This post is sponsored by Cottonelle, but my appreciation of their fresh care flushable cleansing cloths is all my own!
I put a lot of effort into taking care of my family, but I do forget to slow down and take care of myself.
I am a typical Mom who is busy, and just wants to accomplish the housework, get the kids to and from activities, and put together a nice meal that we all can enjoy together.
However, it is unfortunate that I am always rushing around, and I rarely even have the time to sit and go to the bathroom. Don’t get me wrong it, it comes with the job description and I am happy to do it, but it would be nice to stop and have a break every once in a while.
Recently, I decided it was important to slow down and carve out a little “ME” time. I have accomplished this by going outside for few minutes and gardening or making a quick trip to the store while hubby watches the kids. Some mornings I get up a little earlier (while everyone is still asleep), drink a cup of coffee, and read the paper or watch the news. However, my newest addition to this “ME” time is the cherished Bathroom Break.
The Bathroom Break may sound a little silly, but with 3 kids it is quite the undertaking. The first step to grabbing this moment required some supplies, so I headed to my local CVS and used a $1.50 off coupon to purchase Cottonelle Flushable Cleansing Cloths along with Cottonelle Clean Care Toilet Paper.
Of course while I was there I bought myself makeup, shampoo, and hair spray.
Next, I got one of my chalkboard signs, and wrote, “Bathroom Break“. I told hubby and the kids what it meant, and that the kids needed to entertain themselves for a few minutes. Of course I made sure they were all safe, and instructed them if there was an emergency to come and get me.
Once they were all set, I hung the sign on the door and closed it. I sat down, read through a fashion magazine, and I had a little quiet time. It was so nice.
When I was finished with my break, I made sure to give myself a little pampering with Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Cleansing Cloths. They are super soft, smell great, and leave me with a clean feeling.
After that, I even put on a little make-up and fixed my hair.
Do you know how awesome it is to have 10 uninterrupted bathroom minutes to a Mom? SO AWESOME!!!
Do you carve out some “Me” time each day? What do you do when you take a “Break” ?

I think I am a much happier person, along with a better wife and mother, when I have a few moments to myself.
