When you become a parent Wether your a mum or dad. It really is important to have time together or even separate.
Being a full time mum or dad (let’s face it ladies there are a few fantastic daddies who are stay at home dad’s!) We need our down time!
Since Bear was born in was very much trying to get him into a 7pm-7am night time routine. It did work for a while. But then he got to the terrible sleeping phase but more on that in the future.
Anyway to create some me time or more importantly how to get some “Me” time.
Here are my top tips for getting some me time.
1- let a relative have them over night… (my cousin is gem, she has Bear every few months now, for a night so we just have Bell)
2- Go to a keep fit class, yep this is one time I actually get where I am not having knocks on the bathroom door asking how long I will be as Bear or Bell wants me and not Daddy…
3- Find a good book and lock yourself in the bathroom with some candles and a glass of wine or if you don’t drink some orange juice.
4- Take up a hobby. I am really into Knitting, but more on that later.
5- Meet friends for a Meal or go to the cinema. Come on who doesn’t want to sit child free in the cinema and not share your sweets and popcorn?
I only really have 5 chill outs for me time what are yours?
