Mommy-Me-Time

 

By Sari Eitches, MD

My first mother’s day all I wanted was 2 hours alone. I went to a yoga class and got my hair done. I even took a shower. Alone. With the door closed. It was exhilarating. Every Sunday since I do something similar- a work out and a treat- and return to my family more content, more present and more patient.
