Sometimes I find myself wondering what other moms do when they get a minute to themselves. That time is precious am I right? I had a lot more free time when it was just me and Campbell. I rarely get any time to myself these days but that's okay. For the most part I enjoy how busy I am because I don't get bored and my days go by quickly. Plus, I know that my time will free up a tiny bit as Bennett continues to get older.
The boys are there from 9:00-2:00. I drop them off, come home, go for a run, shower, pump and before I know it, it's 11:30-12:00. Sometimes Scott and I have day dates and eat lunch together and sometimes I have so much to do that I don't have time to eat anything other than a handful of goldfish. I spend my last hour and a half getting groceries, running errands, or doing some fun shopping. I pop back home around 1:30 to pump quickly then I head back out to get the boys. Right now I send two bottles with Bennett so I have to pump twice which takes up a lot of my time. I feel like within the next few weeks we'll be able to stretch him out to having just one bottle so that will give me a little bit more free time.
While my MDO days are pretty much the only chance I get me time, I can usually work it out to where the boys both take their afternoon naps at the same time. If that happens, a lot of the time I just lay on my bed and relax. I look on Pinterest, social media, shop online and snuggle with my girls. It's a much needed break in my day. After the boys go to bed at night, I typically have a lot to do around the house: laundry, dishes, pick up toys, blog, edit photos, etc. If the stars are aligned and I don't have any of that to do, I treat myself to a bath and Scott and I will usually watch a show together. Before I know it, it's time for bed and then I start all over again the next day.
So that's how I spend my free time! What about you?
