If any of your hobbies are languishing, it isÂ time to rev them back up again. You’ll be so glad you did.
I have loved taking pottery classes as a new mom but don’t have any pictures because my hands were too covered in goo! We know anotherÂ rookie mom who took a painting class while her husband put the baby to bed during cry-it-out sleep training. Now, that’s money well spent!
StefaniaÂ (above) is about to take Lee Pazmino’s Hip-Hop class at Uforia Studios in Palo Alto above. Can you find a weekly class (art, wine appreciation, photography, cooking, dance, Italian lessons) to get your creative juices flowing again? Committing to our own fun and enrichment can easily fall to the bottom of the to-do list; having a class that you’ve paid for can bump it back to the top.
What lessons areÂ you not takingÂ that you’d like to start?Â
Inspired by an activity in The Rookie Mom’s Handbook: 250 Activities to Do With (or Without!) Your Baby (on kindle).
