"I'm a mom, I don't GET alone time!" - says almost every mom everywhere, but when alone time doesn't organically present itself, it's time to carve some out for yourself. Whatever it takes! "Sometimes you just have to grab a good book, lock yourself in the bath- room, and disappear for a few minutes," says wife and mother Hope Sims of Westchester County. "When I really have time, I like to go to the spa for a massage and a pedicure." Finding alone time can be even more of a challenge for moms that work outside of the home. And then a few minutes to one's self might be used solely to catch a little more shut-eye. "If I get alone time, I use it to catch up on my sleep," working mom Crystal Shue of Orange County says. If paying for a babysitter is over your budget, try setting up a Me Time Co- Op with a small group of your mom friends. Each co-op member would be responsible for watching everyone's kids once a month while the other moms enjoy some much needed me time. Sticking to a strict schedule of when your kids go to sleep - and most im- portantly, in their own rooms, is also important to ensure that you have a little time to yourself to read, watch TV or to zone out, after they have peacefully gone to sleep.
