Everyone knows that there’s no one who needs pampering as much as a new mother does. Thankfully, I have an incredibly sweet husband who helps all the time, but still, being a mom is hard work. Justin wanted me to feel relaxed and happy on our vacation, so he would occasionally take Elijah for walks under the palm trees while I lay on the beach enjoying the sun and the beautiful view. We enjoyed sitting in a similar spot everyday so the staff there got quite used to seeing us. They always brought me the Coke Zero that said “Mommy” on it. Very cute! They would rearrange the beach chairs and umbrellas so that Elijah always had a perfectly shaded spot in which he could take his afternoon nap.
Along the beach were a few local ladies who walked by with price lists displaying the pampering services that they provide. While you are lying in this paradise setting, you can have your nails painted, your feet scrubbed, or enjoy a massage. In fact, the list of services that they provided was quite lengthy. One day, before Justin and Elijah set off on a walk along the beach, I called one of these ladies over to give me a foot and leg massage. At the same time, my sweet husband ordered me a cocktail, then kissed me goodbye, and told me to have a nice pamper session.
