Thursday Late Afternoon – Local Library Pizza Party
Friday Afternoon/Evening – Dance Classes
Saturday Evening – Daisy Trip
Sunday Daytime – Two Kid Birthday Parties overlapping
And my list of where I am needed as far as chauffeuring duties and more just keep going on and on for this mom.
Seriously, I could totally revival Driving Miss Daisy with all the places I see and go to daily with my gang.
So no real surprise that by bedtime for the girls, I am in need of some serious me downtime to indulge.
But how on earth can I do that?
See as a mom, myself and pretty much all moms are on from the moment we wake until the last child’s head hits the pillow for dreamland at night.
Still, if you are like me you don’t want to immediately go to bed once the kids are indeed asleep.
But what are some ways that you can enjoy the actual peace and quiet of the day’s end.
5 Ways That Moms Can Indulge After The Kids Go To Bed
1. Netflix/Hulu Binge Watch –
As I shared recently, I was binge watching Fuller House with both my girls, but there are many other viewing options just for moms, such as Netflix’s New Original Series, Love or Hulu’s New Original Series, 11.22.63. Also, both have a wide range of older hits shows to binge on as well, including 90s hits, such as Seinfeld, Friends, Felicity, and even My So-Called Life.
2. Read an actual book –
I have recently shared on my blog that the past few months my reading has been on fire and have to admit one of my favorite me-time pastimes is to read just about any book I can get my hands on.
3. Surf the web, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest or more. –
As much as I can scan social networks all day long, sometimes I just can’t help but devour them that much more after the kids are snuggled into their beds, because I suppose it is that easy to do with my trusty iPad.
4. Play Online App Games, such as Wordbrain –
Again, my iPad or even my iPhone with allow me to play all sorts of games and in recent months I was enjoying playing Wordbrain.
5. Have a fun snack that no one can Bogart from you –
Sometimes I truly just want to be able to enjoy a late night snack that little hands can’t try and steal from me. In these cases, I choose Betty Crocker™ Soft Baked Bars, which I recently found at my local Walmart during a fun filled shopping trip are brand NEW and are a truly delicious and highly indulgent treat.
These Betty Crocker™ Sweet Rewards bars are therefore just right for all those blissful me -time moments that as a mom are still a much-needed part of my life, especially after a long week of shuttling my own kids from place to place.
They come in three different equally scrumptious varieties in either Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar, Caramel Brownie Bar or Butterscotch Blondie Bar.
So now when the kids go to bed I am all set with a sweet and delectable treat with Betty Crocker™ Sweet Rewards bars.
Still, just in case my little ones decide to come find me after dark, I have also created a fun, but effective printable to keep my little ones from disturbing me further with Do Not Disturb Door Hanger that you, too, can have now for all your mom indulging after-hours.
