Do you take more time out for yourself now that you are older?
Alone time for... showering, bathing, doing your nails, your hair? (Personal things)

I sure do....the older my kids have gotten the more time I spend on ME!
But, even when my kids were little I always made sure I felt good about my apperance...I think that is very important!

Heck no! I wish I could, though. But it's a little hard with 4 kids running around all day, 2 of which do not go to school yet. I do spend more time for myself after they go to bed at night. If my house doesn't look picture perfect, so be it. The essentials get done, then it's "me time".

Not so much b/c I'm older. I have always made time for myself, I pretty selfish, but that took a backseat when dd was born of course. Now that she is 3 and playing more outside with dh, I do get more me time to relax after work. I stay up way too late b/c I love the quiet time after dd goes to bed, which isn't until clost to 9pm b/c it's soo light out soo late.

LOL. No! I actually spend a lot less time on me than I did when I was younger. But, we didn't start our family until later (I was 31 when ds was born).

I've actually been trying to be better about this lately because I don't want to feel like a frumpy old mom all the time!

Yes!!!
Every Friday night is "ladies night"! Myself and three of my friends get together every Friday night and play cards or go bowling, out to dinner, to a movie, etc.
Also, one weekend a month, my parents take our daughter with them. This gives my husband and I time to be alone, do things with friends or take little trips.
I am thankful!!

No I have not been able to take more time out for me yet. Maybe when the boys are a little older but not yet...
