Looking Forward to Having a Me Time Soon

Since I gave birth the only me time I have is when I am inside the toilet lol. Fellow PP mommies I think you know where I am coming from haha.

I am not complaining, in fact, being a mom is the most wonderful thing that happened to me -next to being a wife.The sudden jolt of purpose and

the inexplicable joy that came to me when I saw my little girl superseded all the difficulties that I had gone through the whole stretch of my

pregnancy. But ,of course, I still want to have my much needed ME TIME. I need it to rejuvenate and relax to become a better mom. Agree,


Today is Monday and my ME TIME is usually every Wednesdays. Two more sleeps from today is my ME TIME. Yes, I am as if a little child

awaiting for his/her birthday.

My mom is such a sweetheart for offering her hand to babysit my daughter,her

grandchild,every Wednesday so that I can go to Redemptorist church. We are both devoted to Our Mother of Perpetual Help. When I was still single

we would go together every Wednesday. Three months later after I had given birth,she told me to continue attending the novena every Wednesday.

Because of this, I have time for myself after attending the novena.Thus I declared Wednesdays my ME TIME.

Do you have a ME TIME? What do you usually do on this day?

I never even heard of "Me Time" until after my children were adults and I had become a granny. My eldest granddaughter's mother introduced me to the concept. I know exactly what you mean about having no time to yourself!

Wow, that is good that you have your Me Time. But in my case, I do not have Me Time because of my busy schedule. That is not good for me. On Wednesday is the birthday of my youngest son.

Even when one lives alone, we need our ME time, free from work, chores, stress.
I have trouble taking time out to do something frivolous. Comes from a family that sees that as "lazy."

I think most moms and many dads understand just how you feel. It is wonderful that your mother enjoys time with her granddaughter and you have some time to yourself.

Enjoy your own time when you can. There's a reason why I don't have kids yet lol. Being a mom isn't a bad job as long as you take well care of the kid.
