Yes!! I never realized how much I value and need time to myself---silence, space, solitude---until it was gone. I think that's the hardest part of parenting for me. At the end of the day, I'm ready to just tune out, read a book, or soak in the bath, but DH wants to chat, cuddle, and reconnect. It's so hard for me to balance my need for solitude with the needs of my marriage.
