How to Catch a Quick Mom Break
I’m a mom of four and that means time is short. I don’t always have time to catch a break as a mom. In fact, it’s quite hard. However, as a mom, I realize my sanity is at stake if I don’t some sort of break. Over the years, especially recently, I have perfected the mom break. Here’s how to catch a quick mom break.
#1. Wake up 15 minutes earlier than the kids.
I have found that my kids wake up around the same time every day. I started waking up just 15 minutes before them. I can get in the shower quick or just have time to breath before they wake up. It helps me set the tone for the rest of the day.
#2. Head to the bathroom.
Hey, if your kids are old enough, the bathroom is sometimes the only place in the house to catch a break. You don’t have to go to the bathroom, just spend some time catching your breath and preparing for the rest of the day.
#3. Take a quick nap.
I’m lucky that I have some kids in school and the other kids still nap. A quick power nap can do a lot for the soul and it’s a great way to catch a quick mom break. Napping is a favorite of mine.
#4. Eat your favorite snack.
Kids have favorite snacks, but so do moms! I like taking Café Breaks. This is an adult-inspired adult pudding cup that is delicious in every way. The Mocha Latte and the Caramel Latte are amazing and perfect to start your morning off or even to indulge in while waiting in the school pick up line. You’ll want to take way more mom breaks with this deliciousness in your life. Don’t miss out. You can buy these at Walmart in the pudding aisle.
