I knew going into this whole single mom by choice thing that I wouldn’t have much time for myself. I was naive in thinking I would have the kind of baby who let me get a few things done before bed or while they napped. I hadn’t met a high needs baby like Wallace!
After over two years, I have gotten to the point that I desperately need time to recharge, to just be me and not be Momma. I could count on my fingers the number of hours I have been away from my son and I don’t even get nap times to myself. There is also that new relationship that deserves some one on one time (she deserves a gold medal for how amazing she is with Wallace), I think they call it a date.
I need some tips on getting my not-mom time. How do you recharge, prioritize yourself and your relationship, while being a parent?
