Man I feel this so hard. Life with kids sometimes (lol... all the time) feels like Groundhog Day. One thing that’s helped us is that each of us gets one night a week where we can do what we want and sleep in the next day. That’s helped a lot make me feel like myself. Sometimes that means I’ll go to a cafe and read or watch a movie alone. I desperately just need some time alone. We’re lucky that we have family nearby so we’re able to do “date nights” once every month or two. It should probably be more but right now I need time to myself a little bit more...

Love this! We just need to do a better job at prioritizing any time for ourselves - whether that's alone time or time for just the two of us. It's so hard to do when it is Groundhog Day. I guess it's something that the mental load of preparing to do something outside of your normal routine when it's easier to just stay in your groove.
