Oh, friend, can I just say how deeply I feel this? Parenting is both the most rewarding and challenging adventure that many of us will embark on. I mean, raising tiny humans? What an honor! But let’s be real, it can also be downright draining at times.
So let’s dive in and chat about how to find that precious time for YOU, even when you’re knee-deep in parenting.
Team Up With Your Partner
It’s like a beautiful dance, isn’t it? Handing off responsibilities and finding the rhythm that allows both of you to breathe. If you’ve got a partner, lean on each other. Schedule those moments for yourself, even if it’s just savoring a cup of tea or indulging in your favorite book. You’re both on this wild ride together, so make it a joint venture!
Perhaps your partner can take your child(ren) for a walk after dinner while you turn on a podcast and clean up. Or maybe they can head to the local children’s museum one morning while you sleep in and sip coffee while watching the news. Whatever you need, don’t be afraid to ask for some support and be specific with what you’re needing.

Daycare: Your Best Friend
Sometimes we need a village, and a daycare center can be a piece of that village! Finding a daycare that resonates with you and your little ones can create a freeing space. It’s not about handing off your kids; it’s about allowing them to flourish while giving yourself a break. You deserve that, too!
Many local Facebook groups or websites, like Care.com, can help you find the perfect solution to get some extra time by yourself.
Put The Devices Away
If you are generally feeling as though you don’t have a great deal of time to yourself, it might not only be your child – it might be that time is passing without you realizing it. Put that phone down, love. In the hustle of everyday life, we get caught in the scroll (I know I do). But guess what? Your soul doesn’t need likes; it needs connection and presence. Reconnect with yourself, your dreams, and your kiddos. Time will stretch in the most magical way.
Know When To Ask For Help
We’ve all been there: drowning in to-dos and feeling like asking for help makes us less of a superhero. But guess what? It doesn’t. It makes you human, wise, and compassionate to yourself. Reach out to a friend, family, or neighbor. It’s not a sign of weakness; it’s a badge of wisdom.
There you have it! Simple, yet transformative steps that can bring joy back into the chaos. Life is a beautiful mess, and you, dear friend, are doing an amazing job. Allow yourself to breathe, to enjoy, and to be YOU because that’s who your little ones need the most.
Your dreams, your happiness, your wellbeing – they matter too. Embrace them with open arms, and don’t forget to smile because you’ve got this. If you need a cheerleader, I’m right here, cheering you on every step of the way.
