Slow Saturdays (late again): Time to let go

Slow Saturdays is a weekly challenge related to slow parenting. The challenges are intended to break down a large project into smaller, more manageable pieces. Try it for yourself. You are, as always, encouraged to post comments. Tell us your story.

This post is late because – gasp – I’m having a weekend away from the kids with just MJ! Aside from having to pump breast milk since I’m still nursing Banana, it’s been great to escape the routine of home. I’ve nearly finished a novel and I haven’t done any dishes in 24 hours.

The Challenge – Considering that I’m away from home, and on the heels of the recent post on Letting Go, this week’s challenge is about finding time for yourself. Maybe this means only an hour out of the house to go for a walk. Or, it might mean you arrange to have an evening out with friends. Or, perhaps time to do something that you love to do that you haven’t had the time for because of children – like going to a coffee house and reading a novel! Whatever you choose, it can’t involve children and should ideally be out of the house.

I’ve also decided that I am going to post a poll each week so that we can see how many readers complete each week’s challenge. Here is a poll for last week’s challenge….
