Motherhood is not glamourous, or a walk in the park. It is stressful, trying, and of course extremely rewarding. But sometimes we really need time to ourself.
I have noticed that the moms who don’t routinely take time for themselves, like myself, often find themselves on the verge of a white padded room with a serious loss of sanity!
I started really thinking about all the little ways, and things I want to do just to get away for a couple hours and really have some me time.
I put together a list of great things moms can do to unwind, and take back their lives for a little while, while the kids hang with someone else. Because a couple hours isn’t going to kill them, or you!
Remember, to be the best mom you can be, you need time to yourself… that is one of my keys to parenting, as well as many other moms.
