A Moment for Mommy

Upon my own reflection and thanks to the comments provided by other mommies - I'm resolved to the fact that to some degree - I'm going to keep the Mommy Brain for at least the foreseeable future. Ok fine. Other things I'd like to keep are also my sanity and so tonight I paid tribute to National Bubble Bath Day. Who knew such a day existed? I didn't, but Sweet 'n Sassy Girls posted about it and after my husband got home, we had dinner, cleaned up after dinner and got the boy content........... I drew a bath. A lavender bath salt and bubble bath bath. Ahhhhh

I have not had a bubble bath since my second trimester of pregnancy which ended in early June. Once I hit the third trimester getting in and out of the tub was not a graceful nor relaxing experience and thus not an option. So tonight I enjoyed 30 minutes of uninterrupted relaxing in a bath ME time. I had music playing, candles lit and I laid in the tub all to myself. Ahhhhhhh.

I think a nice bubble bath every six months or so is just what I need. I might have to squeeze in another one before June. Perhaps on January 21st which also happens to Squirrel Appreciation Day. Who makes this stuff up, seriously?

A bubble bath sounds good! I don't think I've even had one since I've been married!
