There comes a time in every mother’s life where she has to admit that ‘me time’ is just impossible.  I call this time “Summer”.  With three young children now home 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and my imagination flailing on only day 3, I am floundering in the water struggling for air.  Much less finding time to rejuvenate my mommy motivation.

So, I came up with a plan.  For my sanity and to save my children’s childhood summer memories.

I am using them.  To be my pedicurist, my masseuse and my relaxation coaches!  And while employing them, I will relax and enjoy my favorite treat in a glass!  International Delight Mocha Iced Coffee!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this ‘spoil me rotten but in a price range I can afford’ Iced Coffee drink!  I spend no more than $3.63 a carton – the two pack at Sam’s Club is even LESS per carton – and I can have at least 3-4 a week if I so choose!

To prepare for my wonderful 20 minutes of my kids doing nothing but focusing on pampering me – thus silencing the “Mommy, can I?”, “Mommy, I want!” and “MOMMEEEEEE”s that I hear all day, every day (and sometimes in my sleep), I headed to the store to get my Mocha Iced Coffee.  I noticed that there is really nothing else like this on the market today.  There are creamers and coffees that have to be brewed, but this is the only one where I can take it home, open it up, pour it in a glass and drink it!

Plus, you can dress it up for your special ME time if you want to!  Add whipped cream and chocolate shavings, add frozen raspberries,  sliced strawberries or just have it like it is.  No matter how you do it, it will be de-vine!

Once home I tried – for days -to get 15 minutes to myself to open my little goodie bag I got from International Delight to help me get motivated to relax – thank you so much – but I could not do it with three, Summer loving, kids around.

So, the other day, in deperate need of a break, I hired them!  And amazingly enough, they happily obliged!  I handed them nail polish for my mani/ pedi, lotion for my tired legs, a brush for the bird’s nest I pull into a ponytail and put my oldest to work on a shoulder massage!

I sat outside, happily letting my kids slather my legs, paint all over my hands and pamper me as only little ones can!  Messily!  But I did not care!  I had my glass of International Delight Mocha Iced Coffee and a few minutes to unwind while my children too ‘taking care of mommy’ very seriously.

And then, as a surprise, my two oldest seranaded me with their favorite song!  I was a very happy mommy!

I felt like I got some down time even with my kids right at my feet, literally, and I love that I have this great drink that I love to relax with!

Save on the coffee house costs and spoil yourself rotten at home!  Head to Sam’s and get your two pack and hire your kids!  Best afternoon me time ever!
