Take Care of Yourself, Mama!
While this year’s Mother’s Day is behind us, we think it is vital to put emphasis on the importance of taking care of the one who gives so much care to others… YOU, mama! Being a mom means many things. We are chefs, chaperones, housekeepers, personal shoppers, household accountants, librarians – you name it, we do it! Amidst all the practical things we do for our families, we are also encouragers, teachers, counselors, protectors, and above all, nurturers. We gently shepherd our kids from infancy to young adult years with the intent to usher them into a beautifully independent, successful and thriving life.
You probably hear, “How do you do it?” pretty often, referring to the constant work involved in being a mom. So, how do mamas keep up with all of these tasks, both tangible and intangible? We here at Cotton Babies are convinced that self-care is an essential fundamental piece of the foundation of fruitful parenting. This is why we offer so many things to refresh you, mama!
First, let’s take care of one little pesky thought that all of us moms deal with: “NO, It is not selfish to splurge on yourself!” If you don’t even blink at buying your baby the latest bumGenius Limited Edition print (even though we all know, it’s kind of for you too), then you should also be considering treating yourself to some “pat-on-the-back” gifts as well!
