What do you do while your kids are asleep?
It took me so long to get into the groove of whether or not to relax or use it as a time to get things done.
I’m still not completely consistent, but I’ve begun to recognize that the times I give myself to breathe and relax really help my productivity in the long run.
A little bit of self-love can do wonders.
Fox is a really solid napper, going down soundly for 3-4 hours each day. That said, he goes to bed much later than we would like, making naps the most ideal time for my husband and I to sneak quality time in with each other.
Lately those moments look a lot like watching our favorite shows and movies (Currently: Dateline, Queer Eye, or a good old fashioned scary movie), snacking, and enjoying one of our favorite hobbies: photography.
Today we opted to build a little fort for Fox when he wakes up, snag some photos, and enjoy a nice cool snack.
It gets crazy hot here in Buffalo during the summertime and we don’t have A/C, meaning that our eats have been of the cold variety to beat the heat.
Our go-to: My/Mo Mochi Ice Cream!
These snacks are so much fun to pop out of the freezer and eat. They’re mess-free and tasty! My favorite flavor is Green Tea (there will never be a better flavor IMO) and Tyler’s is Sweet Mango.
You can also find these My/Mo Mochi Ice Cream flavors at your local retailer: Salted Caramel, Vanilla Bean, Mint Chocolate Chip, Ripe Strawberry, Cookies & Cream, and Double Chocolate.
We’ve even been known to bring a couple into the car to cool us down before the A/C kicks on 😉
