me time

by rantywoman

A woman I know told me recently that raising her child is actually easier now that she and her husband have split up.  Unlike before, they now have time to themselves to recharge, so that when each one is with the child, they are a more enthusiastic and attentive parent.

This same woman works a lot of weekends but recently had a Saturday off and believed it was the first one she’d had to herself since she’d started dating her now ex-husband.  Which was about, I don’t know, fifteen years ago?
