All fellow Moms listen up! Sometimes the days are long. The rewards are in short supply. Life is exhausting.
Can I get a HECK YES from the crowds out there?
Lately I’ve been feeling a little bit exhausted and down. I’ve been single parenting more due my husband switching jobs and helping in the field. I’m grateful he got a new job for us and I love the fact that he is willing to help my family out with the fieldwork in the fall. Yet, sometimes, I’m a little bit bitter. I’m human. You get it, right?
Taking care of two little ones while working full-time can be exhausting. Heck, if I’m honest it’s a lot exhausting! I have a few tricks to get me through it though. One of them is starting my day out with my favorite flavor of Dunkin’ Donuts® Bakery Series® coffee. Sometimes it’s a little treat in the morning to get your day started on the right foot!
Another trick is simple meals are the winner. Honestly, you guys. The simpler the better. We are talking scrambled eggs, cold cereal etc. The kids love it and I love it. Minimal prep, time and clean up. My sanity is worth it. They are fed and happy. This means Mom is happy too!
Third tip, carve out some special time for you. This could be a bubble bath, reading, relaxing on the couch watching crap TV etc. You get the point!
Another one of my tricks is treating myself to things that make me feel special! I might not be able to get to a fancy coffee shop on Saturday morning because the thought of getting two children dressed and out the door when I don’t have to is beyond me. During the week the feat of doing this leaves me feeling like I ran a marathon before I’ve even left the house!
Instead, I make it at home and treat myself to a few minutes of living in bliss and acting like my life is calm and peaceful. I might turn the cartoons on and drown out the kids because, well, sometimes you resort to that babysitter!
One of my favorite new inventions for the weekend is a Cinnamon Roll Latte using my favorite Dunkin’ Donuts® Bakery Series® coffee. It’s quick and easy, which is a must in my life. It if takes too long the kids will interrupt my “me time” before I get started!
These Lattes come together in minutes so you can be sipping them, alone, and enjoying a few minutes of bliss.
If you want to go all out and invite someone to your party this recipe makes two so feel free to do that!
Oh, and I’ll admit it, I don’t just enjoy these on weekend mornings. I enjoy them after the kids go to bed during the week to! If you want to get all crazy you can do that too!
Pick up some Dunkin’ Donuts Cinnamon Coffee Roll Bakery Series® Coffee and treat yourself to a Cinnamon Roll Latte as soon as possible!
