Time for Mom: Enjoy Your Peeps!

I’m off for a weekend with my family. Being away from home can be a lot of work. I have a lot of the same responsibilities in terms of childcare and family management, but without the comforts of home.

But, the other side of the coin is that I have fewer household duties because I’m on someone else’s turf. So, that frees me up simply to cuddle the baby, read the littles a story, or play a game with the big boys.

Whether you’re home or abroad this weekend, I encourage you to put aside the urgent, and spend a little extra time on the important, your family. Have a great weekend!

  1. I needed to read this message this morning. My boys are off at a soccer tournament, so it is just my daughter and me. And I need to soak up every minute of it, not worrying about what household chore I could be working on.

  2. That is one reason I love going on vacation. There is usually no other responsibilities or things to focus on except each other. I treasure those times.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
