Last week, I used my second gift certificate to get a pedicure for my MTO. I bought beautiful red nail polish on my last grocery trip, arranged a playdate for my daughter, and, remembering how much I got from my massage and facial last week, was determined that nothing was going to stop me! But then, it happened.
My daughter BEGGED me to let her come along. And I was tempted. Those big brown eyes, pleading, and when’s the last time we had mommy/daughter time?
As much as I love my daughter and the quality time we share, I had to have my MTO by myself. There is no way I could have fallen asleep (which I did!) if she was there, and likely I would have rushed through the appointment instead of enjoying the massage chair and incredible pedicure I received. When I picked her up, I was balanced, happy & rested. And, I think, in the long run she benefited more from that than having her toes done.
What do you think?
