Ok I’m literally counting down the days till school is back on. One part of me can’t wait for the routine to kick in, another part of me is totally paniciking. For me the school holiday is the chance to get on top of anything that slowly slipped past my radar.
Today I sat down with my son and we set out a schedule for the week. We put his activities first, as he is now 10 years old I feel the need to commit to him some time for his social activities that prepare him for this wicked world.
By the time i’d done my son’s time, my daughters time, work and housework there was little time for me. Now learning from past mistakes this term i’ve made a commitment to give a little more to me. A mom who makes a little time for herself has to be better than a mom who gives everything, and as a result hasn’t seen a hair or beauty salon in almost a decade.
‘It has to be done’, I told myself whilst I lay on a salon bed getting a facial. I mean being successful is a life lesson for children in itself isn’t it?
How I secretly wonder how other mothers manage to look fabulous with their hair done, make-up on and ironed clothes lol. In order to achieve this level of success I have made some serious changes, and the most important one was time for myself.
