Take Care of Yourself, Mom!

March 1, 2010


Momism (n) - a "mom saying" passed from one mother to another, often truer than one realizes at the time.

Have you heard this Momism?

“If Mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.”

It’s pretty true. Our frame of mind tends to spill over onto the rest of the household.

It’s time to indulge yourself. Find one little way to make yourself happy this week, Mom. Just a small thing.

Vow to take five minutes with a cup of tea.
Ask your husband to cover for a half hour so you can take a soak in the tub.
Read just a bit of that favorite book right before you nod off.
Get your hair trimmed.
Buy a new tube of lipstick.
Take a short walk – by yourself.

Remember, if Mama ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.

So, do everyone a favor and take care of yourself.

So true, but you forgot chocolate...snicker...pun intended.

Like Karen said.

If there's no chocolate in the house, mama can't be happy.

Sweet dreams.
