How much free time do you think a mom has?

Um...yeah. It's not that much.'s a reason to pamper your wife on Valentine's Day.  Not that you don't work hard too, I'm just sayin'...Moms are sucked dry of free time and might need a little pamperin'.

When we moms are off work, we're busy getting water cups for the kids and changing diapers and cleaning up Legos before we step on them and send shooting pain through our feet, and if we have older kids we're shuttling them to dance practice and baseball practice and buying them new shoes because they're constantly growing out of the other size. Oh, and then there's mac and cheese to stick in the microwave and stains to get out of clothes, and inevitably somebody gets stuck climbing on something they shouldn't and needs rescued.

After all that, we have 17 minutes leftover. Cool! But doesn't that seem like an eternity? Seventeen minutes would be awesome! I think we have 5 or 6 minutes per day to ourselves, and that's only because we lock the bathroom door.

Have a great weekend!
