With a baby and working full-time, I know it's hard for me to find Courtney-time, but when I do it is certainly cherished.

What is your favorite thing to do with your 'me' time?

Well, since I'm back to work, I can appreciate the use of both hands free for a solid 8 hours again. I didn't get that when I was on maternity leave! Multitasking with 1 hand never rang so true!!

But since I get an hour for lunch, I sit outside and read & that's my 1 hour of guaranteed "me time"..ahhh bliss. I look forward to it everyday b/c it's all mine

Other than that, I look forward to when I can run errands w/o the baby & not rushing, getting a mani/pedi & shopping.

What is this "me-time" you speak of? Once I got to run out and get a pedicure. Cherie now naps in 20-30 minute increments. Enough time to eat and do some laundry or dishes.

I multi-task: eating ice cream in a bubblebath!

I also enjoy my monthly haircut/mani appointment.

I still have 10 weeks mat leave left, so I get me time for 45 minutes in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon, then from 9.30 to when I go to bed. I would like Me time to be reading, internet or something relaxing, but it usually ends up being laundry, cleaning or dinner making!
