3. Play a game of hide-and-seek. When it’s your turn to hide, sneak out to the minivan and go for a drive.
2. Schedule back-to-back dentist appointments. Then ask the doctor if you can spend the second hour lying on the chair by yourself.
1. There’s always Benadryl.

Any other moms out there craving peace and quiet once in a while? How do you make time for yourself in the midst of life’s chaos?
