My husband is great at pitching in and helping, but we both tend to not take enough time for ourselves. it's hard when we get home btw 6-630, eat dinner, play a little, then bedtime is at 7:45. If I go workout, I've missed out on interacting with my son for the day. That's the hard part. My husband is the same way, we're both a little nervous about this parenting thing, so we tend to overdo it at times.
Even still, I realize I need some time for myself. I try not to burden my hubby with this, because he needs time for himself as much as I do. so, when I'm feeling like I haven't had "ME-time" I do one of a few things:
1. Schedule a haircut (my stylist usually gives me a mini-facial that's a nice 5 minute pampering...)
2. Read a magazine instead of doing dishes. Sure, there is a good chance I'll still have to do them eventually, but who cares.
3. Schedule a sitter. One of the luxuries of being a working mom is that there is a little more $$ to go around, right? I will say, after writing this, I realize I need to do this more often... hmmm, where is her number again?
