Baby Boot Camp® Blog
Becoming a full-time stay-at-home mom (SAHM) to my two VERY active boys is a blessing and I enjoy it, but it's also a challenge (like, will I ever pee alone again?). One of the hardest decisions that I had to make was whether or not to leave my teaching career to stay home..and it was not a decision I took lightly and, in fact, I relied heavily on my tribe of Baby Boot Camp Moms for input. Now I'm here and I'm ready to share some words of wisdom.
The Oxford dictionary defines self-care as "the practice of taking an active role in protecting one’s own well-being and happiness, in particular during times of stress." Self-care is a hot topic right now, especially among mothers. What's interesting is that, while this definition is relevant across the multi-year journey that is motherhood, the actual practice of self-care takes on different meanings at different stages of motherhood.
