Being a full time mother is having a job which has one of the longest working hours on a daily basis. We are busy from the time we wake up and only able to take a break when the kids go to bed at night. Sometimes our day doesn’t end till past midnight as we still have unfinished chores and task to do for the day. Many people perceive that full time mothers would fall into the trap of being so busy taking care of their kids that they start to neglect their own well being.
That’s definitely not me. Certainly not!
I believe that it is important to take care of myself first to be able to fully concentrate on caring for the family. Everybody needs some “Me Time” including myself and there is no exception to it.
It is essential to have time off to recharge and rejuvenate my spirit so that I can cope fully with the stresses of motherhood and caring for my three kids.
I should and can have a life besides just caring for the kids and taking care of the household.
It shouldn’t be difficult to schedule your babysitters with a sitter scheduling program like Sitter Scout.
Sitter Scout makes it easy it is to schedule a sitter as and when needed. The online mobile tool allows you to help book your existing babysitters faster, by instantly contacting the sitters you choose – and enabling them to respond – via SMS.
It not only saves time but makes confirmation much easier by doing all the work needed to get a sitter.
I find that it is great that I am ensured that there is someone to take care of the kids. I would be able to go for the baking class which I had been planning to attend and have some time to do what I like. I would also have peace of mind while attending the class as I know the kids are in good hands.
Taking time off for myself really perks me up and makes me happier. It rubs off on the kids too as I am more tolerant with them and they too are happier when mummy’s happy too.
