I'm tired. I'm whooped. All this craziness has caught up with me. I think it's a super-busy time for everyone, right now. So....it's time to break out The Pass.
That's right, you get a pass, I get a pass, we all get a pass.
Take a break. Enjoy a bubble bath, read a book, give yourself permission to spend time alone. Take a day off of work. Grab some extra sleep. Grab some extra me-time (and if you just said "me-time? what's that?" then you must take EXTRA me-time!! stat!) And guilt is absolutely NOT permitted.
The laundry can wait. The cobwebs aren't going anywhere. Pizza for dinner one night won't hurt anyone.
I totally agree with those who say that we are better parents when we make sure to take time to ourselves on a regular basis.
So, now you have a pass. No excuses. Take the pass and use it. Pass it on if you'd like!
