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?

Re: Ahhhh...
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. ;)

I took a bath and shaved my legs today. DH had to watch all 3 kids for about 30 minutes. Lol.

Re: Ahhhh...
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 got some Mike's the other day. I'm not a drinker at all but to have that freedom again is nice. I actually completely forgot about having it anytime soon because I thought I was gonna BF.

I'm gonna make some cookie dough tomorrow just to eat :)

Dh has been really awesome with helping. I get nightly baths and he lets me sleep in.

Oh and I also bought myself a pair of skinny royal blue jeans that I've been wanting.

Hmm, not much personal time these days and sorely missing it. I got to sleep for two hours by myself yesterday morning which was really nice. My best friend made dinner last night too, it was so good!

After holding Henry probably 21 hours or so a day for over two weeks I am in need of some space. Hopefully I will get some soon!!

Re: Ahhhh...
Nice! Hope you enjoyed it, mama!

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.

Re: Ahhhh...
Gosh I'm a little jealous...lol.. I watched 19 kids and counting this afternoon with no regard to whether my kids would enjoy it... and it turns out they were totally into it.

Oh Im jealous too.

Re: Ahhhh...
Me time is rare these days. I consider it a break when dh lets me sleep in or nap with the baby while he watches the other kids. That's about it for now...
