all alone

Hi, My name is Ashely
Sometimes I need a small break.
What girl doesn't.
I love my babies and hubs more than ANYTHING.
but some alone time is needed to stay sane.

Anyone who tells you otherwise in my mind is a liar.

I thought of this on my way to the store the other day. 
I was all alone. Jayson was kind enough to watch the kiddos while I went out for milk and bread.

I think he could tell I needed to get out and clear my head.

What was the first thing I did when I got in my car you ask??

I turned on the music so loud the car was shaking.
-well maybe that's a stretch of the truth-
but nevertheless it was loud.

What was I bumpin you ask???

Yes, a little techno.

It was fun...

but when I got home and Ty threw his arms around me I remembered listening to the Gigglebellies in the car is way cooler than blastin techno.

When The kids are asleep and I'm alone guess what else I do???

I sleep.

That's right. 
I'm lame. 

but to stay sane...I feel for me its necessary. 

What else???!!

I sometimes eat candy...Candy I know Ty would want...and if he were awake would beg and scream for it.
I eat it and know I don't have to share.


I also pee alone. 
Weird. Do your kids just walk in on you when you are going potty. haha
Ty sure likes too...


  1. Everyone needs a little alone time. When my girls nap I nap too & I can't totally relate to both eating candy without little beggers & going to the bathroom alone, what is that...both my girls come in

  2. Every woman needs a "mommy time out" :-)

  3. Time outs are nice, if rare. I love the picture on the side of you expecting, that's great!!

  4. I need some ALONE time. Just a little bit each day. In my alone time I usually go running or go to the store too. Crazy how much faster you get in and out of the store with out a little one huh! :) Sometimes you just need to clear your head. Totally with you on this!

  5. Alone time is definiely important! I don't have a husband or kids yet, so I don't know what it's truly like to have someone near you ALL the time, but I can imagine, and it seems stressful.

    I just found you through the Follow Me Wednesday Linkup. Can't wait to get to know you!


  6. Even though I'm crazy about my family, time alone saves my sanity! You have a beautiful family :)
    I'm your newest follower! Hope you "share the love"

    All the best,
