Do you need time away?


Do you ever feel like you need some me time away from your LO? I am not talking about any extended time away but maybe an hour or two to do something for yourself like get your hair done, catch up on some reading or something like that.

absolutely! I get my "me time" after 7 when LO goes to bed. Its tough in the beginning to get time to yourself but as your LO gets older it will get easier hun. x

I totally agree and I think its very important but I recently met a mom who tried to make me feel guilty for wanting some me time.

Well we cannot all be perfect.

I think we all run into people like that, just nod and smile and in your head (very important part! hehe) tell them to shove it up their perfect a$$.

Yes!
Thankfully I work, so I get quite a bit of time away, but I still feel like I need more time away to have 'me' time. Sometimes I'll go get a pedicure, get my hair done, go to the gym or just relax while someone watches Kenneth for an hour or two. It's nice to have some 'me' time without having to worry about Kenny!

As much as I love my LO...i'd go NUTS if I didn't have my mum to take him so that I can have some me time, or me and OH can have some us time! My mum has him Friday to Saturday so we can go out, have a few drinks etc without having to worry. Then the next day we have a lie in (which after waking at 6am to a hungry screaming baby every morning is BLISS) before driving to pick LO up again.
I'm very greatful and really couldn't care less if i'm judged for enjoying this time away from LO!

I work full time, but I still need some me time. My OH and I both take 1-2 evenings a week and go off on our own while the other watches Gabriel. I think it's good to take time away from him, being a mom is only one part of who I am.
