What is mommy time for me? It can be the luxury of going thru Starbucks drive thru alone, or maybe if I am really lucky, totally splurging and going to the SPA!
It sounds crazy, but sometimes you just need to get those small amounts of time into yourself. I consider getting my hair or nails done my time. It's that alone time when you get to talk to an adult (while not having to referee a playdate.)
Yes, I am one of those annoying moms that talk about my kids to my hairdresser and nail tech. They know Riley and Emilyns cute quirks, and my "mommy melt down moments!" Guess what, if you do it to, GOOD FOR YOU!
It's easy to go to that "I am the only one" place in your head. The place where you are completely convinced you are failing, no one understands you, and you are for sure screwing up your kids in some way or another, but trust me, you are not alone!
I head to Sephora sometimes and spend 1/2 an hour snooping around. It's a mental release and important to do. Do not feel bad if your not spending time with your kids or significant other, working out, cleaning or folding your never ending mound of laundry. Take time, talk, tell all your guilty mommy moments of the month and know you are completely normal, well in mommy terms ;)
What do you want to hear and talk about? Let me know! I always love hearing from you.
Lots of Love,
