“you must learn to love yourself before you can love someone else”
It can be hard feeling special amongst the hard days of motherhood.
As moms we often tend to turn a blind eye on ourself and focus on taking care of others. While it IS what we are deigned to do, we often forget that we need to set some time aside to love ourselves as well. Sometimes all you need to reset and reenergize is just a little bit of time for yourself.
As the wife of an airline pilot, it can often be a one man army. While it is a rewarding career that comes with many perks and benefits that we love, it can also mean he’s gone for days on end.
When my hubby is gone on a pairing and single parenting comes into the picture hats off to you single mama’s) it is so easy to put myself on the back burner and get caught up in the daily grind.
How many of you swear you have an autopilot button that gets switched on?
After all, taking care of kids can be all consuming.
So when my husband is home, he makes sure to get the kids up and surprise me with coffee in bed and a little breakfast. Of course the girls love getting in on all the prep action.
He claims to love it as it gives him a special bonding time with the kids after being away, and who am I to complain right?
It is amazing what an hour to yourself can do for ones sanity. I feel renewed and refreshed ready to tackle the day.
I do find it hard letting go of what is going on behind the closed as I am one of those people that when it comes to my kids i like things being done my way. But it is sure worth it.
I also believe that to feel good you have to look good. It’s so hard to find the time to take care of yourself but I find even putting on something that makes you feel pretty can make such a big difference. This robe by Bellabumbum does just that!
They have so much cute maternity, nursing clothes, and PJ’s. It was hard to pick only one item. They also have a line of their own active wear.
I really wish I knew about Belabumbum when I was pregnant as I struggled to find the right clothes that looked cute and felt comfortable.
I love the bright colour, I feel like it freshens me up a little with all those bags under my eyes 😛 And I love the lace detail on the sleeves.

Remembering to love yourself and taking time for yourself doesn’t have to come in the form of sleeping in a pretty robe. It can be going out for a fitness class or a quick store run, booking a manicure or a massage, or catching up with friends sans your kids.
What do you do that makes you feel special?
