Parents, you’ve got questions, we’ve got answers.

Or just as likely, we’ve got questions and you’ve got answers.

Sometimes I just need like... a minute.

A minute to myself.

A minute without little people demanding my immediate attention.

A minute without work emails.

A minute without talking.

A minute without reading.

A minute without stressing.

A minute without thinking.

A minute without responsibilities and planning and organizing and coordinating and multitasking.

Sometimes, just sometimes, I hide in the corner of my kitchen in the dark where no one can see me, no one can find me, no one can want me, no one can need me. Just for a minute.

It’s totally acceptable to take a minute for yourself. It’s ok. We all need them. We all should take them. So stop, take your minute. Hide. Breathe. Reboot.

Ok. Minute’s up...

Until tomorrow my friends ;)
