It’s interesting how we always have time to take care of every one else, but our needs often go unmet. Until…yeah, we fall apart. So, I have a remedy for this. It’s called the “mommy break”. Yes, I take a break from my lovely children and get a coffee, grab a bite to eat and see a movie, etc. I take a break and do something for me. This doesn’t make me a bad person, and it won’t make you a bad one either. In fact, it makes you better. Single parenting is tough. We need to decompress sometimes and find balance. Treat yourself to a mommy break SOON! Find a sitter you trust or trade off with a girlfriend whose kids you can watch while she takes a break. I promise it will be well worth it!
Take time for you. Schedule hectic? Do it anyway!
