Before I had kids, I knew that being a mom was more than a full time job, but it took me actually doing the job to realize the true meaning of that statement. Don’t get me wrong, I love every minute of it, but having kids is a lot of work. I have been on the go non-stop since I had my first son ten years ago. Literally.
I have to make sure my boys are fed every day.
And don’t even get me started on the insane amount of laundry I do in this house. Every. Single. Day.
Oh, and most days, I play maid, too (please ignore the mess).
Then as soon as they get off the bus from school, they need help with their homework.
And did I mention that I am a taxi service for these guys?
With all of that, it’s no wonder that I need a little ME time once in a while. If you’re a mom, too, then you know how hard finding that ME time can be. I think I’ve figured it out, though. Here’s what I do to when I need to”escape” for a few minutes.
1. Sit in the Car
Sometimes there’s nowhere to escape in the house, so I head out to the car. Hey, there’s air conditioning, heat, music, and sometimes snacks. Most importantly, there is peace and quiet. My kids are old enough to survive for 5-10 minutes while I sit in the car and get my sanity back.
2. Grab a Broom & Head to the Basement
Tell the kids you are heading downstairs to kill some mice and that you’ll be back in a few minutes. We don’t actually have mice in our house and I would probably move out if I ever found one down there, but the kids don’t need to know that.
3. Bake Something The Kids Don’t Like
I can tell you from first hand experience, that if I bake something the kids don’t like, they will be nowhere to be found for at least an hour (or likely longer). They disappear out of fear that I will make them eat it whether they like it or not. It’s a great way to get a little time to myself.
4. Wear Ear Phones
Yes! This is one of my favorite. When I’m around the house and I feel like I need some “me” time I put on my head phones. It’s amazing what you can avoid when you’re wearing those amazing pieces of technology.
5. Hide in the Bathroom
I have been known to grab a chocolatey treat and just sit in the silence of my bathroom on occasion. Ok, fine – I do it at least once a day, but hey – I need a few minutes to myself sometimes.
Because I sneak off to hide in the loo on a regular basis, I need to make sure my pantry is stocked with goodies at all times. I headed over to Walmart the other day to stock up on some of my favorite Skinny Cow(R) treats. By always having something from Skinny Cow(R) on hand, I always have a decadent way to indulge in a little ME time, anytime!
Here’s what I bought when I was at Walmart.
1. Skinny Cow(R) Blissful Truffle Candy Bars
Skinny Cow(R) Blissful Truffle Candy Bar, which comes in two flavors – Milk and Dark Chocolate can be found right on the candy aisle. The NEW Skinny Cow(R) Blissful Truffle Candy Bars are the newest addition to the Skinny Cow(R) line of indulgent chocolate candies. Skinny Cow(R) Blissful Truffle Candy Bars have a rich, soft truffle layer and if you are a chocolate lover, you will thoroughly enjoy this the decadent chocolate experience these candies will give you.
2. Skinny Cow(R) Mocha Latte Creamy Iced Coffee
With the warm weather creeping up quickly here in New England, what could be better than a refreshing creamy iced coffee? The Skinny Cow(R) brand’s insanely indulgent Creamy Iced Coffee Drinks are a decadent blend of rich roasted coffee whipped with creamy milk. The beverages are now available in three delicious flavors: Vanilla Latte, Mocha Latte & Creamy Cappuccino in the refrigerated section in Walmart.
Another one of my favorite Skinny Cow(R) Frozen treats are the new Skinny Cow(R) Vanilla Almond Crunch Bars. The impossibly indulgent Skinny Cow(R) Chocolate Dipped Ice Cream Bars feature three rich new flavors — including creamy Vanilla Almond Crunch, decadent Double Caramel Swirl and tempting Triple Chocolate Ripple.
Skinny Cow(R) is a simple, delicious way to indulge and savor some much needed ME time! In the bathroom. Alone.
An in store demo of Skinny Cow(R) will be available at various Walmart locations between 5/7-5/10. Please check this list to confirm your store’s date.
