A mom can catch a break without enlisting the help of her partner or a babysitter — all she needs is the phone. Whether you miss your friends or crave adult conversation, you can have both in the comfort of a pair of sweats on your couch.
Blow off the dishes and let the laundry pile up. Once your children are sound asleep, grab a glass of wine and dial a friend's digits for some uninterrupted conversation. Catching up is a great way to reconnect with those you care about and if you have a cell phone plan with free nights it may not cost you a dime!
