Winter is the longest season . . . for moms, at least. We haven't even recovered from the crazy, stressful holiday season when we realize that we're stuck inside for at least the next two months (more like three and a half if you live in the Midwest, like me) and our kids are looking to us for entertainment. While I still subscribe to a lazy mom's list of kid-friendly Winter activities (movies and play dates at other peoples' houses are my favorites), I have added another seasonal to-do list to my life, and it has nothing at all to do with my children.
Moms don't just want the occasional break during the harsh Winter months; they absolutely deserve them, and often. If you want to start Spring with your sanity intact, here are six things you need to add to your schedule before the first flower blooms. From restorative experiences to the occasional free-for-all that will be worth the next morning's headache, these activities are sure to get you through Winter with a smile on your face.
