Let’s face it. There’s nothing easy about this job. This motherhood gig isn’t always what we imagined, is it? There’s nothing easy about getting up multiple times in the night with a scared child, dealing with tantrums, cleaning up vomit, or making sure your children are well fed every single day. It’s just not easy.
But you know what? We can choose to take all the difficult parts of motherhood and let them consume us. We can let it all come crashing down until our tired souls are filled with overwhelm. Or, there’s another path. We can choose to embrace motherhood in all its messy, not-as-we-imagined beauty. Embrace the mess. Embrace the tiredness. And most of all…take a break.
Yes, that’s right. I’m telling you, mama, to take a break. Take some time to refresh. You don’t have to give motherhood 100 percent of you 100 percent of the time. You’re still a good mom. Actually, when you do that, you’re a better mom.
That, my friends, is the #1 reason you need to make taking a little time for yourself a priority. It makes you a better mom. Let that sink it. You will be a better mom. You need something just for you. You give your kids all of you most of the time, but save some moments for yourself.
Maybe it’s when you’re exercising. Maybe it’s when you get to soak in the tub at the end of a long day. Or maybe you can steal a few moments to read your favorite magazine and have a snack that’s made just for you.
Del Monte has just the snack you need. Del Monte Fruit Refreshers are the first ever fruit cup made just for adults. They are a modern, delightful twist on fruit cups that combine exciting fruits with delicious slightly sweetened fruit water to create enticing flavor combinations made for people seeking a healthy adult snacking option as a pick me up during their day.
Del Monte Fruit Refreshers contain one serving of fruit, with no high fructose corn syrup, no artificial flavors or artificial sweeteners, no GMOs, and are BPA intent-free and with 100 calories or less per serving.
You can choose from two unique and delicious new flavors: Pineapple with Passion Fruit Flavor and Mandarin Oranges with Coconut Water. I tried them both and loved them, but my favorite was the oranges in coconut water. Perfect for a quick afternoon break with a magazine!
I’m busy; you’re busy. Being a mom is tough. But don’t be a martyr. Don’t wear your busyness like a badge. Embrace the small moments when you can take a break and refresh. You can find Del Monte Fruit Refreshers nation wide. Follow along on Facebook with the hashtag #TimeToRefresh.
