When the kids are away, mama will…?

July 20, 2014




a) Drink profusely

b) Order takeaway

c) Binge watch Netflix (watch “The Heat” with Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock, especially after drinking, you will pee yourself laughing)

d) Go on some long Mountain Bike rides

e) Hit the spa

f) All of the above

One thing that I definitely appreciate soooooo much more now that I have kids is the pure bliss of having alone time – ideally more than just a few stolen minutes here and there, or after the kids have gone to bed – but a day or two of solid ME time.

I mean there really is something to the saying “you don’t know what you’ve got, til it’s gone……” and me time has been few and far between these past 8 years for sure.

Anyways, what makes this time so much sweeter is knowing that this me time is fleeting, that I have a mere 48 hours to do whatever I want, whenever I want and with whoever I want. I don’t have to wipe bums, or make waffles at the crack of dawn. I don’t have to plan and entertain and distract. It is 48 hours of time off from being mom, and just being Christine again.

    I’m with you! Mine will be home any minute. I needed the time to work but did get a good workout in and it’s nice to take a break and eat lunch on the couch watching tv. 🙂
