Can I have time to myself?
I hear this same sentiment so often I’ve lost count! The quick and easy fix to this story is to communicate with each other and plan!
You don’t realise how much “free” time you had until a baby arrives on the scene. Suddenly even the simplest of tasks (or even tasks you didn’t particularly enjoy), take on a new meaning of “possible freedom” for even a few moments.
Planning and scheduling time for yourself is very important – both as an individual but also as a couple when you have a baby.
Going to the gym alone or shopping alone or doing something for YOU alone, CAN be achieved but NOT on the spur of the moment.
You do need to coordinate everyone’s schedules. It will keep you all sane – including your babies!
So go on, Schedule people, schedule! You can thank us later..
