    I need to get out of the house at least every second day, not to be alone (DD goes everywhere with me) but just to get outside. I get bad cabin fever.
    I need my part time job (2-3 days per week) as it's pretty much the only time I'm around other adults.

    I need bubhub

I just don't have the time or energy to be constantly entertaining?

    so I guess, I need my space.

    I need down time.... Once ds is in bed at night, I'm off duty, and anything that wasnt done - waits till morning. That is my time for movies, a bath, relaxing etc.

    I need chocolate.

    Sleep.

    That's not as a mother, that's as a person... but I'm a selfish, cranky jerk without enough sleep.

    I also need time on my own. I am someone who enjoys solitude and some days I just have to tell DD that I need her to just leave me alone for a short while, or else I will get cranky at her, and that she doesn't deserve that, so she just needs to go play on her own for a bit. I need a little peace and quiet, or I snap.

    Time away from the house where I can be a person and not a parent just for a few hours. I can handle being without other adults, but I need a few hours a week to myself.

    My work. Sleep isn't an issue for me, I've got good little sleepers and have adjusted to having that little less sleep in any case. The only other thing I need is the love and support of my husband and kisses and cuddles from my boys!

    I need time alone to recharge, time to not talk to anyone. And I need tidiness. If the house is a mess and I have to talk talk talk, I get exhausted and stressed and overwhelmed. A couple of hours is enough time for me to spend with another adult.
    So yeah those needs don't go too well with the demands of motherhood lol.
