When y0u have kids it is easy to lose yourself and put all of your focus on your baby(babies). So many sleepless nights and days when you didn’t even get a shower or get out of your pajamas. I remember being so exhausted I could cry and wondered when the next time would be I would get a night of uninterrupted sleep.
Then the kids start to walk and want to play by themselves and be more independent. You can actually get a little time to yourself and even take a shower, put some makeup on and maybe even read a magazine.
You can actually put more focus on yourself again, it is hard to remember what that is like sometimes.
Beyond Baby is a great place to start to learn how to refcous your time for you. It is a week by week guide to creating a life you love when your kids aren’t so little. There are forty weekly challenges plus a free workbook where you can write notes and observations.
The e-book is broken into 5 categories:
part one: Your World
part two: Your Home
part three: Your Self
part four: Your Relationships
part five: Your Dreams
I related so much to this book, my kids are four and seven. My son won’t even give me kisses anymore and gives me half hugs. He also plays in his room a lot and isn’t hanging on my leg anymore for attention. My daughter goes to preschool and really enjoys playing individually. I now actually have time to read a magazine or even read a couple chapters of a book.
I quit my job to be at home with my kids. I miss adult conversations and having stronger friendships. I look forward to going back to work when they are both in school full time. I need to think about what I really want to do. I get to re-think of my dreams for my life and put more effort into myself and relationships/friendships.
In Beyond Baby there are challenge checklists each week to help you get back on track and follow the steps of the challenge. The workbook is such a great resource to use as you read the book and participate in the challenges.
Are you beyond baby and ready to put all of the baby toys away and start to refocus on you?
