Valentine's Day for Single Parents
Love yourself. Too often moms pay so much attention to their kids' needs, that they put their own needs at the bottom of the list. Find some way to splurge, pamper and indulge yourself. What have you been wanting to do that you have shoved aside? What would make your heart sing?
It may be buying, eating or doing something that you never make the time for during the year. Get a massage, manicure, pedicure, facial; put highlights in your hair or get a new hairdo; treat yourself to fresh flowers or that cute pair of shoes; soak in a hot bubble bath and drink champagne; sign up for an activity of interest such as yoga, pottery, photography; walk on the beach, make a snow angel, swing on the swings. Meet a friend for lunch, or call someone you haven't heard from in a long time. When you treat yourself as special, it's great for you … and an important model for your kids.
