Mommy “Me Time”

There comes a time when your little one takes time with family or friends away from you. We all need some mommy “me time”. Being a mommy is hard work to do with no break. You love your babies, but are tired.

Whether this occurrence is for a few hours, overnight, or even a few days it is an event that will happen at some point in your child’s life.

Strong Feelings During That Time?

Life is more complex through a mother’s eyes when it comes to having a child.

Although a mother spends most of her hours tending, loving, and caring for her kid/kids, usually it includes spending less time on herself having “me time”.

I am one of those mothers because usually I spend most of the day and night trying to get everything cleaned up around the house and tending for my little one while also trying to create wonderful memories while he is still young.

Some days, it may just seem like there isn’t enough of you to go around.

If you are like me, some days I crave even just a little bit of “me time”.

Whatever the reason is for you wanting “me time”, I want you to know that it is completely normal.

Everyone deserves and needs time to theirselves to relax, pamper, wind down, or even just reclaim some sanity.

Watch some Netflix and take a bath or something.

The best “me time” comes when you have someone who wants to keep your kid no matter the length of time, but this also comes with more complex feelings.

All Mom’s Need Some “Me Time”

Every mother goes through the moment of craving “me time”.

If you fast forward to actually having the chance to have “me time”, you feel guilty for having it.

me time, mommy me time, mommy

I want you to know that this is normal. It is okay to feel this way no matter the reason.

My little one is the absolute best thing to ever happen to me. I love him more than anything, but a little “me time” is needed to keep a well-balanced mood.

A well-balanced mood is a great thing to have with kids.

I feel extremely guilty every time I want some time to myself.

I feel even more guilty when someone keeps my kid and I start having some time alone.

Here are a few tips when you feel guilty or overwhelmed:

  • Remember it is better for your child to come back home to a parent that has had some time to theirselves because it helps them have a better mood
  • Your child still loves you more than anything even though you need “me time”
  • Think about how much fun your little one is having with that person they are with, even though they love you they also love their grandparents and others

Sometimes a little mommy “me time” is needed even when you still have your kids at home.

Check out why I started this blog and see if it might be the right hobby for you too.

No matter what the reason is for your child going with someone else for any period of time, remember everyone needs a break.

Enjoy the time to yourself.

If you do you will have an even better time with your kid when they come home.
