{the importance of mommy time outs}

life with three kiddos is a great adventure.
there are days when it feels like a non-stop fun, rolling out over and over again. And then there are those days which feel like time is passing so slowing like mud through a sieve.

motherhood can be beautiful. there are days filled with laughs, tickles, smiles--days full of sunshine and lollypops. but every once in awhile, more often then we would like to admit, you have those off days...days filled with tears, tantrums, and frustrations. these are the days when there have been so many time out's you lost count. days when every time you ask you kid to do something they scream "no" in your face...days when they are kicking and screaming because you asked them to put their dirty clothes in the hamper. these are days when you are constantly stalking the clock, counting down the minutes till daddy comes home. the days when as soon as your husband sets foot in the house, you kindly inform him that you will be taking a time out for the next hour. you hastily grab your stash of emergency chocolate, your phone and in search of a place furthest from the crazy that has invaded your house.

it's ok to take a mommy time out, actually I think it's a requirement to maintain sanity a midst the chaos. as a mommy we constantly showering grace on our little ones and now is the time to shower some on yourself. you will better momma and wife, trust me.

so with all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, shower yourself with some grace, grab a chocolate bar and lock yourself in the nearest in the room that locks...your kids will thank you.
