Once in a while. We both work FT, my husband is going to school and we have 2 kids ages 2 years and 3 months. Life is hectic. Every once in a great while, my husband will be at work and both kids will be sleeping at the same time. It's just luck when it happens. :) It's worth it though! I know I'll eventually have more "me time" than I'd like. :)

Nap time. Most of the time I'll get 30-45mins of quiet me time when all 3 kids are napping, but that's only if they'll all nap at the same time

I feel incredibly fortunate to have an hour on each of Monday and Wednesday when i have child care but don't have to work. I've been really focusing on my workouts during these times, and feeling like a real person again!

Very seldom. A couple times a week when my husband is working in town, I try to take a bath. I seldom get more than 15 or 20 min before either the baby is crying or my preschooler wants to come join me. Once or twice a week my parents come over and entertain the preschooler for a couple hours. I occasionally leave the baby with them for 30 min or so to do some grocery shopping or have a shower, but she doesn't take a bottle so time is limited. I figure this stage when they are so, so dependent goes pretty fast so I don't mind too much most days.

A few times a week my hub lets me sleep in and sometimes I get some me time if he naps with the baby (ds won't sleep alone...).

At my out of home job :) haha, it's funny but thats the most 'me' time I get on a regular basis. As for recreational 'me' time...I try once a month or so, and thats usually an evening where a friend comes over and we have some wine and watch movies, chat, etc...DH works all three shifts, they change about once a week, so it's hard for me to get out when my other mommy friends are also available (most of my friends are police officer wives too).

Baby Girl hates sleep, so there is no hope for me time during the day. For the last few weeks she has been going down by 10 pm, so I get a little downtime before bed.

Well when babes are really little (under 1 y/o) I personally find it impossible. To be completely alone-with out babe.

After about the 18 month mark, I've found a little time. I have only did it one time! But, I went out thrifting with a girlfriend on a Saturday. I plan on taking some sewing lessons and such too sometime in the future. Although for now I bring the kids with me to the sewing lessons! lol

My husband is a substitute teacher so there are days he doesn't get a job and stays home. While I get super excited to have him home I find myself sleeping in to cuddle my two boys, hubby and baby. I don't get any alone time because I am taking care of the baby and husband all day. I have fun doing it so it isn't until later in the day that I start to get grouchy from having no quiet time.

On days my husband works I take nap #1 of my baby to relax and process life, journal, read my Bible, catch up on emails, and ultimately just be alone and quiet. This is usually around 10 or 11 am.

I plan on taking some quiet time when my husband stays home, too. I just haven't figured out when to do that.

Sorry this is out so late.

When do you get "me" time? (i.e. every day at 9AM, once a week, once a month, never)
