Between working full-time, having two young children, and a plethora of other commitments, I sometimes have trouble finding “alone” time. Perhaps you can relate.
I’ll never forget one particularly long Saturday afternoon, when my patience was wearing beyond thin. Still in my pajamas and covered in filth, I decided to call up my go-to baby sitter: the Disney channel. I parked my kids on the couch, and as soon as they were adequately mesmerized, I instructed the eldest, “Keep an eye on your brother…I just need a few minutes to shower.”
