Get away

Hot bath, candles & music when kids r in bed. Lol!!!

Long. Hot. Bath.

I get all the toys out of the bathtub, light some candles, grab a book and just soak for as long as possible. I feel so recharged when I'm done. If I didn't have those moments, I don't know what I'd do!

Other Ways for Mommy Time

Spending time with friends, especially those who can make you laugh and share stories of moms' issues. I also think getting involved with a religious group helps...builds camaraderie, fellowship and you share common beliefs and values with one another.

My 'Me-Time' is My Husband's Favourite

The first time my husband told me to go out without him and the kids, I was very surprised. How can a wife and a mother leave her family at home and go out alone? My perception completely changed after that first 'Me-Time'.. After my first 'Me-Time' -which I enjoyed very much-, I always discuss with my husband when I should have my next 'Me-Time' and what I should do. He will come up with all kinds of ideas from shopping, beauty treatments, etc. Later, I also found out that my husband loves my 'Me-Time' because he can have the kids without my 'interference'.. so, it is really the best time for everyone.. ;-) I have my 'Me-Time' about once a month with a different thing to do each time, but my favorite is the beauty treatment. I find these treatments very relaxing and refreshing. The other type of 'Me-Time' I enjoy a lot are weekend lunch and shopping with my sisters.
