Taking a little “me” time!
I shared a few weeks ago how I struggle with creativity and motivation while I’m pregnant. Not pregnant, I’m the person that needs 5-6 hours of sleep at most and I wake up ready to attack the day. Pregnant, I struggle to even stay awake 5-6 hours a day. The mom guilt (and wife guilt) is strong, y’all! It seems so irresponsible to sit on my couch and read a book or nap or simply veg while there is a load of laundry (or 5) to fold, supper to cook, a dishwasher to unload, and a blog that is faltering quickly because, you know- no motivation or creativity.
Today, Katie over at RebelPlum reminded me that I can’t take care of my own family if I’m not taking care of myself first. Why is it so hard to just give myself a little grace? Thanks, Katie for the encouragement I needed today!

“Life is an emotional roller coaster some days. But the sun will shine again! I have to remind myself today (and everyday) that it will get better. “
Valerie says, “I love an easy recipe! I can’t wait to make some yummy pumpkin seeds!”
Kate says, “This is a battle I have with myself, too. I struggle so much with motivation and exhaustion while pregnant and I feel so guilty when I take the time to sit and rest while the kids nap or turning on the iPad so I can have a few minutes of quiet. Thank you, Katie, for the reminder that my health (and sanity!!!) is important, too!”
Alison says, “This. It’s important. I need someone in my corner & you need someone in your corner. We were not made to live isolated. We were made for authentic relationship.“
