but what is it I like to do? I don't know anymore. I'm wife and mom, I am no longer Melissa. So when is it I get to become me again? I always buy stuff for the kids, but when I want to buy something for me, I feel guilty, why? I deserve to have stuff right. I deserve to get products, clothes, or what ever it is I want right? The problem is, when I go out to buy it, because I have set my mind to it, I can't justify the purchase. I do this all the time. I want a new purse, really badly, but I already have one and nothing is wrong w/ it, so now I can't justify the purchase and I don't end up getting it. I wanted new clothes, what did I get, work clothes, not only because that is what I needed, but why do I need other clothes, right? Wrong, I need to stop for just a minute, and take some time and money for me. I work for it, I get my bum up at 5:00am every morning, get ready for work and go. I come home, cook dinner, clean the house, I usually pick a chore a day, take a shower and then it's time for bed. Where is there time in the day for me? I don't know, but I am going to find it! Today I'm making a chore list for my daughter. She helps around the house a lot, but she's about to help a little more. I am saving money to go to Ohio to have a girls weekend w/ my friend Heather and I'm not taking any kids! I just need some ME time, and some ME stuff!

  1. Go for it. You do have to do for you. I have the same idea about getting stuff for me. I ask do I need it, instead of do I want it. I don't have kids, so my quandary is nothing like yours.

    Just Do It. (I know Nike has the copyright, but I was saying it before they did.)

  7. I think Heather's awesome! You girls will have so much fun!

    And I know exactly how you feel! Why do you think I go by the name "Sophia's Mom" instead of my name?

    Thanks for following my blog. I am now following you :)
