If there’s one thing that almost every mom has in common, it’s being busy! From cooking and cleaning to getting kids to extra-curricular activities to helping out at school or in the community, there’s always something to fill a mom’s plate! In our home, I’m out of bed at six in the morning to pack school lunches and make breakfast for my boys. We leave the house at seven to drive to the school bus stop and when I get home at eight, I start work.
Evenings include coaching my youngest son’s soccer team two nights every week, taking my oldest son to baseball three nights a week and still fitting in time to help both boys with homework and cook supper for the family. Needless to say, I’m ready for some relaxation when the boys are finally tucked into bed! And in my opinion, there’s no better evening indulgence than a few Twistos Baked Snack Crackers. With two new light and crunchy flavours now available, Garden Dill & Cream Cheese and Toasted Garlic & Rosemary, they’re the perfect treat for busy moms. Asiago has always been my favourite flavour, but the new dill variety changed that in one bite!
But as busy as my days are with my two boys, it’s nothing compared to Canadian mom Monique’s lifestyle! With three children, 15 extracurricular activities on the calendar each week and supporting the charity she founded dedicated to providing backpacks with school supplies for underprivileged kids, this woman is the epitome of busy.
That’s why Twistos Canada decided to surprise this worthy mom just in time for Mother’s Day by giving her a space where she could relax and unwind when she finally got a few minutes to herself. The company gave Monique her very own “Mom Cave” makeover…and even captured the entire event on video! Take a look at the makeover and the big reveal below. It may just inspire you to create your own special space for relaxing at the end of a busy day!
Because every Mom is a supermom in some way, I’ve partnered with Twistos Canada to offer a very special giveaway! One lucky Mommy Kat and Kids reader is going to win a prize pack of Twistos Baked Snack Crackers and a $100 Urban Barn gift card to help you create your own ideal Mom Cave! To enter to win, just watch Monique’s Mom Cave Makeover video and leave a blog comment about your favourite part.
While our little townhouse doesn’t have room for me to create an indoor space of my own, I actually prefer being outdoors anyways. So I took some inspiration from this video and created my own backyard Mom Cave! By adding an outdoor pillow to our rustic wood bench, a small table to hold my cup of coffee (or glass of wine) and a colourful wind chime, I was able to create the perfect spot for unwinding after a busy day. With a bowl of the new Garden Dill & Cream Cheese Twistos Baked Snack Crackers beside me, my Mom Cave is pure paradise!
This Mother’s Day, make sure to reward yourself for all you do by taking some time to relax in your own favourite space. And if it’s been awhile since you refreshed the look of that cozy reading corner or sunny kitchen nook that you love, why not treat it to a little upgrade with a few fun new accessories? Then snack on your favourite flavour of Twistos Snack Crackers while you reflect on all you’ve accomplished in the day. After all, us moms sometimes need to take a little time to remind ourselves just how super we are!
