Moms Get 17 Minutes Per Day To Themselves. That Seems Like A Lot!
Have you ever done the math moms, about how much free time you might have each day?
Um…yeah. It’s not that much. When we are off work, we’re busy getting water cups for the kids and changing diapers and cleaning up Legos before we step on them and send shooting pain through our feet, and if we have older kids we’re shuttling them to dance practice and baseball practice and buying them new shoes because they’re constantly growing out of the other size. Oh, and then there’s mac and cheese to stick in the microwave and stains to get out of clothes, and inevitably somebody gets stuck climbing on something they shouldn’t and needs rescued.
After all that, we have 17 minutes leftover. Cool! But doesn’t that seem like an eternity? Seventeen minutes would be awesome! I think we have 5 or 6 minutes per day to ourselves, and that’s only because we lock the bathroom door.
Have a great weekend! I hope you find time for a hot bath, a glass of wine, and a cozy night with some big fuzzy slippers by the fire. You deserve it.
