I’m not a mom and when the gf and I first got together I was like — look. When I get home from work, I need an hour. Maybe 45 minutes, but probably an hour. I’m gonna go in there — points to room — close the door, and no one is allowed to talk to me. Period.
Finding alone time is imperative, and it’s not ok that moms get robbed of it. I was a nanny and it was exhausting — and I got to go home at the end of the day. I can think of no one else more deserving of “me time” than moms. Could you institute a mommy time out? Like..maybe husband can watch your daughter for 30 minutes while mommy has a time out? (I dunno…that’s my non-mommy potential solution?)
