I try hard to only choose sponsored posts that are a good fit with things I would normally buy or enjoy, but the timing for this post was uncanny. My son’s first day of preschool did not go as smoothly as I’d hoped, and I found myself wandering to the nearest grocery store with my daughter, checking my phone every five minutes to see if it was time to pick him up yet. I don’t drink coffee and try to avoid soda so I grabbed a Kiwi Strawberry Snapple® to treat myself in the car – it’s a tasty break in my afternoon that brightens my mood.
Fortunately, it is rare that I have such a rough day that I need to go buy one in the middle of the day, but I do frequently grab one when out shopping and then save it for once the kids are in bed. I curl up on the couch with a fun movie or show and something creative in my lap, drink by my side. Making something with my hands relaxes me and feels rewarding after a day of picking up/refereeing on repeat. I thought I’d share a free embroidery pattern for one of my parenting mantras – so I got to relax while I made it and also hope that it will help me relax during the day!
