You know you’re a mom when a 15 minute shower is a luxury. When I was single, I used to just STAY in the bathroom and do my business because well there’s no toddler banging on your door demanding that you need to be in his playroom right then and there or a baby who you feel that as soon as you go to the bathroom will cry and ask for milk. There is something about going to the bathroom that sets off alarms in kid’s heads that signals them that they want mommy NOWNOWNOW! hahaha 😀 My all time favorite though is when I have to bargain with David that I need to be in the bathroom because I have to shower and that No, he can’t stay and wait for me in the toilet. I do love it when I step out of the bathroom and David says “Did you use the pink shampoo? Your hair smells good!” Naks thanks anak!
So I get my “me time” when both kids are asleep and the hubby is busy playing NBA2k13. I decompress inside the bathroom. I laze around and take a few extra minutes under a warm shower. I sometimes light a candle but the ocean scented candle that I bought years back has lost its smell. I sometimes light an incense stick just so I could get into a spa frame of mind. I relax and I start zoning out. Oh yes, life’s little pleasures.
So imagine my glee when Glade sent me this:
You know you’re a mom when you get excited over home scents. I was really REALLY excited, I smelled the stuff and I was happy. These little packets last 60 days each! I computed and there’s half-a-year’s worth of sweet scents in that basket. Glade also sent some spa essentials like candles, a cd with spa music and massage oils.
True enough the scents were sensational, I love the lavender and morning freshness scents. They’re fresh and soothing and relaxing. I have yet to try the other scents pa but I have time.
It’s lovely walking into a bathroom that smells of morning dew. Stealing some me time and having that 15 minutes all to myself is a luxury nowadays so I’m so happy that my quick showers have at least become a little bit more relaxing 🙂
If you want to try out Glade Sensations, they’re now available at all leading supermarkets. The holder is Php108 pesos and it comes with a free refill (the holder has a scratch and sniff sticker!!) . Refills cost Php80 and last for 60 days. Aside from Lavender and Morning Freshness, the refills also come in Lemon, Ocean Escape, Jasmine and I Love You.
Thank you Glade for sponsoring this post!
