I love my kids like crazy. I love being a stay-at-home mom. I love being a homeschooling mom.
But sometimes, I need a break.
Summers are actually the hardest time of the year to get them. During the school year, hubby takes them to Bible Club and Pioneer Girls twice a week. During the summer, these programs take a hiatus. And so does my break time.
This leaves my walking time as my time. But, many nights one or another kid joins me. I love having them get exercise and the conversation time we have.
But I really miss being alone to think my own thoughts.. It leaves any vestige of myself out of the equation and leaves me feeling very boring and flat.
How do you parents balance that in the summer? How do you keep some of the me?
