stay at home mom leaves

We have four kids. Four young kids: twin six year olds, a three year old, and an 11 month old. I stay at home with them and have since giving birth for the first time six years ago. My transition into this SAHM role wasn't easy on me.

Motherhood is stressful and we all need some me time, time to ourselves. I LOVE this post about how to make it actually count and help rejuvenate us.

I'd bet you've heard a Mom say things like "I need a break!" or "I need a night to recharge," or "I just need a night out"? Perhaps it came from your own mouth! The general sentiment behind such things is that moms get stressed out carrying the load of their family and homes on their shoulders and need to escape from that load with something, well, less stressful than screaming, fighting, moody, destructive little people, who may or may not be able to communicate properly.Moms do need a break from time to time, whether a stay at home mom, working mom, or single mom. Moms are stressed and overworked and really just need a break, ...
