Pretty sure I actually squealed with excitement when @MamaofAllTrades announced she was going to do this link up.

Sometimes, it’s super tough living with three boys. [Don’t even act like the husband doesn’t count.] Don’t get me wrong – they make me feel special every single day. But sometimes I wish they’d just be quiet and let me read my book. Even for 10 minutes. And M is great with that. When he’s home in the evening from work, he’s more than happy to send me off to bed early so I can read [or sometimes just rest].

More often than not, my #MeMoments come when I get up in the morning and get on the treadmill. Running is something I do mostly for me. Of course I want to be healthy for my family, but it’s something that makes me feel better about a lot of things, and it gives me time to think through things I can’t really focus on when I have two [three] boys trying desperately to get my attention.

I didn’t run at all last week, but I plan to do it this week. I need that stretch of time in the morning. I know I’m a lot more pleasant to be around when I do, and my boys appreciate that.

Linking up to Mama of All Trades #MeMomentMonday.
