One thing moms rarely think of is themselves. We are constantly giving, giving, giving, and seldom taking. That’s why when something comes up that is solely about YOU, you tend to get hit with some mom guilt. But because you do SO much all day, every day, one of the things you probably need is a mom’s getaway weekend! Guilt-free!
A mom’s getaway weekend is so important because it gives you a much-needed perspective, some time to focus on yourself and relax. It also eliminates your stress and in turn, makes you a happy, better mom!
What is a mom’s getaway weekend?
A mom’s getaway weekend is just that- a weekend away. It can be one night, two nights or as long as you like! It can be with your closest girlfriend or mom tribe. It can be somewhere that’s 10 miles from your home or 100 miles away. It can be somewhere that you drive to or fly to.
A mom’s getaway weekend is time FOR you, ABOUT you, with people you love, care about, trust, and who understand you.

The Importance of a Mom’s Getaway Weekend
You get perspective
One thing I know about being a mom is that you can constantly get way too close to situations and tend to lose perspective. Because you are the one that deals with the day to day situations, things can become really complicated and messy. Sometimes you get so caught up in life that you get stumped on making a decision, or you can’t fully commit to doing one thing at a time because you’re so busy.
One of the things that help me get perspective is to go away. Whether I take the day to get away or you plan a mom’s getaway weekend.
A mom’s getaway weekend can help you put things in perspective. It can give you another viewpoint on things and remove you from the situation so you can see things clearly.
You get a chance to miss your children
I know this sounds silly but since you are constantly with your family and children you rarely “miss” them. Or at least miss them enough to realllyyyy miss them. When you take a mom’s getaway weekend, you actually MISS your kids! You tend to forget about the hard days, fussy times, attitudes, and meltdowns and just think of your baby in the best possible light.
It’s one of the best and worst feelings in the world tied up into one!
Your spouse gets time with kids
When you give yourself a mom’s getaway weekend, you’re also giving your spouse an opportunity to spend quality time with the kids.
I know my husband sometimes asks me if he can play with our daughter in the room while I am in the living room because he says my daughter gives him no attention when I’m around.
Giving your spouse a chance to bond with your children and connect with them on a deep level is so important. Especially if you are a stay at home mom and home with the kids all day while your husband is working.
Giving your spouse quality time with the kids while you are away is something that is priceless! So, while you are away relaxing, your spouse is taking advantage of his precious time with the kiddies!
You need space
Another super important reason to have a mom getaway weekend is to give yourself some space. Sometimes you just need SPACE.
You need a second alone to breathe.
You need some time to paint your nails without knowing that in 3 minutes they will be smudged.
You need some time to sit outside and enjoy the weather without worrying about what your kids are wearing.
You need some time to let loose and enjoy a good meal without your baby throwing food on the floor.
— You need time for YOU!
Relaxation & Rejuvenation
I love mom getaway weekend’s because it gives me time to relax and get rejuvenated. It’s so important to recharge your batteries and get re-energized. It not only makes you a better person but a better mom and wife.
Being relaxed also help you with clearing your head. Which can be SUPER helpful if you need some inspiration or new ideas about something. Maybe you want to redecorate the house or start a new project. Or maybe you’re a work at home mom and need new work ideas and to brainstorm! A mom’s getaway weekend is the perfect time to do this!
Focus on yourself
You are a mom. You are a wife. You are a superhero. You are a chauffeur. You are a milk machine. You are a caregiver. You are a boss. You are SO much! Most of your day is focused on other people. But going on a mom getaway weekend is time to focus on YOU!
What do you want to do? What do you want to eat? What do you want to watch? What do you want to wear? It’s all about YOU! As a mom, you need time to focus on yourself. You need to make yourself feel good!
You spend time with great friends!
The great thing about a mom getaway weekend is that you can go alone, or you can get together some friends and get away together! My first mom getaway weekend was with a best friend of mine who wasn’t even a mom but just an amazing friend. We laughed, shared inside jokes, relaxed, and stuffed your face with delicious food!
So, there you have it! Here are 7 really awesome, super convincing reasons why you need a mom’s getaway weekend. Remember, getting away is so important because it gives you time to focus on yourself, get some perspective and gives your spouse time to have some quality time with the kids.
Giving yourself some time away is nothing to feel guilty about because when you better yourself, you are becoming a better mom and wife. Self-care always tends to have a domino effect in the best possible ways!
