It personally cracks me up because that's become one of my sayings around the house. And I've been politely asked to stop. I won't, but it's nice that they asked.
I'm finding it so important, as a woman, to get out of the house by myself. Whether it be for a stroll around Target, night out with good friends or, if I can swing it, a full weekend away. As an entrepreneur and as a mom you find yourself refreshed and looking at the world differently if you can just step out of the house and every day rut. Sometimes this is the time my best ideas come to me (yes, even while wondering Target - I swear). When things come to mind I generate a list of things to do on my phone's calendar - helps me to focus when I return.

Just looking at these pictures again makes me all zen-like.
I'm human, I know you love your kids and family so much, but this is YOU you are investing in - and your sanity is so worth it! Even if you don't do a full weekend, rip the band aid off slowly, try a night out first. I always think about the fun my kids have when I'm not around and how they get to experience Daddy time or fun time with their Grandparents.
What do you do to take care of YOU?
