Thursday Giveaway: Just for Mom

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.

    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

  134. Sheena says:

    I spend me time either reading a book, catching up on tv shows or getting a manicure/pedicure.

    This would be wonderful!

  144. Andy Reynolds says:

    I would go to yoga! Planning to go tonight and enjoy it!
