How Do You Make Time for Yourself? 1

Today alone, there were four appointments among our family. FOUR.

As mom, when it comes to a child-related appointment, I am the individual taking on¬†responsibility¬†for these and I can tell you, it isn’t easy. From Lucas’ physical therapy to regular doctors appointments and then some, my schedule wears me out quickly. Today I was asked how do I take care of myself? Well, I get quiet time when my little ones are asleep. That’s my me time, although I probably am still working away while they sleep. I was actually told that I am an incredible mother that would do anything for my children BUT I needed to get out of the house and away from my family for me time. That just doesn’t seem feasible to me.

There’s no signs of our busy schedules “letting up” and they actually appear to be getting even busier in the coming weeks.
