If there's one thing every mother needs, it's a break! Between raising kids, finding time for your spouse and just dealing with every day life — gabbing with girlfriends is no longer something you take for granted. In fact, you live for it.
So grab a calendar and call the girls to coordinate a brunch, a dinner or weekend away. It gives busy moms something to look forward to when life gets monotonous or too hectic.
Let your husband and kids fend for themselves — the well deserved rest and relaxation will only make you a better mother.
