I’m incredibly blessed to have a supportive husband, family, and friends. Thanks to them, I’ve been able to have some time to myself throughout the new parenthood journey. As someone who can be a little high-strung, it’s important for me to be able to be alone and breathe (and maybe eat a sandwich without a tiny human begging for a bite.)
It just so happened that a friend and I both had a stressful week last week. We weren’t ready to burn out, but for me at least, it was a possibility on the horizon. I offhandedly mentioned that we should have a girl’s day out, and my friend sprung on the suggestion. Our husbands are friends and had no problem watching the kids and playing video games together for a few hours, so we gathered our things and headed out for a manicure.
