Life Without Baby

Filling the silence in the motherhood discussion

What have you done for you lately? June 14, 2010

On my street, Sunday mornings bring a steady parade of dad’s with their offspring. I imagine the mom’s tucked under fluffy down comforters, sipping freshly squeezed orange juice and enjoying a couple of hours with a good book and a bottle of nail polish.

Granted, this is an image from my fantasy of motherhood, but it reminds me that mothers (at least the lucky ones) sometimes get special credit in the form of a Sunday morning in bed, an afternoon at the spa, or even a whole day once a year devoted to them.

So, as non-mom’s I ask you: what have you done for you lately? If you haven’t treated yourself for a while, maybe this should be the week. I’ve booked an afternoon off for a massage and facial this week. What are you going to do for yourself?

    Well, my BD is this week. I’m a massage therapist who rarely gets a massage, maybe . . . except i’ve so many other things to do this week. Maybe next.

    Hope you enjoy your massage & facial. 🙂

      Ah, carers and healers who don’t care for and heal themselves. I know those people! Well, have a happy birthday and see if you can’t squeeze in that massage soon. 🙂
