Finding Time for Me

Now that I’m a mother of 2, I rarely get any time to myself. Don’t get me wrong, I love my kids and adore them, but you know, I don’t really have any “me” time anymore. Grady’s only 2 and Haley is just 4 months, so they take up the majority of my time. I don’t even get to use the bathroom by myself, LOL! My nails are never painted anymore, and (gasp) I don’t shower everyday.

When I’m not taking care of them, I’m keeping my house together and trying to have some quality time with Eric. That doesn’t leave much free time, especially since I love my blog, too, and try to spend time on that everyday as well.

Luckily, Haley still nurses pretty frequently, and I get most of my blogging done while she’s eating. Multi-tasking at it’s best! When I’m all caught up on blog stuff – which doesn’t happen very often, I’ll often find some online games to play to clear my mind , refresh, and to have a little fun, too. I haven’t gotten in to all the Facebook games people play because I find them annoying when they show up in my newsfeed, but I recently stumbled across Cheekybingo.com and it’s pretty cool. Bingo just for women. Not that men really play bingo anyway, he-he. It’s just that it seems geared to the SAHM. If you click over and take a peek, you’ll see their logo of a woman eating bon bons, totally reminds me of Married with Children. Ha. Cracks me up.

Do you play games? I’ll definitely be finding time for me to play a few games. Bingo is fun and sort of addicting!

  1. Finding time for yourself when you’re a mom is so difficult. I have a 3 year old, a 19 month old, and another baby due in Feb. As moms, we give a lot of ourselves to our kids and significant others all day long. I work 2 days outside of the home too so I am also giving at work. Toward the end of the week, I find myself losing patience and becoming much more frustrated than usual. During this time, I tell my husband that I need a time out. What is my time out? A long (10 min) shower. It helps, but it is definitely not enough. I don’t know how to find time. Maybe it should be a few minutes here and there. Not sure. I cannot imagine not having my husband though. How do single moms and dads do it?
