"me time"

I seriously think Tina Fey is genius.  I have previously used a passage from her book, Bossypants, as inspiration for a post.  Today I return to this side splitter with a few of Tina’s ideas for carving out “me time” in your day.  “Me time”?  Those 5 minutes every mom is looking for to collect her thoughts, breathe deeply, and pee all by herself.

Tina advises:

  • Go to the bathroom a lot.
  • Take ninety-minute showers. (If you only shower every three or four days, it will be easier to get away with this.)
  • Stand over the sink and eat the rest of your child’s dinner while he or she pulls at your pant leg asking for it back.  
  • “Sleep when your baby sleeps.”  Everyone knows this classic tip, but I say why stop there?  Scream when your baby screams.  Take Benadryl when your baby takes Benadryl.  And walk around pantless when your baby walks around pantless.

I adore her take on motherhood.  Hilarious, with a touch of realism and self-deprecation.  She and I are kindred spirits.   If only I lived in Manhattan-I do believe we could be the best of friends.

PS.  Saw this on facebook today and loved it.  Pretty sure Tina would love it too!
