Ingredients for dinner...$12.00
Favorite bottle of wine...$20.00
Enjoying your first glass of your favorite wine that you haven't had in a year, while cooking dinner, and DH takes care of the kids for the rest of the night so you can relax... PRICELESS!!
Taking time out for yourself is very important these days.... what have you done for YOURSELF lately?
That sounds amazing I'm glad you get to enjoy yourself with some wine!
My in laws are in town from France so I get home cooked delectable dishes daily and a mother in law that loved to take care of the baby so that leaves me free to shower and get somewhat dolled up which is a luxury these days.
In a few weeks I'm taking DHs credit card to buy some leather boots for fall and some new clothes. After all I carried the baby 9 months, pushed the baby out and now feeding him every 2-3 hours from the boob so it's the least he can do.
Dh let's me take a long bath and read a book most nights while he watches the kids. Although I do usually go ahead and take Atlas in there with me in his vibrating bouncer seat, I just like having him with me.
I had a pumpkin beer last night (in between feedings of course) while DH cooked dinner and it was oh so yummy!
As far as time for myself, not so much. DH is gone 9am-7:30pm on the weekdays and we have been having company on the weekends. More visitors this weekend too. He does the best he can, gets up with DS1 so I can sleep a little longer with the baby, etc. But true "me" time will probably not happen for months.
