The day in life of a mom consist of non-stop work.  Household chores, work, kids, hubby and on and on.  There is never time to just sit down and relax.  So why do I always feel guilty about taking a little time for myself.

There is nothing in life that I love more than my family.  I enjoy spending time with them and doing things for them.  But there are moments when I could use a little 'me' time.  Just typing those words makes me feel guilty.

'Me' time.  What is that?  Since the moment I had my son 'me' time has been nonexistent.  I am a working mom so between work and taking care of our home, I never get a minute to myself.  Already feeling guilty about working, I make sure that every spare minute is devoted to my son.  I want to shower him with as much attention as I can.  I don't want my son to grow up and say 'my mom was always to busy for me.'

But there are times that I need a little space or I will explode!  I find myself looking forward to going grocery shopping just so I can have some alone time.  As awful as it sounds, being by myself in the grocery store is heaven to me.  That is the only time I don't feel pulled in a million directions.  I have one task and I find it relaxing.

Then comes the moment of guilt.  Is it horrible that I want to get away for a few minutes?  Does this make me a horrible mother?  I know the answer is no, but it still feels like a yes.

In reality, everybody deserves time to themselves.  The best thing to do is get rid of the guilt and talk to your husband.  Talking solves everything!  I expressed my feelings and my husband was completely understanding.

He has not only started helping with household chores but he has planned several daddy and son days.  My son feels extra special to spend the day with his daddy and I can have some 'me' time.

As a mom, it is important to set time aside for yourself.  You want to be able to enjoy your family and not consider them a chore.
