Being a parent is full of rewards for sure, but it's also a pretty tough gig. We've been asking mums and dads what 'me time' means to them and how they spend time off from parenting...
We’re still in a spin from our fabulous ‘Take a Load Off’ evening where a gathering of tired, hard-working parents came together to take time out of busy schedules to enjoy food, fun, games and the odd glass of wine all thanks to LG TWINWash. Prizes were won, new friends were made and laughs were flowing at the LG and HoneyKids event, where everyone was invited to indulge in lots of lovely ‘me time‘. But what does ‘me time’ mean to you as a parent? Is it grabbing a biscuit in peace while the kids are busy fighting over who gets the purple crayon, or is it taking yourself off for a well deserved facial? We asked all of the mums (and a few dads) who came to the party to tell us in their own words what the epitome of ‘me time’ meant to each of them. Here’s some of the ones that made us laugh, and a few that made us tear up too!

Prizes were won, new friends were made and laughs were flowing at the event where 'me time' was the aim of the game…#LGTWINWash #LGSingapore #TwoLoadsAtOnce #sponsored

“Tons of K-drama and SLEEP! Date nights with the husband and cafe-hopping alone with my laptop like I used to do before I was pregnant.”
“Being able to take time off to be fit and fab! Gym, run, drinks and travel.”
“Me time means sports on TV with a chilled pint in hand.” (We think this one *might* have been a dad!).
“Motherhood is great, however, you know your life has changed when going to a grocery store by yourself is like a vacation!”
“Me time = no smelly poo within a 20 mile radius, no screaming baby and the chance to lie on my bed watching Netflix.”
“After having a kid, me time has now become a DIY manicure during my child’s nap, a quick shower before he wakes up and a brief session of online shopping while his father changes his diaper.”
“It’s when I get it all in moderation – a bit of time with the kids and a bit of time with not a soul around me.”
“Spending more quality time sleeping and having an undisturbed toilet break. Do you feel me?”
“To roll out my yoga mat and let my inner diva prance around. And not being busy with housework!”
“Me time means using time to look at my daughter’s baby photos, plan her birthday party and reminisce the days when she was a tiny tot.”
And we can’t not include this one…
“Time to do whatever I want, whenever I want ALONE. Also a bit of self-pleasure without the guilt…PS: what’s the vibration intensity level on the LGTWINWash?”
