Alone Time for Moms

Mother Runs Errands to Buy Herself Some Alone Time

Few people would consider grocery shopping or dropping off the dry cleaning to be the highlight of their weeks, but for mamas who find themselves shuttling the kids from school, play dates, and birthday parties, such mundane tasks are a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

A friend was recently telling me that she looks forward to leaving the house for 20 minutes to run such errands because she knows she is guaranteed at least a few minutes of time alone to gather her thoughts, call a friend for an uninterrupted conversation, or just enjoy letting her mind wander.

Do you savor tasks that buy you a bit of kid-free time?
