Alone Time

Speaking of nail polish, I had about 10 stolen minutes of alone time while Husband brought the kids to VBS last week, so I quickly perused the blogs and painted my nails. Something I haven't really done since my brother's wedding back in June (paint my nails, that is, not blog-read.)

Those few moments of solitude in a mom's life is so precious. And because of this fact, it sometimes feels so secretive. Quiet time to think or to hear nothing.

As a 20-something young woman, years ago, time was something I had, along with naturally dark hair and no wrinkles. Someone I knew at that time, told me to cherish that place and I listened, but I was longing for a different place. A place filled with a mate and babies.

And that eventually happened. And it is good.


  1. Hi Suzanne

    I do love stealing moments of time for myself...I just have to remember to do it a little more often. Usually it's in the morning before my late sleeping kiddies get up!!! it's nice when the house is so quiet, you can think and hear!!!! Love this post!!

  2. Alone time is so precious. Now that I am in my thirties, I look back into my twenties and wonder what in the world did I do with all that free time?! If only we knew then what we know now. Definitely enjoy those moments. :)

  3. I steal moments every day. I get up before everyone at 5:20. :)

  4. I take my alone time at night, after the kids are in bed and the husband has gone to work. After cartoons, kids playing and fighting all day and the chores of being a mom, it's great to turn off the TV and sit in silence!


What are your thoughts?
