You Know You NEED Mommy Time When…

Posted by

  1. You notice that you are wearing the same clothes every day for a week.
  2. The days of the week seem to blend together and you can’t remember what day it is.
  3. Every day is a bad hair day.
  4. You walk out the door with your winter coat on and ask yourself, “When did spring arrive?”
  5. A full pot of coffee is brewed in the morning. You get one sip. By the time you get back to your coffee it is late, the kids are in bed and you are left with a full pot of cold coffee.
  6. You picked up the same toys at least a dozen times in one day.
  7. It is 5pm and you are still in your pajamas.
  8. You are surrounded by this hideous odor and wonder where it is coming from before realizing that it is you.
  9. Eating makes your teeth and gums ache.
  10. You’ve swept the floor, changed two dirty diapers, picked up toys, made four beds, put a load of laundry in, did the dishes, wiped three runny noses, and refereed five fights all before noon.

I think I need some “Mommy Time.”

How about you?

  1. LOL! 😀 Thanks for taking me back in time to when my kids were younger! 😀 I was seriously… back in Moscow, going to school, running a daycare, and going to school part time!

    I hope you have a wonderful RELAXING "mommy time" tonight. 😉

  2. Oh Mommy time!! the elusive recharge! I'm all excited when I can get the shower to myself these days!! I hope you get some Mommy time, because this post is so true! Been there, done that.

  3. I actually talk about how important this is in my book. It is ESSENTIAL for mental and physical health of the mom, as well as the child since the moms mental health directly affects the child whether the mom knows it or not. This is a WONDERFUL post Cascia!
