It is the giant backpacks walking down my street that get me every year. This year my daughter didn't even give me a hug and a kiss as she ran fearlessly onto the playground.
I begin to also mourn the loss of summer on the first day of school (despite fall being my very favourite season). I miss the freedom, ease, vacation and camp life.
September is such a busy time in many households. As Mammas it is a time to really prioritize self-care, so we can show up as our best self for all those around us, as we strive to support each of them in transition.
Whether it is a quick walk around the block, a cup of tea and a good book, a visit to the spa, or a fitness class. Take the time each day or week for your Mamma.
