When I took on motherhood , I truly allowed it to become my world. I am at stay at home mother and although I am a student and small business owner, everything still revolves around Asher’s needs and schedule. I must admit , I love it here! So much that at times it is more difficult to say that I need a break.

I’m not sure why, but I have equated needing a break as a mom to being weak or incapable of performing my duties as a parent. This is such irrational thinking. We need breaks from everything in life! Typically we get two days off a week from work, time to breathe from family and friends, even time away from our spouse. It is okay to need a few hours or even days away from your child! Especially when you’re with your child 24 hours a day , 7 days a week.

I am working on not being so hard on myself and understanding that in order to be the best mother I can be , I have to take care of myself! There is no way that Asher can be at his best if his mother is not at hers.

So this Saturday night I am collecting beautiful moments with my girls . Mini golf, dinner, and drinks WITHOUT baby Asher . Instead of allowing myself to feel guilty , I am going to enjoy myself .

Cheers to momma’s night out !
