Sure, an all-inclusive in the Mayan sounds delicious right about now. Or an entire day at the spa. We both know that isn’t going to happen, but that doesn’t meant you can’t still pamper yourself.
There will be moments, even minutes where you’ll have time to yourself. Honest. Even if you have more than one child. It’s especially important to find that time, (ask for it) during the post-partum period. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Be bossy! Visitors are welcome, sure – if you want. If you don’t want, that’s perfectly acceptable (and even suggested), too.
Those visitors? They should come bearing food, rubber gloves to scrub your toilet and some time/energy to play with your other kids if you have them. Slight digression. Back to the pampering…
About the Mayan? Book a trip for a year from now. Serious. Just do it. With or without the wee ones). There are some fabulous all inclusives that cater wonderfully to families. Or? A year is plenty enough time to arrange where the kids can stay for the 4+ days you may decide to go off and stoke the central fires for.
Are you new momma’s taking some time for yourself when the chaos permits?
