100 Ideas for a Mommy Break

Top 10 signs you need a Mom Break from
1. You forget your name.
2. You start to think the smell of spit-up is kind of comforting.
3. You not only talk to the baby, you ask him for wardrobe advice.
4. Your most exciting revelation of the week: The ABC song and Twinkle Twinkle are exactly the same.
5. You refer to your husband as “Daddy.” Even in bed. And not in a sexy way.
6. You water the dog and feed the plant.
7. You have actual conversations with friends about the baby’s toots.
8. You catch yourself wondering if maybe those leftover strained peas would be good in an omelet.
9. Your idea of a fun time? Using shampoo and conditioner.
10. You forget the baby’s name.

All mom’s need a break sometime! As a stay-at-home mom I get those “why do you need a break” look when I mention something about being tired, having a long day, or wanting a break. No, I do not work a 9-5 job. But that doesn’t mean I don’t work! As a stay-at-home mom, I work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I do not get pay checks, sick days, or vacation time. I am required to do a long list of duties that include: maid, cook, taxi driver, nurse, teacher, personal shopper, and laundry service. The estimated cost of a stay-at-home mom’s salary is over $100,000 A WEEK. I am very grateful that I have a wonderful man that works so I am able to be a stay-at-home mom. Sure, sometimes it is difficult, but there is nowhere else I would rather be. 

Have you ever had those moments when you want to have a conversation that doesn’t involve who went into time out, the color your newborn’s poop, or just a conversation with someone who can talk back? Moms need a break. Not the 10 minute shower you get a day, the weekly trip to the grocery store, or the nightly task of making dinner for the family. I know being a mom is stressful and it doesn’t matter if we are a stay-at-home mom or a working mom, we still need a break! Hand the babies off to dad or take the kids to the grandparents’ house and enjoy some time to yourself. This list really plays on the idea of "look good, feel good!"
