Pay attention to who you are with when you feel your best.
When was the last time you had a night off?
Stop me if you identify with any of the below:
1. You now associate alone time with locking yourself in the bathroom.
2. The last time you dressed up, it involved a tiara, a princess dress, and your 3-year-old.
3. Your friends leave messages, asking to see you but by the time you reply its 2 weeks after the date.
4. You can’t remember the last time you sat down to eat.
5. Your children’s social calendars are busier than yours.
6. Everything you know about your friend’s lives you learnt on social media.
7. The most played song on your iPhone is either by Elsa or Anna.
8. You think the cool celebrities are the ones who make a cameo on Sesame Street.
We wouldn’t trade our kids for anything or anyone — but every once in a while we all need a night off from baby food, baths, and bedtime stories. Unfortunately mum guilt can often get the best of us or it just seems like too much effort to coordinate. Well you thought wrong.
So this is your call to arms. I am hosting a little mini mums night off with a few of my nearest and dearest and I think you should do the same.
It doesn’t have to cost a thing (except maybe a few bottles of wine and a wheel of brie that will likely be consumed), you don’t even have to get dressed up if you don’t want to (UGG boots are totally allowed – depending on your location of course).
I’m calling on you – my tribe of Member Mama’s, to send a group message to 4 or 5 of your favourite mum friends and lock in a date for sometime soon where you can all be baby and husband free.
The goal here is to do nothing except for yourselves.
Laugh a whole bunch. And relax.
If you decide to host and be the coordinator of your girl squad, hit reply and let me know what you are up to. Just coz I want to know.
Cheers to that!
