Just curious as to what sort of things do u as a mom do for you. I often like to go for a walk by myself. And i lock myself in the bathroom with a good book n just read that is until im interrupted by screaming kids. Oh well its good while it lasts. So ladies what do u do?

I go on a 3 mile walk/jog, baby is with me but its as if he isn't.. He just takes everything in.
Also, as a daily reward for myself, if I pick up toys, have an empty sink and make sure laundry is done and house is spotless... While my ds is asleep I lay outside in the backyard for a good 1-2 hours. That's MY time! Of course when the baby is asleep I'm lucky enough to catch up on my shows with dh as he enjoys watching shows with me. That's our time :)

I read or take a hot bath.  My kids are older, 14 and 19, so it's easy for me.  But even when they were little I would always try and find time for myself.  Only way I kept my sanity :)

I find myself in my den a lot, I don't usually have to lock my self in there because there is no TV only books a love seat and a desk, and some deco, so DS and even DH rarely go in there to bug me.

@ night after the kids are asleep (they are 28 months so they are usually asleep by 8:30) I like to take a nice hot shower, read, go on my iPad or catch up on some of my favorite shows I DVRed. On Saturdays I go for a mani/pedi
