Vlogger Kristina Kuzmic really has her priorities straight in a new video about the importance of sanity-saving me-time for moms.
YouTuber Kristina Kuzmic has her priorities straight. And giving herself a much-needed time out is smack at the top of the list.
“It’s been a long day, my kids are finally in bed, and I am supposed to be cleaning my house right now,” the mom-of-three tells us from inside a bathtub filled with bubbles as she laughs hysterically and then takes a sip from a nice big glass of red wine. “Yeah, that’s not gonna happen because… priorities.”
Ok, for the record, this chick is totally my spirit animal! How revolutionary is the fact that she is A-OK with leaving a washer filled with wet clothes and a sink full of dirty dishes, while she luxuriates in a bubble bath and eats chocolate doughnuts with a fork?
“See here’s the thing,” she explains. “In the long run, years from now, will it really matter if all the toys were picked up? Or the dishes washed after every single meal? Nope. But in the long run you know what will matter? My sanity.”
So. True! And a great reminder that we all need to stop feeling guilty about taking some well-deserved “me” time at the end of the day. After all, like Kuzmic says, kids benefit much more from having a relaxed, (semi-)calm mama who’s in a good mood, than they will from having a perfectly clean house.
