    Pathetic, but awesome - Mommy Treat

    Like the headline says, I admit this is kind of pathetic, but also sort of awesome, for me anyway.

    I've noticed a few local malls (I've seen them at Arsenal in Watertown and Chestnut Hill in Newton, maybe others) have walk in massage storefronts.  You can get a 15 minute massage for $15.

    I love that I don't need an appointment, and if I can get the LO to behave/sleep I don't have the hassle or expense of scheduling a sitter.  It's not really expensive, but it still soothes my muscles when they're  sore from holding sick kids, or stress.  You can even go with a friend and switch off so someone is minding the kids.

    It's not a full on spa-like experience, you won't necessarily feel pampered or zen, but it's amazing what just minutes will do.

    I know it's sort of silly, but I figured it's worth mentioning in case there's other mothers out there who deserve a treat (all of you).

    Because 15 minutes of something nice feels like a big treat.  That's just a pathetically low standard.  But with no time (or budget) for a fabulous caribean vacation, I'll take it!

    I've seen that place at the Arsenal. I assumed it was a front for hand jobs.

    It totally made my day that the boards allow "hand job" but don't allow p00p.
