  • I put my son in daycare every monday and friday so I can have me time. It makes me a better mother and more intuned with my myself and my feelings.

  • I always make sure I have "me" time. Being a loner by nature, I would go absolutely berserk if I didn't. My children know how to entertain themselves for an hour or two. I also make sure they go to bed at a decent hour so that I can have a little time to finish up chores and relax at night. I carve out time for exercise and did so even before they were old enough for school. They can read in their rooms or watch a short DVD while I work out. I make lots of sacrifices for my kids but I will not let them completely dominate every single aspect of my life. I think it's unhealthy for both children and parents to do so.

  • I have ME time everyday while others sleep I go to the gym and do a heavy work out, it keeps me fit and sane to deal with my mom and my sick brother.
