Me Time Vs Children Time

“Time spent on oneself means NO time spent on their children”

At least Victoria Beckham was being honest to the public. That she, does not have an army of people helping her to take care of her 4 children, that she too stays up at night and looks like a twig because Baby Harper hasnt learnt how to sleep through the night yet and the fact that she regained her pre-pregnancy figure 6 months after giving birth, as opposed to only 2 weeks like some celebrities…. is assuring.She is normal, just like me. Id love to know Angelina Jolie’s secret in raising her brood.


I have to admit. I too have a screaming need to have a ME time. I used to be able to pay a visit to Tjantek Spa anytime I like. Or have a meal at Secret Recipes whenever I feel like it. Now with Baby Zeeq in the picture and Mr Husband on his quest to become ‘locum king’,(pffttt..Photobucket)  I have to work my way around these 2 babies.

Compromise. Yes, that should be the key. Or should I add on sacrifice. Like, an hour of your locum time Mr Husband?


I can do without the visits to the spa or salon. What I need is that peaceful time to have a meal, a shower and even to solat. Perhaps allowing sunat prayers on top of the wajib ones.

Yes. it was a discovery I recently made. That while we can make time for our husband and children, it is only fair that we should also be given time to worship Allah.After all, it is from HIm that we ask for good health and extra energy to care for our families.
