I hear-tell of men having man caves. In fact – truth be told, the daddy person in our home does in fact have one of these highly sought after places. Complete with a sign over the (garage) door, testifying, “Man Cave!”
I have yet to personify this. Why don’t we hear about Mom Caves? Why aren’t there rustic signs that I can buy on Etsy promoting as such; in which I can proclaim my own space by hanging one on a door in our house. Or on a chain around my neck when the time requires.
Because my friends, there are times that require this and that is SO FINE. Moms need privacy too.
In my quest to create a little sanctuary – I have jinxed myself in that my favourite places to be at the moment aren’t in a dingy garage or somewhere in our basement – but out on our deck or in our perennial backyard oasis that I’ve worked so hard to create.
Doesn’t take long for me to get found and roused out of my coffee/wine drinking hiding spot. It’s not like I even want all that long away from my adorable off-spring. Like 10 minutes of uninterrupted, non mommy-yodle time would be heaven.
Is that too much to ask? I suppose I can’t blame them for wanting to be in on the outdoor garden action – but I’m not willing to give it up yet. The only time it’s not a fail is if I wake up to greet the sun to drink my coffee or wait until after bed-time when all the blood-sucker (mosquitos) are out. I guess men really have it figured out. Choose a place that no one else wants to hang out in and OWN IT.
Well noted, well played you guys.
