I am learning, slowly, the value of self care as a mother and wife.
Luckily, I was recently given some dry green clay to make masks (thanks Jessica) as a gift from Italy. This is the perfect excuse for a little “me” time.
Of course, mixing clay in the kitchen draws a crowd that follows me into the bathroom. Where they insist on being included and when I pin their hair back to join me, I realize that teaching them about self care is important. It’s really hard for me to relax, especially after a busy school year and the slow building of homework. But it is possible, with eyes closed, legs outstretched in sunshine, giggles in the background, and nothing but free time.
How’d it turn out? I had mike bring you a tube of it this time. It smells really nice too.
Hope to see you soon! Glad you are doing YOU time
I love the mask. The boys did too. My skin felt so soft and new when I was finished.
