A few things need to happen. First, acknowledge that you deserve a little time to yourself. We're not talking about a solo vacation to Hawaii (though that would be nice), but an afternoon will do. Second, get your partner on board. And if they're not fully supportive of you needing a couple hours to yourself, then you may have a bigger problem on your hands. Lastly, exit the scene. It may just be for a little museum and reading time in the park (like me), getting your nails done, going to the movies, catching up with friends -- WHATEVER! All that matters is that you get a bit of time to think about something other than what to make the kids for lunch. I guarantee you'll come home feeling more rested and reinvigorated. Which only serves to make you a better mom.
See it all comes full circle, right? Luckily, Crocs shares my enthusiasm for this subject. See below for how you can win some cash and gift cards to have a little #MomsDayOff for yourself!

I really value my "me" time because quite frankly, it doesn't happen very often. Spent a little time at the @metbreuer this past wknd which was just what I needed (plus you could eat the candy in this display). On that note, I'm excited to spread the word about the @crocs #MomsDayOffContest! 10 winners will receive $50 CROCS gift cards & $100 cash & 50 more will receive $50 CROCS gift cards!
