What is alone time?

I am married with a two yr old little boy, husband, and a 100 lb lab. I do not know the word of alone. I sometimes will try to stay up past everyone just so I can have some me time. My son is defiantly a momma's boy. He is always under my feet. I try so hard not to take it for granted. I just wanna bubble bath. I love to just relax and just be in the quiet. Not even do anything, just have the silence of the house around me.

I feel you. That’s why I stay up so late.

It's hard. My daughter would cry with her dad so I never got to take a shower in peace. It's getting better now. My son is always around me too. I get no space lol

[@1205874,tazmania486] haha true. But when it happens you shouldn't get annoyed or mad it just comes with parenthood. You can also let her burn her energy so she'll sleep longer and you get free time.

Can you schedule something that you do just for yourself, all alone maybe once a week?
It might help.

[@1205874,tazmania486] ❤️ A nice foot soak in warm water with salt (though check that with your doc if salt is fine for you), can really feel rejuvenating last thing at night before bed.
