Mommy Me Time

Day 2

For so much of my life, I have felt guilty for taking time for me, to do the things that I want to do for me. This guilt intensified when I became a mom, feeling as though I needed to always drop everything for my girls.

Tonight, sitting in the car while Sophia danced and Izzie tumbled, I took time for me. And for once, I didn’t feel guilty about it. I enjoyed time to work in my planner, writing things down and feeling a bit more organized all while listening to a book.

The sun began to set, and yet, I continued to relax. I did have to turn the car on as the sunshine had provided warmth, but I loved the time that I had for me. It was delightful to be alone with my thoughts…to plan, to write, to just be. So grateful for some mommy me time!

  4. Always take some time for yourself. My children are grown. It went by quickly but much happier since I was more at peace. Your post speaks a lot of truth: Moms always feel guilty. Glad you were able to take your time!

  5. Glad you found some much-needed time for yourself. I did the same last night… aka I took a two-hour nap once the boys were both in bed. Then had to get back up to post my blog for the day! hahaha
