Sneak Away Sundays (#1)

Standard

Thank you all who sent in stories! I had such an awesome time reading through them. I am so excited to start this new segment on the blog. I will feature 2-3 stories every Sunday (posting this one a little early as I have a busy day tomorrow), so feel free to continue to send your stories in (see details below).

Enjoy!

Hey SingingWithTheVolumeUp,

I love, love, love to sneak away! I have 3 crazy girls at home. Even if it’s just to the grocery store, or Walmart. I always walk around the entire store & sometimes stop at others just fore that little bit of extra time. It’s a great way to clear your head.

My most common sneak away is in the form of running errands. If I need to go to the grocery store or Target, etc., I will do it at a time when it is convenient for J to stay home with E. Oh, I run the errands alright. But I swing by Starbucks on my way out, grab a bite to eat somewhere so that I don’t have to share with anyone, run the errands and also stop in that store I’ve been eying for a while….you get the point!

My most guilty “sneak away” doesn’t actually involve me sneaking away; it’s me SENDING them away! “Hey, you should take E to play with M. It will be fun! Invite your friend too.” Both J and E are occupied and mommy is free to do whatever she wants….or nothing at all!

Sneak Away!

You know those days you just need a break from your kids??!!! I recently spoke with a mom that took a much needed break from her tiny tot and to hear the rejuvenation in her voice was healing for me!

Today I went to ran errands as my husband watched the baby. Usually I rush to get back but on the way home I stopped, got a ice cream cone, and just sat. It was the best dang ice cream cone!!!!

Then I got to thinking I’m sure a TON of moms..and dads…do this…sneak aways for just a little break. Send me your funny stories and I will feature them on my blog. To submit a story follow guidelines below:

1. Email swtvolumeup@gmail.com

That’s it! Can’t wait to hear these stories.
