Any mom of young children will tell you, your “me time” pretty much disappears when a baby appears on the scene. From the day your child is born you want to spend all of your focus, all of your time all of your everything with the newest member of your family; and that’s the way it’s supposed to be!
Your new baby, your child and children are the star of the show.
But, every so often, you wish for just a little time to steal away.
Recently, I was asked to think of the most shameless excuse to escape for some “me time,” and I thought way back to when my kids were really little. I thought of when I’d go to a doctor’s appointment, for me, on my own, by myself. It could be a well visit, a cold, it didn’t matter. I’d listen to grown-up songs on the radio on the way there and back. I’d bring along my coffee, my book, and sit back and read; even if it was just for a few minutes. I’ll never forget (and this is a true story) the physician’s assistant coming into the room and seeing me sitting in a chair, in my johnny, reading a book, drinking coffee. I looked up at her holding her blood pressure cuff, and said, “Take your time. This is my Me Time.”
I will say it’s gotten easier as my children have gotten older, to enjoy something on my own.
Every day with my lunch I have a little treat, just for me: a little bit of Lindt chocolate; either a couple of pieces of my favorite salted caramel chocolate bar or a couple of their fabulous LINDOR chocolate truffles. The truffles are my absolute favorite, because of the center! I find them to be totally irresistible; you can’t eat just one! Luckily you don’t have to.
And guess what?
I just found out: LINDOR has a new flavor: milk chocolate truffles with a caramel milk chocolatecenter!!!
I’ve had them.
The caramel center literally melts in your mouth; it’s so smooth.
The next time you’re looking for a little treat just for you, give the new LINDOR caramel milk chocolate truffles a try!
