Mama Maintenance Mornings

We celebrated our 22nd (dating) anniversary last night :)

We saw a film ("The Way", directed by Emilio Estevez, I really enjoyed it) and ate out together sans les enfants. Our boys spent the night with their grandparents and this morning T slipped off nice and early to collect them... for dad-school! 

So, I love my kids, right. I purposefully choose to spend almost everyday with them. But, don't imagine for a minute that I no-likey Mama Time!

I ate breakfast (not a regular part of life here!) in the robe that my own sweet mama gave me yesterday and then jumped in the shower and washed my hair (cheap-thrills-for mama's ;) before realising that this morning was my opportunity to do some Mama Maintenance !! 

So my shower turned to bath while I scoured the cupboard for razor, brown sugar scrub, face mask and hairtreatment. Ooo! 

I am a girly-girl. I like pretty. 

It's funny that I ended up with a family of boys because I reckon I would have been awesome at accessorising party dresses, lavishing polka dots, seizing sparkles and, yes, painting ickle toenails. But I don't have any takers here... So I did my own. Fairy-floss pink.

T doesn't *cough* know our new plan yet. Lol. 
But I think dad-school / Mama Maintenance Morning needs to be a regular thing around here. He would love to (and has self-designated sport & writing as his core subjects) but he is pretty focused on work - as is necessary in a 1-income family. Hmmm... but, maybe, once a month? 

Which makes me wonder - how do you find time for yourself? And what is your favourite type of Mama Maintenance
