Give Me A Break
Did you know that 97% of moms say that they had more time for themselves before motherhood? Well, I guess that should be obvious right? Now, over 71% of moms admit to sneaking in TV “me-time” while juggling a busy schedule, with some even hiding from their kids for just a moment of peace. I have two places to hide in my house – one is the bathroom where I pretend to have “tummy problems” and the other is my bed so I can catch up on my latest Netflix shows. With moms doing it anywhere and everywhere in the neighborhood when the kids aren’t around, doing the momsneak is the new bingeing. I guess that’s better than the unhealthy vices (read: wine, chocolate) of the past. We are members of the Netflix #StreamTeam, all opinions are our own.
We are advocates for mom “me” time. When we take a moment to ourselves we’re better people. So we say smuggle a tablet into the bathroom for a little GLOW during your morning routine, but be forewarned: distracted makeup application may result in a look as bold as one of the gorgeous ladies of the 80s. And if you find yourself overstaying your welcome in the grocery store parking lot watching The Walking Dead, don’t feel guilty. As long as the ice cream doesn’t melt, no one will know your little sneak-ret. Be the life of the party with all the pop culture knowledge you’ll accumulate sneaking—your friends will thank you for talking about something other than the kids. If anyone questions your motives, let them know that according to a recent Netflix survey moms are feeling less stressed and more refreshed and even 19% say it makes them feel like a better parent by sneaking “me-time.” And dads, don’t feel left out. We know you need a break to sneak too.
