After the kids are all in bed, I take a hot bath in the jacuzzi tub. Sometimes I read a magazine or surf on my phone, sometimes I listen to music, and other times I just sit in the quiet with the lights off. My bath is my "me" time, and I enjoy every minute, and it helps me calm down after a hectic day.
Absolutely nothing. I want to say shopping but we have been soooo tight on money. I work all day and take care of the child and house and whatnot at night by the time baby is in bed, i am ready for bed, then we do it all over the next day.
I go out for a couple hours in the evening when DH gets home or on the weekend. Just 2-3 hours to myself...to read at Barnes and Noble, get some library books, grab a coffee, browse some sale racks, etc goes a long way for my sanity.
I also take a long shower, ALONE (lol), on either Saturday or Sunday. And I also read for about 45 minutes every night before I fall asleep. It helps me wind down. Although when I have a young baby, that usually goes by the wayside for a while.
I either try to get my mom to take her for a couple hours so I can shower and relax for awhile, or I wait for the weekend and have DH take her on some long outing, like a bike ride to a different park where they can stay awhile. DH and I also love our date nights. I also love listening to my hypnobabies these days!
I take a loooooong shower, or when Drake is asleep I sit in the recliner and do nothing, no tv, no noise, nothing. Well, I drink a cup of hot tea. That always makes me feel good.
Thank you *Kiliki* for my perfect siggy Want to find a calmer way to parent? Please visit here HINTA Hitting Is Never The Answer Gentle parenting is about guiding instead of controlling,
connecting instead of punishing,
and encouraging instead of demanding.
It's about listening, understanding, responding and communicating. )O( Peace on Earth begins at Home )O(
