Hey moms! Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and as a busy and dedicated parent, you deserve some “me time.” While one day per year to celebrate mom doesn’t even come close to what you’re worthy of, taking this day to give yourself a break is a gift you’ve earned.
You may have some presents coming your way, but what about a little pampering? A piece of jewelry or a bouquet of flowers are lovely gestures of gratitude, but you’re tired and could use some relaxation, right? While you won’t want to spend a lot for a little luxury, there are ways you can unwind without breaking the bank. This Mother’s Day, thank yourself for being such a great provider, role model, teacher, shoulder to cry on, and so much more. You do it all, so now it’s time to “do you.”
You may go to the nail salon for mani-pedis every now and then, but you can go in just for a tension-relieving foot massage. Most places don’t charge much for this service, and as little as 15 minutes can make a world of difference. Sit back, close your eyes, and let the masseuse tenderize your toes, heal your heels, and soothe your soles.
A Decadent Dessert
Perhaps you’re watching your weight or just don’t indulge much, but this Mother’s Day, dig into something sweet and sinful. Go out and grab a slice of the richest chocolate cake you can find. Maybe cheesecake is your thing, so slowly savor every forkful. If ice cream puts you in a great mood, go to the nearest parlor that serves up your favorite sundae or banana split. Oh…and don’t bring the kids, at least not this time!
Send the kids for a sleepover at grandma’s or convince your spouse or partner to keep the kids quiet on Sunday morning so you can sleep in ‘till whenever you finally decide to start the day. If you’re extra lucky, someone will come to your bedside with breakfast when you’re ready for a bite. You can certainly use the rest and the refreshments.
What would be your ideal Mother’s Day pampering activity? We’d love to share more ideas for the AMC moms following our blogs.
