4. Take Care of Yourself

It's not all about the baby; mom needs to take care of herself too. If you want to be a good mom and be there for your kids, it sometimes means having to take a little bit of time away from them to take care of you. It doesn't have to be anything big, like a spa day, but it has to be something just for you. So many moms don't even take a shower most days because they don't have time, energy or motivation. So set aside some time each day to just take the shower!
