Me time 

I love getting away, having time to be on my own. 

In the last almost 2 years life has become a whirlwind like any first time parents know. I love knowing that my beautiful daughter is being cared for by her doting father and that there is nothing at all for me to worry about there. 

Where we live we don’t have family we can call on to help. When we get sick we just have to truck on thru it. We don’t get date nights, except for those when our little darling is tucked up in bed at 7pm and we get take out and watch a movie. I love those nights. 

When family come to visit the offer to babysit and we gladly take them up on their offer. There might be 3 visits a year. 

I’m not complaining, I’m setting the scene. 

So when my husband and I get weekends away even separately we relish in the freedom. Freedom to sleep in, take our time to get ready, go to not so kid friendly restaurants and enjoy quality time with our friends. 

When people ask if I’m missing my daughter it’s difficult to explain without it sounding like I’m wanting a pity party. Sure I miss seeing her gorgeous little face, but it’s 48 hours I have to enjoy some ‘me time’ and I know I’m very fortunate to be able to get it. So every moment is precious, I know soon enough I’ll be elbows deep in my role as working mother so for now it’s just about being in the moment.

    After the Lord, your spouse is to come first in your life. There is ABSOLUTELY nothing wrong with enjoying and indulging in special time with him. It is very healthy, and, no, you don’t HAVE to miss your little one during those precious times! I think it is great that you enjoy guilt-free quality time with him. I believe one of the best gifts you can give your child is the knowledge that you love his or her daddy. So important! =] Good post!

    Amen. We are better mothers (and fathers) when we take time to be our own people and recharge our batteries. My husband and I took a weekend trip to reconnect when our twins were 2 and several acquaintances and co-workers made critical comments about us leaving our children overnight…argh…

      That’s ridiculous! It’s not like your babies were 2 weeks old…. 😳 some people eh *shakes head*
      The thing about being a good parent is knowing when we need that “time-out” and taking it before we completely loose our minds.
