BLOG_giveaways

10253972_10152835880264816_8644747841802596810_nWhen you're a mom, you're on duty 24/7, and it can be hard to catch a break or find a few minutes to yourself. We all know how great it feels to go to the bathroom by yourself every once in a while, enjoy some much needed R&R, or even skip out on a cloth diaper laundry day every once in a while. 

When you're a mom, your needs typically come last, and you are constantly putting other people before yourself.

But when you're a mom, it's also important to do things for yourself. You know, something JUST FOR MOM. Whether it's take a nap, read a book, knit, cook, sew, paint, garden, or really anything else you enjoy, treat yourself! 

For this week's giveaway, we want to treat one special mama, who will win an "I'm a Genius Travel Mug," a "You're One Good Mum T-shirt," a $20 Gift Certificate to Cotton Babies, and a bumGenius, Flip or Econobum cloth diaper of their choice! 

To enter, tell us how you like to spend your "me" time.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

    My Me Time: I work part-time so on the days I am off, while baby is sleeping I catch up on Netflix, Podcasts, or my favorite blogs! Also, in a cup of coffee and I’m doing just great! Doesn’t happen to often anymore, but a solo trip to Target or the Mall is also good!

    Ever since I was a young teen, my “me time” took place soaking in the tub with a good book. And, sometimes, a little chocolate. I got this habit from my mom and my sister was the same way. The power bill must have been atrocious with the 3 of us!

  • Beth Ann said...
    September 1, 2014 at 7:31 am

  • Sam C said...

    My “me” time lately is enough to work-out or shower… sometimes I have enough time to even shave my legs! I would really like to be able to just clean my house in peace and without the extra load on my back. I don’t ask for much 😉

  • Anel said...
    August 31, 2014 at 8:06 pm

  • Carly said...
    August 28, 2014 at 8:58 am

    To be honest, me time right now is doing laundry. With exclusively breast feeding and cloth diapering a 1 month old I don’t get much down time that doesn’t involve laundry or napping!

  • Alexis E said...

    August 28, 2014 at 8:39 am

    Before I had my munchkin I was an avid reader so when I get some me time, I love nothing better than to fill the tub with some nice hot water & bubbles and settle in for a nice relaxing soak with a good book. It’s even better with a glass of wine. If the water has gone cool by the time I finish, I know all is well outside the bathroom and then I’m truly relaxed! Yey

    I spend my me time, what very little I get checking emails and enjoying my coffee:) I’d love to get a haircut and color I just can’t find the time.

    I’ve recently began taking yoga at a local studio… That time is precious.

    I like to work on a sewing project or do my nails… Although a lot of my “me” time ends up getting spent accomplishing things that I can’t do while my little ones are awake. But that’s ok too! 🙂

    “Me” time these days is usually grabbing a quick shower or hitting the gym. Shopping, mani/pedis, & coffee is what I’d really like to do for “me” time, but it’s all about priorities these days.
