People are funny.
I was talking to a woman a few weeks back. We were chatting about a hairdresser she found who offers a great cut at a reasonable price. I mentioned I needed to go to that hairdresser but it wouldn’t work as the hairdresser – and the haircut – would cut into the limited amount of time I had with my son.
The woman gave me a seriously look and in a serious voice told me I had the right to have some me time.
I smiled and tried to explain to her that I do have ‘me time’ but gave it up for a lost cause.
Some people just don’t get it.
I have lots of me time.
I have me time in the hour it takes to get to the office and the hour it takes to get back to my little guy. I have the hours between when he goes to bed at 7 p.m. and I go to bed around 9ish.
I am not one of those people who feel they have lost themselves in becoming a mother.
In fact, a mom is what I have been waiting to become for a long time.
And since I have to go to work, and allow some other woman to raise my child, I will not lose what precious little time I have with my son doing anything other than be his ‘mumm-eee’.
