Moment of truth: when I weaned my babies I was happy. It was time for both of us to gain independence. Here’s how I did it with all three.
Almost a week ago I had a slight breakdown as I took a look at my life and realized that I’d let go of and stopped nurturing my friendships. Motherhood is a lonely road and is made more lonely by allowing yourself to be invested in just one aspect of your life–your kids. It was at this time I realized that I needed to do a better job in nurturing friendships because ultimately, it nurtures myself.
I was browsing on Instagram the other day and one of the fellow crunchy moms I follow said something that I felt with all my being. Summed up, she said that being someone who lives a “crunchy” lifestyle is hard. It’s tiring to pay attention to everything we consume, put on our skin, clean our homes with, make sure that our clothes are made from eco-friendly fibers and more. But we do it with intentions of providing our loved ones a healthier lifestyle and friends, we need the pampering–but not from Calgon. In order to pamper the crunchy mom in your life, you need to go about things a little differently.
