Day 11 - "You" Time

Today's Tip - Make time for yourself

Do whatever you need to do and maintain your sanity. Take a nap, read a book, watch a movie, go out with friends - do whatever relaxes you. You're not a bad parent for wanting time to yourself. You're human. And if every second of every day is focused on your child, you'll find yourself burned out and bitter.

I make sure to give my spouse the opportunity to take a couple hours off each day, and she has no problem watching our son if I need to get out of the house for a bit. It's made being new parents easier, and we're happier parents for it.
