Hey everyone, happy Tuesday 😃
I know some of you read the title and thought, “wait, what!? A time out for Mom.” Well just wait one second and let me explain.
No, I am not talking about an actual time out. You know the ones where we would have to go and stand in a corner and reflect on what got us there in the first place. I’m talking about taking a break from being a Mom and clearing our mind. No, this break doesn’t need to be a full day, just enough time away from the kids where you can think about something other then being a mom.
My son is one and I love him dearly. I am a stay at home Mom so I am with him 24/7. Some days I just need time to myself. I just need a “time out” to refocus and gather myself. These “time outs” can be as small as going on the patio for a cup of coffee. Or going into another room to watch my favorite show without being disrupted by my little one.
There is nothing wrong with “time outs”. They are very much needed, if you ask me. Doing things away from your children and being a parent, helps to create balance in your life. It took me awhile to get to the point where I was comfortable with telling my husband that I need a little break. He always encourages me to take them.
I want all the moms out there to know them at there is absolutely nothing with doing something for yourself without feeling guilty. I want us all to take this breaks and enjoy them. Just think about it, when we return we will be refreshed and ready to play! 😄
Please comment below and let me know how you like to spend your “time outs” away from the kids 😊
