Home alone

Yes, I am home alone right now. My husband and his mom took all three kids, and went out, leaving me home alone. They left around 12:30-1:00. It is now almost 3:30. It's been really nice. I've been able to watch some Hercule Poirot, starring David Suchet, while doing some writing. It feels good. I am glad that I've been able to have some time to myself and do some writing. Although I am starting to miss them. I am still going to try and enjoy it as much as I can, and do a little more writing. I do appreciate my husband and his mom giving me this time. As a parent, it is nice to have some time away from the kids and just relax. As much as I love my kids, I do need some "me" time.

As much as you love the kids it sure does feel good to have a bit of time for yourself once in a while.

Absolutely. I love my kids and love spending time with them, but sometimes, I do like having a few minutes to myself, to do things I'd like to do, or even just think.

@dodo19 I hardly used to get anytime for myself when my kids were smaller. So when I get some I would just sleep for hours.

@dodo19 It is our own free time to have an introspection of ourselves.

We certainly do. Otherwise I think we'd all go insane. I know I certainly would, if I didn't have some time to myself.

You are right. Sometimes moms like a full time job and not many people can understand how hard it is. That's very considerate that your husband and mother-in-law took away the kids and give you some free time. It is precious to be alone to do whatever you like, even if it is just several hours.

It is hard work and not everyone understands how hard it can be. I really did appreciate that time to myself.

I understand that, after the week I have had, I have needed some me time just to think.

I don't think there's a mother in the world who won't know where you're coming from with this. Me time is practically non-existent when they are small, so grab it with both hands!

I think you're right. I doubt if there isn't a mom who doesn't want some alone time. We all need it.

I think a lot of us are like that. We enjoy our time alone, but after a while we start to miss them.

That was nice of him, every parent deserves a little time away from the kids, and vice versa, it does the kids some good too they say.

Agreed. Each parent needs it. He tries to do it for me, and I for him. It can be nice to get away from each other. They probably get tired of being with us all the time.
