“Mommy Time” recharging my battery

Ahhh .. the weekend… for most it’s a time to relax… for moms well you see we don’t exactly get to relax. I don’t even think I know how to relax anymore. I remember my husband sent me to the salt caves to detox and I had to sit in a room quietly for an hour with no electronics and relax… at first I thought yes this is what I need! After 15 minutes I wanted to jump out a window… well there were no windows but you get my point right?!?! I forgot how to relax. I’m in charge of little lives now… taking care of a household… keeping my hubby happy… relax isn’t in my vocabulary! My weekends are when I have my husband to help out and we can play man on man defense with our two crazy kids! Weekends are when we run errands as a family. I love this because it’s not just me lugging my 9 month old’s car seat and my gosh she is heavy now, and chasing my toddler around. I have my husbands help and I am so happy to be spending time with him. During the week he is so busy with work and by the time his day ends it’s dinner and bed time routine. And let me just say after a crazy Monday – Friday… I cannot wait for bed time!!!!! There are those special weekend moments though, when my kids are napping, or playing quietly, and my husband is watching golf.. and he says to me “honey why don’t you go out for a little while and take some time for yourself”. My eyes light up… I have that moment of feeling bad to leave my family, but I know I need it to recharge my mommy battery and clear my mind. Sometimes I go to Starbucks, other times to TJ Maxx. I’m not gone long maybe 30 minutes or an hour. It’s just a few minutes alone in my car of quiet time… or blasting my XM radio and singing at the top of my lungs to anything that isn’t on the Disney channel or the Frozen soundtrack! I think moms need these few minutes to themselves. We come home happier, smiling, and much less stressed then when we left the house. Today this is just what I needed…. a little mommy me time. Now I am ready to take on Monday and my two crazy girls. 😂
