I am blessed with an amazing husband and two awesome kids. But there are days I feel like I just don’t like them. I mean, I love them more than my life, but some days liking them isn’t as easy.
Am I the only one who feels like this?
I don’t think I am.
Since we travel on the road together for my husband’s job, our time spent together is 24/7 most of the year. It is essential for me to set aside a bit of time each day that is just mine. Mommy Time I like to call it.
When do you take advantage of Mommy Time?
Is it before the kids get up? My son wakes up at 6 am every day. EVERY DAY. So mommy time does not happen here in the morning.
Is your Mommy Time during naptime? Sometimes, I do take advantage of nap time. But, since my oldest is no longer taking naps, I don’t get Mommy Time during nap time very often.
Or maybe, like me, Mommy Time is after the kids go to bed? I am thankful that though my Little Man gets up at 6 am each day, he does go to bed at 7 pm each night and my Princess goes soon after that.
It is at night that I carve out a bit of time for me. I like to relax, watch TV, catch up on my blog, and have a nice snack like Quaker® Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Quaker® Chocolate Chip Cookies are tasty fuel to help get you going. Made with whole grain Quaker oats, Quaker® Chocolate Chip Cookies have the power of Quaker in a delicious cookie.
That little bit of me time allows me to make it through some rough days as a stay at home parent.
How do you carve out time for yourself?
Quaker® Chocolate Chip Cookies allow me to be indulgent while still providing the power of Quaker® oats to fuel me for whatever the rest of the day might hold.
