It is Monday night so you you know what that means. Mommy time, мама време, мама время, mama tempo, Mâmiòlaiks or Mami Zeit. The universal language all mothers understand, because we get so little of it. I , however, have an hour to myself every night, after the little "horrors" have gone to bed, where I can do anything I want. Sometimes I exercise and sometimes I eat something really naughty while watching TV. Either way, it is my party and I will cry if I want to! For that hour I am left in total peace.
It honestly, is the only way I have retained my sense of humour and kept my sanity. Come rain or shine, sweltering summer or freezing winter. My time is not negotiable! My precioussssss...
If you pre-cook meals, get up earlier to clean the house, do a little bit of laundry every day rather than twice a week, this time can be yours too. It does not matter if you already go to a gym. The quintessential reason for "mommy time" is to reboot the server, if you know what I mean? Even if you are a single mother, that alone time you spent on yourself as opposed to by yourself, does wonders for your well being. You can do cheap and natural facials, manicures, pedicures, exfoliate your whole body or just dance your daily stress away.
With that comes more energy, looking better, feeling better and sleeping better. If you don't know where to start, just put on a great CD and let the music decide for you. As Madonna once said: "music is life, music is poetry, music is sex, music is fantasy!!"
