Y’all. I wrote on my Instagram post yesterday all of the feels I had after experiencing my first Family Day with MY family. I just could not have asked for a better day to remind me of all that I have and how blessed I am! I know I should feel that way every day but in truth, this past year has been a blur of sleepless nights, exhausting days, and the learning curves of becoming a new parent. It’s been hard to live in the moment and really soak in all of the emotion.
I would be remiss if I didn’t give a shout out to my other half once in a while, and Valentine’s day seemed like a good excuse to do so.
Obviously my most special Valentine this year is my baby boy but I also plan on carving out time with my hubs and it’s not going to require finding a babysitter or even leaving the house. Some of these suggestions can include the little ones but I think it’s still important to get that one on one time with your partner if you can! Here are my suggestions:
Ask any new mother on mat leave what the greatest invention in the last 20 years has been and there will be a resounding cheer for online shopping. Because now that I have a kid and showers are far and few between, I like that I can still engage in some retail therapy without having to pretend that I have it all together on the days when I really don’t.
