I love being a mom. It’s the most rewarding job I’ve ever had. BUT, after a long day of listening to screaming kids, having snotty noses wiped on my shirt and hearing the word “why?” for the hundredth time, I NEED to recharge my batteries. I need some Mommy Me Time.

Great list!! I particularly like getting a pedicure, going to the library/bookstore, the gym or yoga, as those are the ones I do every so often. But my hubby and I seriously need to go on a date ASAP!!
