Since we are working with severely limited time as it already is with multiple kids in our care, it can be very tempting to cut out of our lives the very things that helps us to feel nourished. We must remember to do something for ourselves, even if it feels self-indulgent or selfish. It is not. It is simply remembering to include ourselves in the equation of life. When we do this, include ourselves when we are budgeting out our time, we are happier parents and we don’t feel so deprived. Joy on this journey of parenting is important! It’s what makes all the difference.
