I just want to document that I finally got some “me time” last night. And how did I achieve this? I went to bed, at 9pm. And I didn’t get into my own bed. I actually went and got into bed in the spare room. This is of significance because we are the hippy lentil weaving types who let our kids get into our bed in the middle of the night. I do this on the basis that right now, they want to, and in a few years, they will not want to, because they’ll not think it cool. So whilst we can give them something that they want, like and enjoy, we’re going to give it to them. We deny / refuse our children all sorts of things, so if this is an opportunity for me to say yes, then damm it I will !!!
But the downside of this is that I’ve not had two consecutice full nights of unbroken sleep in years. And I do mean years. Sometimes, they sleep through, but I wake up anyway, and check they are ok, because they’ve not climbed in with us!
But anyway, I digress. I went to bed at 9pm. Read a bit of 50 Shades on my AyePhone and then, went to sleep. Yes, I woke up several times in the night, but I did not get out of bed until 6am to go to the loo and then, went back to bed until 7.30am. Now that to me, is me time.
What constitutes “me time” to you?
