With Mother’s Day right around the corner, I have gift ideas on my mind. To be honest, I’ve gotten about five different gifts for Grambo already and might have given four of them to her already! I’ve just always found it easy to shop for her and I find it hard to resist when I find more than one thing that I really love.
But my most recent Mother’s Day gift for both of us was an evening of relaxation. She works almost as hard as I do because she lives with us and is with the kids so often. She doesn’t get a break like many grandparents. She is right in the middle of everything with J and I. So we were definitely both overdue for a little relaxation.
Mothers Day Gift Idea: Relaxation
It’s been hard to really find time to fully relax over the past few months and I know my body was definitely letting me know it needed some help. I hold my stress in my neck and shoulders just like my mom. And recently I was having headaches that I’m pretty sure were caused by how tight my shoulders were. It’s been a stressful few months. And Grambo has been right by my side
So instead of buying big gifts or going out to eat, we decided to take ourselves out for a massage and a bit of a girls night.
Grambo was pretty excited about heading out to get a massage. We’ve only been talking about doing since before C was born! We just get so busy putting the kids first that we don’t always stop to take much needed time for ourselves. I’m definitely like my mother in that respect. But once we decide to do something, we commit!
Rate your areas of pain or stress? I could have circled 10 for almost all of them! Now that’s a sign that mom needs a massage. I figured Mother’s Day was the perfect excuse, right? And it’s okay for moms to give themselves a gift sometimes too, right? I’m voting yes on that because I know I will definitely be gifting myself another visit to Massage Envy!
Massage Envy lived up to all my hopes and I walked out feeling much more relaxed. My therapist listened to me concerns and worked on my problem areas. Both Grambo and I walked out feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. I don’t think I’ve slept as well as I did that night in a very long time! Even waking up to feed C, I still woke up feeling well rested in the morning!
It was definitely one of the best gifts I could have given myself!
