I have written a lot about how working moms should enjoy their families and their weekends. However, it is also important for working moms to take time for themselves. Last week, I was fortunate enough to have a night out with some other hard working moms. We went to see a complimentary screening of the movie, “Bad Moms”!

Working Mom Wisdom: Enjoy Your Weekends! #IdlewildPark #IdlewildPA

I received complimentary admission to the park for me and my family. All opinions are my own.

If us working moms aren't careful, our weekends can be consumed by errands and chores. Given our jam packed weeks that makes sense. However, allowing your weekends to be stressful and devoid of fun is a mistake. In light of all of the violence that has been going in our world, we owe it to ourselves to enjoy our families as much as possible. And the weekends are the best time for fun!

Working Mom Tip: Take Your Lunch Break

If you are a working mom of small children you need a break. And, that break is not often found at home. I'm not talking about the break you get at night after you put the kids to sleep and you pass out. That's not a break, that is simply exhaustion personified!

I am talking about a midday break to help you clear your head, relax, and focus on you. What is this fantasy world I'm referencing? It is called "lunch".

Working Mom Tip: Eat Healthy

Healthy Food
As working moms, despite our limited time, we strive to do a good job at work and at home is high. We recognize that we can’t do a good job unless we are healthy. And we also understand that we have failed our children if they are not healthy.

So, we strive to make healthy choices. That said, “healthy” can be a moving target. We accept certain truths to be self-evident.
