B eing that I’m a stay-at-home mom of two little ones, I rarely get the opportunity to be completely alone. Sure, I get a little down time late at night when everyone’s in bed, and sure, I’ve turned my bathroom time into my mini, sacred little moment of meditation; but it just doesn’t compare to spending time by yourself in a completely empty house.
When you’re alone, you can do all of those quirky little things that you used to do prior to having kids and a husband: like talk back to the television, eat snacks without an audience, and poop with the door open. Being alone gives you the chance to experience the old you once again. That fun-loving, “do-what-I-wanna” you of yesteryear.
My twins will be three in December, and I can honestly say that it’s been about that long since I’ve had an entire day completely to myself… that is, up until about a week ago.
My babies are finally at an age where they feel comfortable staying at grandma and grandpas overnight, and I’ll be damned if the husband and I haven’t started taking full advantage of that awesome little fact. We’ve upped our date nights to twice a month, and yours truly was able to have her first day alone in what seems like forever.
