Kid Free

     I am one of the few privileged to be a stay at home mom.  I never imagined this life for me, but I am enjoying it.  Although, there are times that I need a BREAK!  My mom lives about 1.5 hours away and loves watching my son.  This week he stayed at her house for 2 nights...it was nice.  The problem is she is going back to work full time soon and won't be able to watch him like she has been.

     He started preschool back in January and attends 2 days a week for 2 hours; it's a small break that does help.  The thing is people who have jobs, like my husband, get days off; as a stay at home mom/ housekeeper, I rarely do.  Sometimes I feel like I am going to go crazy; especially on the days where my son is truly acting up.  Some days it's not that he's acting any different it's just my tolerance level is lower than normal...that's when I know it's time for a break.  Occasionally, my husband lets me have alone time on weekends while he takes our squirt out for the day and that helps.

     I know it won't be long until he is in school full time so I am trying to enjoy my time with him while I have it.  I shall take deep breaths and remember this time is short!

  1. Awww...I'm so sorry that you don't get enough time to yourself, I hear that so often from mothers. I take for granted what mothers hardly get, but at the same time, I don't have a little being to love that loves me, except my much loved and adored, and very loving puppy-dog.
    I hope you get some much needed time to yourself! I don't know if this helps any, but...it can be very lonely with too much time all by yourself! I know, doesn't help how you feel - I think you and I need to somehow split our lives and we'll each feel balanced. : )
