It is important for everyone to take the for themselves. If you are a parent or a parent of a child with special needs it is one of the most important things to do for yourself.
On Saturdays Chloe spends the day with her Dad. She looks forward to it every week. Now that she is in school a few days a week I try to get all of my errands done then, so on Saturday I can stay home and relax. I read, watch a movie and even take a nap. Ok I do laundry at the apartment laundry room, but that’s not stressful. Lol.
I decided to make this change in routine once Chloe started school. Our weeks are busy. She has school 2 days a week right now, plus we have therapy 4 days a week. The appointments for her leg and teeth issues are scheduled and it will be a long process for both. So I told myself I need to take a day to just relax. No errands at all. Stay home and chill.
Today is my first day doing so and it has been very nice. I should probably take a nap, but I’m enjoying reading a bit and watching a few movies. It is hard for some parents to get a break because maybe you don’t have help. Even if it’s after your children go to bed, try to relax a little. You deserve it🥰
I hope all of you are staying healthy ❤️
