Mothers Need Time-Out’s Too!

Mothers Need Time-Outs, Too: It’s Good to be a Little Selfish – It Actually Makes You a Better Mother
Authors: Susan Callahan, Anne Nolan, Katrin Schumann.
It was while in Canada a few years ago that I came across this book, while taking ‘time-out’ in a Borders book shop, Seattle’s Best coffee in hand.
Mother’s Day is the US is at the beginning of May and is such a big deal there too, with books, gifts and ideas to keep Mom happy displayed in many, many stores.
It was this book that opened my eyes to the real sense of what Motherhood leaves us with (if we let it) – feeling undervalued!  This book steers you away from that, allowing you to know and believe that ‘taking time-out for you’ is not only acceptable, it’s essential for you to be the Mother your family deserve.
It was the title and concept of this book that led me to write an article for NCT Chorley & Leyland’s Award Winning Newsletter and later to start the webpage ‘Time Out for Mums’. Hopefully the site will grow to be popular and inspire many Mums :o)


About HonieMummy (HonieBuk)

Mum of two girls (16 & 9) and step-Mum to one boy (15). All of whom are bright, fun-loving, creative and musical and make me proud and despite his disability (CP) my step-son and family face challenges with a smile and the will to succeed. Love to travel (mainly US/Canada/Scotland), passionate about photography, music is a must, always in HoniesKitchen, love a bit of crafting and I'm learning to knit (maybe even crochet). I'm a networking junkie and of course there has to be time (quality time) with my amazing family! I like to Blog infrequently whenever it takes my fancy and I don't mind sharing my ups and downs, advice and querky ideas with you all. I will mostly post recipes and photos of food, family and travel. I love to review products that my family and me would use - I kinda consider it my 'duty' to let you all know if something is as good as it says on the tin and a 'must buy' product, that all families should know about. Find these in HonieLikes. If you like what you see, please tell me - I work hard at these things :o)
