After a long day filled with meal prep, dishes, laundry, "don't jump on the couch", "leave your sister alone", "because I said so"...( I think you get the point) there's nothing better than a timeout. Yes it's true, Mommy's need timeouts too!
Whenever it's "Daddy's" turn to declare timeout in our house and the guilty child is screaming like the world is coming to an end, I very sarcastically mumble (usually out of said child's earshot)... "Can Mommy please go to timeout?" In all seriousness though, for a mom one of the greatest gifts to be given is a timeout. Even just 30 minutes where nobody expects anything... at all. A half an hour without cartoons, changing diapers, cleaning up crumbs and playing referee is honestly one of the best gifts ever! If you're a mom, you are probably silently nodding in agreement and if you aren't a mom and you can help make this happen for a mom, please do so. It's usually that little chunk of alone time that helps moms keep their sanity and it's much appreciated. (A funny side note; I'm currently sitting on the couch with a napping child while her two older siblings are home for a snow day. One of said siblings is building a stuffed animal pile to very loudly jump into and the other has mentioned boredom probably ten times in the past hour alone and he's not looking for suggestions to fix this. Que "Mommy needs a timeout")
There is a Blissful point to my Motherhood rant. Mother's Day is May 14th and I've got big plans for moms this year in terms of Pure Bliss. We've already established that a timeout is a great gift for mom, but even better, give her the tools to have a mini spa session with that time. Soaking or scrubbing away the stress of Motherhood can be so relaxing.
Be on the lookout for our Mother's Day Sets which will include:
Mommy Needs A timeout- This Set will include a Wine Soap, Body Scrub, Tub Truffle and Lotion in a Sangria Rose Fragrance, all in a cute wooden crate. (If your mom isn't into wine, I can make this set in any of our fragrances, just send me a message for special orders, no extra charge)
Cocktail Truffle Collection- 4 Tub Truffles, one each of Sangria Rose, Mojito, Pink Champagne, and Mimosa.
Mud Mask Collection- 4 Single Use Mud Masks with a mud mask brush and bowl. You get one each of Matcha Smoothie, Charcoal & Citrus, Cocoa & Chamomile and Sea Clay.
Pamper Your Feet Set- Includes Foot Soak, Foot Soap and Foot Butter
Green Thumb- A Green Thumb Soap and Hand Cream in a Terracotta pot
These are just a few ideas, more to come. Wishing you all Blissful Showers and Baths. -Cassie
