Whether you have children who are newborn or in elementary school and beyond - sometimes it's so easy to get wrapped up in our children's lives that we forget about us.
Many moms I have spoken to on the topic of "Me-Time" have either dismissed it as though they don't need it, or that its selfish to even factor themselves in to the family equation. Some also claim that they just don't have the time to do the things they want to for themselves anymore and put it off to do "down the road".
The fact is "Mommy time" is just as important for the sanity of you, as it is for the sanity of the entire family unit...
So tomorrow is my birthday and it seems that the older I get - the less I want to broadcast my age. However, I always said I NEVER wanted to become one of those women who never said how old she was - so in keeping with that - tomorrow I turn the ripe old age of 36.
I think the biggest problem with turning 36 is that I am no longer in my true mid-thirties. Now, I am infact closer to 40 than ever before, and despite what everyone says about 40 being the "new 30" - it still bothers the heck out of me...
