Hello all you mothers out there. I got to thinking, I can't remember the last time I did something JUST for me LOL so I thought I would ask you all, when was the last time you did something for you and what was it? What do you think qualifies as something just for you? Buying yourself something, having a girls night or going away without the kids for the weekend?

Spending sometime for self is very important to moms, especially for moms who have kids below age 5. I think they have to spend more time for the kids in which they even forget to take care of themself. I need some time for my own..This time helps me to recharge the battery in my body - it can either be a good rest, reading a book, watching a TV show or even browsing. If I do not get this little hours of time for me, I'm sure I would go mad. In addition time for taking care of my self is also essential. Lastly I spent some hours at a nearby beauty saloon for facials and body spa. This helped to refresh me. My hubby and my child had a great shopping..I think that costed more than my spa expenditures..But the time I spent for me was the best thing that stays in my heart.

Yes it is great when we get these small things for just us. I am a single mother of 2 so it is harder for me to get that time to myself. Thanx for your response sweety

I was able to do something just for me on Saturday. My husband had purchased a gift certificate for me for a local spa after I gave birth to our third child. We got one for Mom for mother's day and we went together while my husband and my dad looked after the kids for the afternoon. It was terrific!!!!!!

I am a 51 year old mother with grown adult children. I left my husband recently and so now all of my time is for me. I take long bubble baths and I go fo walks and I lay down and read. I go out with the girls when ever I want and I just stay home when I want. So for me, every day I do something for myself and loving it. I go shopping for myself when ever I want. Life is great.

It's not very often I get to do something on my own. Normally, I get an hour once a week, to go to my doctor's appointment. So I signed up for summer classes, and I'm taking one class that requires me to actually go to class. So my son gets to spend 6-9:30 with his grandparent's every tuesday and thursday until august 8th. The last time I actually went out, was in february I believe. I went to a club with my cousin, and just didn't have any fun. So I haven't really done that since. I bought a nice shirt for my birthday, and then I just went ahead and bought next months diapers, wipes, and bought my son 7 new shirts, and a "big" toy. I like spending my time and money on him. He deserves it. But I understand about needing a moment to breathe, and just sitting back and relaxing. It's difficult to get away when your so committed. Hope you find something just for you. = )

The last time I did something just for myself was a couple of weekends ago when I went to the casino with my little boy toy. I did end up loosing my a$$ up there, but I had fun because for a whole weekend I was at peace. No yelling and hollering, got to sleep in. Even my little boy toy was gentlemanly and got breakfast so I didn't even have to get up!!! It will probably be eons before I get to something like that again.

I bought some Mets baseball tickets . That is about it lately and I can't wait till they are here in town so I can enjoy the night out with my bestie who is coming in from out of town for the weekend . Usually , I do small things I love that sometimes make me feel sane like swim , or walk .

Hi there StrawberryKisses, I wish to become a mother but I am not yet...LOL, I am bored alone all day during weekdays especially if none of my friends will visit, I remember last time I treated myself, I had some foot massage and it was very relaxing and soothing!
