Id like to try something new here. Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think.
It hit me that it is EXTREMELY EASY for us moms to put ourselves on the back burners. Dont get me wrong, I believe that selflessness is a GOOD trait. However, not when it means that we are no longer taking care of ourselves. I believe that we teach our children mostly by example. Therefore, I believe that its incredibly important for us to continue taking care of ourselves. Do you see where I am going?
So, On Mondays I am going to attempt to post about taking care of ourselves as Moms. Taking those few minutes betweem therapy appointments, strapping on braces, cooking, cleaning, cathing, and all the other things that are in our lives to stop and take a deep breath.
So here's my very first one. Most of you have probably already heard variations of it, but I think its still worth it! : )
ALL NATURAL COFFEE BODY SCRUB
just use the amounts to your liking, you cant really go wrong.
Used Coffee Grinds
Ground up Oatmeal (just throw it in a blender)
Olive Oil (if you have dry skin)
Mix it all up and take out enough to put in your shower for a week, the rest should stay in your fridge. I'm telling you, my skin has NEVER been so soft. (grew up in Florida, Ive practically got alligator skin from too much time at the beach.)
So, I hope you like this idea. We will give it a try and I'll continue based on your response!
thanks again ladies, for all your support.
