Do you need "ME" time?

I do desperately! I'm sick of caring for everyone, sick kids, cleaning, cooking, stressed to the max! All I hear all day is "Mommy, I need..." "Mommy, Mommy, Mommy"! What about me damn it? I am a SAHM, but I'm started to think that's why I get taken advantage of from everybody!
Thinking of booking a facial and pedicure. Letting everyone know and being like "see ya in a couple hours"!

  • HMM, I work 32 hours a week, I'm 9 mo pregnant, I have 4 kids ages six and under, I'm married, and I homeschool... #ELL YES I NEED SOME ME TIME!!! (but sometimes "me time" is just hiding in the bathroom with a good book and a box of oreos)

  • I get "me time" everyday...getting some right now while the kids are drinking smoothies and I'm on here.

    Usually my "me time" includes reading, gardening, cruising the net, long hot baths, watching movies after the kids are in bed, working out, etc.

  • You are so not alone...we just moved the girls into the same room so that I could have some space all to my self, no one else can have any of their stuff in my room...I know it sounds bad, but I told DH it was that or I get a super part time job. ;)

  • Ask grandma to watch them or get a baby sitter. Go out by yourself, or with friends, and cut loose!

    You have to do that, at least every once in a while, to keep your sanity!

  • Yes! I'm a SAHM too, but that doesnt mean I dont need me time! When you take the time to relax and take care of yourself you're in a better mood and less stressed out. I know that for me at least, that makes me a better mom. So go for it! Do something for you!

  • I would do it taking care of your family is work and if you feel burned the job you do for them will not be the best you can do!

  • Yes I need me time, but never get time alone. We do have date nights without the kids, but just having a few hours by myself is a concept that I cant grasp. LOL :-)
