How I Find “Me Time” While Traveling with Kids

Since becoming a part-time work from home mom a few years back, I’ve discovered how hard it can be to carve out “me time.”

crave need solitude daily. Quiet time. I don’t always get it.
Sure, I’ve tried the whole “waking up an hour before the kids” thing, but they just somehow wake up early with me.
Girl’s Night Out happens too infrequently…and while valuable to my mental health – even GNO doesn’t charge my batteries quite like quiet time alone does.
So this year, for my birthday, I think my husband was a little surprised that I wanted my gift to be a long weekend staycation at the nearby lake, with the whole family in tow.
