Have you ever had one of those days? Has getting out of bed ever been like trying to budge a boulder? Has it ever taken everything you’ve got to get through the day? Of course you have, you are a parent! On those particularly difficult days, I find myself needing to take a break from routine, and do something that feels good. It may be a little ritual that you take a few minutes for, such as going outside for some fresh air and sun, staring out the window and nibbling on a chocolate, or relaxing in an oversized chair with throw and a cup of hot apple cider. (Those are some of my favorite things!) It may be something that takes more time such as, “Hey kids, let’s go to the park and throw the Frisbee!” or “Honey, let's go out tonight, just you and me!” It is not only kids that need that kind of spontaneous fun. Although we are grown ups, we need that break, that bit of fun to keep us young and to forget about the responsibilities of life for a few moments. How do you take 5?
All I can say is yum. Making me hungry for cookies!
when you find something that works like a charm, can you let me know – i’ve been asking myself this same question. so far, with a 4.5 month old, going for long strolls is about as me-time as it gets.
I get to the restroom and play a a little on my phone.
