Mom Confessions: I took the weekend off

I had SUCH a good weekend.

I've been having a hard time lately feeling stuck in routine and very constrained by my responsibilities. This weekend it felt great to not worry about time or responsibilities and just enjoy being with BabyCakes and Hubs. We played games, played catch and soccer, painted, colored, enjoyed cartoons, and had an overall good time.

It's funny because even though I also cleaned the whole first floor it wasn't a drag. Because my mindset since I got off work Friday was not to worry about things I need to do, I've been cleaned up when I wanted without the pressure of feeling like I NEEDED to get things clean.

You have to take time to recharge in order to succeed.

I hope to take the happiness from this weekend into the upcoming hectic week. I will remind myself to take breaks, and enjoy myself without looking at the clock when I can.

I wish you a week full of self-care, fun moments, periodic disregard for responsibility, smiles, and laughter. 

How was your weekend?



  1. Sounds like a wonderful way to spend the weekend. Ours was so busy - swim championships for both kids all day Saturday and Sunday but both teams were named divisional Champions for the season and my kids were thrilled. Makes every second worth it to see them so happy!!

    1. Totally. Their happiness is worth all of the hustle.

  2. That sounds like a fabulously relaxing weekend! We worked more on getting our house ready to put on the market (will it ever be done?!), but did enjoy some nice family time on Saturday. It's definitely a Monday when I feel like I could use another weekend. ;)

    1. Good luck getting your house ready to put on the market! We'll be doing similar at some point this year to get it nice for tenants.

  3. Amen! We need to recharge our batteries once in a while! Aren't weekends where you don't have to go anywhere so great! I'm so happy you took this weekend to enjoy your family!
