Making the most of your time

I deal with being exhausted as a mom by sleeping in my car. I kid you not. I have been known to take 15 minute naps in parking lots, in my driveway, in the parking garage. If I had a day of work, I will go back to my car and take a 15 minute nap before I get on the road to go back home. Because in my opinion you have to seize every single moment of time that is available to you to recharge, even if it’s just 1 minute here, 5 minutes here, 15 minutes in your car that you may have to take a nap. It will do wonders. So if you see me napping in a parking lot, please do not knock on the window. I need that rest. Because as every mom knows, the second you walk into the door, there is no time for rest or recharging of any kind. You have little tiny beautiful lovable people coming at you screaming “mommy-mommy. I need this. I want this. Look at what I did.” Once you walk in the door, you are theirs, no matter what you try to do. So you need to take the time to rest when you can, when you are by yourself. And for me that means in my car.
