Time out Thursday
Holy Toledo it has been a super dooper long time since Pink Haired Momma has had a mommy time out! I have been feeling so sad, reporting my failure to our fearless leader in the Time out Thursday quest, Theta Mom . But not any more. This week I get to shout from the roof tops that I Pink Haired Momma had a mommy time out!
Some of you might remember back a long while ago, when Thursdays would bring this wonderful post about how I spent 30 minutes during the last 7 days to myself. Yes that is right just 30 minutes. Theta Mom challenges us as women and mothers to always remember to take a break for ourselves. If we are not rested then we can not be held responsible for the insanity that may ensue. Hmmm maybe I shouldn't take a break, HA! Just kidding. So anyway, on the last Thursday of the month we head on over to Theta Moms and link up to share how we in fact remembered to take a mommy time out and keep our sanity in check. It is a wonderful way to connect to other moms and also get ideas on how to spend your next time out! If you have heard my stories before on my mommy time outs, then stick around cause your gonna hear another. And if you are new to this, go check out Theta Mom and join us in this quest to remember to have a mommy time out!
So check this out! This is the ULTIMATE time out! I had the privilege this week to be honored with the greatest gift ever...
A cleaning crew came in and cleaned my entire house for me! Oh my goodness, I can not tell you how marvelous it felt to have a clean house and not be exhausted from baby poop changes and cleaning bananas outta places not fruit should ever go. So with my sparkling clean floors and fresh scented kitchen, I utilized Baby DIVA's 2 hour, let me repeat 2 HOUR, nap time to just sit around, watch tv, play on the Internet and take a little cat nap. And I did not feel the least bit guilty. That right there was the Mommy time out I needed the most. Allowing myself to just relax and unwind without the worry of the house being dirty, or the laundry needing to get done. It was by far the best 2 hours I have had in a super long time! I feel like a Pink Haired Princess!!
