Who needs a spa day? It is so easy to get caught up with how busy life can get. I make sure that every friday morning it is spa day for me and my daughter. Now I am not talking going to some crazy expensive spa, I mean I set up a spa in my house. It is our special time to spend together and have one on one time. Here is how our spa days usually work.
1. My daughter likes to start with a big breakfast. most of the time it consists of eggs, bacon, hash browns, and waffles or pancakes. I let my daughter help make breakfast. From cracking eggs to mixing the batter for pancakes or waffles. She loves helping.
2. After breakfast it is bubble bath time. I let her explore all of my bath bubbles, bath bombs, and bath oils. I always have so many and it seems like I can never use them. Now 9 times out of 10 she will always pick bath bubbles and a bath bomb. Of course this is after she smells every single thing I have. Her favorite part of the bath is not the bath bubbles or the bath bombs it is getting to pick put a chaper book so she can relax in the water while I read to her.
3. After a relaxing bath she gets to pick out a face mask. yes that is right. Again I have so many that I never get to use. Of course now I buy the kid friendly ones. once her face mask is on I set up a pedicure/manicure station. She gets to soak her feet and drink tea.
Now I know what everyone is thinking, and yes it is a lot. Doing all that for my daughter once a week takes your mind off of mostly everything else. For those few hours my mind is at peace because my daughter tells me stories and I am too busy focusing on her to think about all the other things that are going on. It has help me reduce stress and anexity from the week.
