But as a typical mum, I am great at putting everyone else's needs before my own, but that's not necessarily a great idea all the time. Stressed mummy equals kids playing up, picking up on it, knowing that your attention is somewhere else, and acting up accordingly. Or at least this is what happens in my house.
Last Christmas, I wad given a voucher for an evening with my partner at Nirvana Spa, which I hadn't got round to booking, mainly due to not wanting to leave Grapie. But she is 14 months old now and I think thats probably long enough for me to deserve an evening out. So I have now booked my date to go, next month on my birthday, and as my other half is coming too it will also be our first date night since Grapie was born!
