This morning I woke up before everyone else which is surprising since Patrick and I stayed up till 5am watching movies together after the little ones went to bed. Usually Rylie or Jace wakes me before I’m ready to get up and we start our day. Today Patrick had the day off so I got up and was planning on just using the bathroom then head back to bed.
It was the first time in a while that I didn’t have one or both kids in there with me. I didn’t even have to strain my ears trying to see if Jace was getting into something downstairs in the 2 minutes I would be gone. I made my coffee with both hands, let the dogs out, and even through some laundry in the washer. I was amazed at how fast and easily I could get stuff done. I even sat down at the computer and tried to get some designs for Decals done without also trying to keep Rylie from pressing every key or screaming at me cause I dared to put her down. I only finished one before I heard a voice and found both kids snuggling Daddy in bed.
We had tickle fights and played in bed before getting up and it was perfect.
But it made me realize how little free time I have to myself. I wouldn’t give up my babies for anything but I know I need to make time for myself. Even if it’s just 10 minutes before the kids wake up.
