It’s Mother’s Day. And I have been meaning all week to pen a retrospective of motherhood, a warm fuzzy piece about how grateful I am to be a mom. I mean… it really is a miracle that we have two healthy girls. I even sat in awe at my daughter’s preschool Mother’s Day tea this week, so incredibly happy that I have two babies to share this special day with.

So then I did something even crazier… I took at 20 minute hot shower. Complete with shampoo, conditioner, mint salt scrub, and I even shaved. I cried for awhile too… because I needed to let myself feel whatever was moving through me.
So moms… on this day that was created back in 1908 and declared a holiday by Woodrow Wilson, I say close the bathroom door! Take back some private time and put yourself first….as often as you can.
