Enough Time Moms: I’m Dating My Husband, Again

Date night! Does the thought of going out, alone, with your spouse, cross your mind? Sure it does! Remember, we all used to do it. Dating. The getting dressed up. Going to a movie, a play, dancing. Oh, nostalgia!

After kids though, about the only time for date night is somewhere between 2 and 4 am. So, does sleep count? Why is it that we can plan a playdate with the deft touch of a ninja yet when it comes to date night it’s as if we’re unable to even read a calendar?

I am the featured blogger on Enough Time Moms today and I’d love if you’d share your thoughts on date night!

Enough Time Moms: Is Glitz and Glamour Still Possible?

When was the last time you got dressed, did your hair and put on makeup. Just because it was Tuesday? Not because you had to be somewhere, just because you felt like it. Remember those days where it was’t a chore?

makeup imageI go through phases where I dress as if I’m going to an office job, rather than just working at home. Sure, I do errands and meet people most days. But the idea of ‘glitz and glamour’ is more like a special occasion than every day. Really, though, shouldn’t it be about looking and feeling our best?

I’d love to hear your thoughts on Glitz and Glamour after motherhood.

Enough Time Moms: A Little Self Indulgence

Maybe we think we’re being selfish when we’re doing something for ourselves? Unfortunately, selfish has such a negative connotation that many of us run in the opposite direction when we have the opportunity for a little self-indulgence. Little things, like a bubble bath or a nice piece of chocolate instead of the ninety-nine cent bag of crappy chocolate that’s just ‘good enough’.

Join me over at Enough Time Moms today where I’m sharing about being self-indulgent. Being a mom has amazing rewards, some of which we don’t reap until many years later. Besides rewarding ourselves, doing these little things sends a very powerful message to our children that it’s OK to do things for yourself.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on what little self indulgences you have (or, why, like me, you put everyone else first and don’t think doing for yourself is a priority).

Enough Time Moms: Redefining Perfect

 

I grew up in the 80s – big hair and all! I went to college knowing I could do whatever I wanted. I was also bombarded with the message of being the perfect wife, mother, executive, daughter, sister, friend and so much more. I could bring home the bacon AND fry it up in the pan! Those were the messages of my younger days.

So it was surprise when I got married that I was going to finish graduate school and work and clean and cook and entertain and volunteer and, and, and ….. I hear my friends talk about it being to much. Honestly, who cares that we have and do all these things if we’re hating every minute of it?

Join me today at Enough Time Moms as we discuss how toredefine perfect so we can actually enjoy what we have.

Enough Time Moms: Leader of the Circus

I’ve heard a few of my friends describe their household as a circus and their job as being the ringleader. We’re responsible for the show! Sometimes it feel like we’re cleaning up after the animals or trying to heard clowns out the door. No matter our job, we’re not just the juggler – who’s only on stage for a few minutes. From beginning to end, it’s the ringleader who keeps the circus moving. And as the circus moves from city to city, or in our case season to season, we have to adjust and keep everything running like clockwork

Join me over at Enough Time Moms today where we’re talking about how we manage the seasonal changes in our schedules. As we transition from summer to back to school to winter break into spring, it’s a lot to keep track of.

I’d love to hear your tips on how you keep your family running smoothly.
