I need time to myself. We joined the YMCA. Our membership comes with free childcare as long as I'm in the building.

I don't get anywhere near the time to myself and breaks from the kids that I need.
However, I am surviving and adapting. As they get older it is getting easier for me to be in a separate room for up to 20 minutes at a time. They are getting better at taking breaks from each other too.
My insomnia also give me opportunities for time to myself
I know it will continue to get easier for me to steal a few minutes alone here and there as they get older. And one day, I will be able to go hours between anyone needing me.
I would not want them committed to being gone most of their waking hours, 5 days a week, 9.5 months of the year....that is way more break than I need or want. I would miss them and wonder how their days were going.
For now it is hard at times but they will not be young forever...I want to soak it up while I can
