All I need is a day off and have time for myself but it seems so impossible because I’m a full time mom. That is one disadvantages of being a stay at home mom, you don’t have a leave and you can’t even file resignation. I’m not complaining but I’m just human, I need to relax, rest and recharge so I can be effective mom. I only had one day off for four years of being a stay at home mom, this was my post in my multiply account.

I hope someday my husband will realize that I also need a break, a rest day, day-off, mommy's alone time or whatever you want to call it. It's been a year and two months since I became a SAHM (Stay at home MOM) and I have no regrets but I know that it is not easy for me since I am not used being at home. No work, no pay, no "me” time.
I don't know how many times I've asked him to give me just one day for myself, without him and my baby. I don't know how I will explain it to him so he can understands and feels that it is not for a selfish reason but also for a healthy reason.
I just need a break to unwind, to relax and to treat myself from the pain and hardships I've encountered during my pregnancy, labor and few months of being a mom. So I can feel that I still have life on my own.
Or should I accept the fact that motherhood has no Day off.
One week after this post, I packed my bags and left the house because I know if I will stay more I will be crazy. I just spent my weekend in my sister’s house just to have time for myself and went back home. It’s been three years now (almost) since I had my day off and I’m looking forward to have my "me time"again. I just need a little time for myself, away from household chores, errands and mommy duties. But checking my husband’s schedule I know it would be impossible unless God will make a way.
