This week the topic is: Making time for Mama - How do you find time to relax and treat yourself? 




I am with my toddler 99.9% of the time. So finding mama time can be hard, & limited. I love my daughter so much that I am okay with not getting a lot of mama time. The Lord has blessed me with her & my 2nd that will be here soon, so me time just seems less important.  

My mama time is very simple & usually very short. If I wake before Kenzie I will get right to my coffee & probably some blog & bible reading. Her nap time used to be mama time, but now that I am pregnant & always tired I use that for napping as well. But naps count as mama time right? Bed time for Kenzie is when I finally get to prop my feet up, catch up on some t.v./Netflix, & blog. Possibly some snacking, couponing, or even catching up on some cleaning. Funny how cleaning is part of mama time. Crazy how life works, but man on man do I love my life as a mama! 

How do you spend your mama time? & when do you find it?

Next week the topic is: Planning for the Future - Do you have a living will, guardianship and college saving funds in place. What's necessary and how do you make sure your child is prepared for the future?

  9. I can relate so much that mama time has turned into cleaning time but in some ways I don't even mind it. As long as I can let my mind wander it can be at least somewhat relaxing.

  11. True! It can be hard cleaning with a toddler, so when bed time rolls around cleaning can be somewhat exciting too! ha.
