When do you make time?
Good morning mamas!
i feel like my children are a bit older than perhaps most in this community...but “me time” is something I really struggled with. I didn’t think I needed it. I was wrong!
Now that i have it, my mental and physical state is so much stronger. Parenthood is a tremendous undertaking, we deserve to be at our best trying to get through it!
so...what do you do to keep yourself balanced?
I have introduced independent play time. My children are 2 and 4 so it’s a different ballgame than a newborn. But - they know the rules. After dinner, they are to play independently, (defined as not reliant on a parent) until im able to get the kitchen clean. I know cleaning the kitchen doesn’t sound like me time...but not having to go back to a dirty kitchen after they go to bed makes all the difference!
