  • I do. That is why I put my boys at the same time everynight, too give myself a little unwhine time. For me it doesn't always help, but I do get that way. :o)

  • yes all the time, i now take time for myself just an hour once a week and i walk around the park.its a couple of acres and has lots of trees and a duck pond and man made water fall, its sooo beautiful and tranquil. i enjoy the peace and quiet, i can actually hear my thoughts and get me back to being me.

  • Sometimes you get what you ask for just not when you ask it. Now I'm divorced and kids are grown and gone. I'm alone and sometimes it's not as great as it's cracked up to be

  • Absolutely! You have to take time for yourself. You have to maintain your stress level and take care of yourself otherwise no one in the house will be happy. It's completely normal and you shouldn't feel bad about it!

  • Oh yes I always need just some quiet time, I am a better Mom after I get some alone time. Between work and work around the house I just need a breather.

  • Oh yeah! I love my son, but I also love bedtime! 8pm every night he is asleep! Luckily my SO is in a band that practices at night, so 2-3 nights a week I have the house to myself for a couple hours. It is only natural to want to be alone with your thoughts sometimes. If nothing else, you could put the kids to bed and go soak in the tub for an hour. Burn some candles, play some music, read a book, whatever you like.
