I have quite a few boards on pinterest, one particular I love is one I themed Mama Time. I pin images of women who are alone, spending time reading, relaxing, cooking. Each of these evokes a feeling, a sense of nostalgia for me. It is not that I want to be left alone all the time (though sometimes, yes I want to be left alone for a nice long period)! It is that I want/need some time to to remember my thoughts, what I want, what matters to me. Time is so rare, minutes are hot commodity and a space for oneself is a rarity. We mothers need to remember to take care of ourselves, allow ourselves to have a few moments that help us to dream, rest and just be. Regardless if you carve out time at home, have your partner watch the kids for 30 minutes, use up 20 minutes of nap time (while you can!) space can be anything you choose it to be. So choose your space and give yourself some well deserve you time.
