    Default Do you get time at home alone?

    I have realised that my home alone like Macauley Culkin time is...NEVER!

    DS is always there when I'm home! He goes to preschool, but I'm at work while he's there.

    Do you get any home alone time?

    With a house of six people living in it, home alone time to date has been very rare, unless DH took all the kids out and left me home alone, however with DD4 at Preschool a couple of times a week now, I will have home alone time finally!

    I wish! 2 little people are with me every minute of the day...I am looking forward to dd starting kindy next week! It might only be 2.5days a week but I will only have ds...and when he has a nap, it's close enough to being home alone?

    Rarely. I work full time and DS is in day care. On weekends, we're always together (mostly my choice). Occasionally DP might take him out for a couple of hours to give me some space.

    Nap time is precious as it's my me time.

    Yep. Where I work is open 7 days a week so I often get a day or two off mid week. Plus all my kids are school aged, so no babies or toddlers at home. DH doesn't really get alone time at home, being a Mon-Fri worker.

    when the children were small, absolutely not. I did enjoy nap times, but that was as close to 'free' time I could ever have. Now I get to be home alone quite a bit, but usually my Dh is not far away. Time alone is very important, it is worth searching for, working towards. marie.
