  • I dont think its wrong wanting to have time for yourself. Everyone needs time for themself. Just dont overdo it. (like leave your kids every night to go clubbing or something) Get a babysitter one night and go out with the girls or go have a spa day.

  • everyone needs me time even if you have kids and probably more so if you have children. I know when my son was really young he was the only person i saw all day till his dad got home from work i was a stay at home mom. You need time to do something for yourself that makes you happy and relaxes you. it makes you a better parent i think.

  • My me time comes when everyone is in bed. With a deployed husband I am the only parent right now. Some days Id like more time but then I remember that my kids are only little once. My 'me' time can wait til they are grown and I have no problem with that.

  • You get me time sooner than you think. They grow up fast. Trust me when that time comes you want less me time and more time with your kids that are turning into adults.

  • Yes I want and deserve me time. I am going out with a friend tomorrow. I have had about 3 me times since my LO was born. She is 8 1/2 mos. It makes me a better less stressed mommy. I truly believe in me time. Go get some.

  • it is every mom's right to get time for them self's ... i always try at least once a week to get away.. and time for yourself doesn't have to cost much or take a lot of time ... for example grocery shopping .. go by ur self and enjoy the ride there, try not to stress about the cost, and just take time away from ur busy life to see the world around u

  • I didn't get "Me Time" really, until the youngest of my 3 kids was 10.
    unless you count grocery shopping alone or taking a shower by myself. and that didn;t happen much at all until the youngest of the 3 was 5 yrs old.
