I will admit I am a sneaker. I have sneaked in some Suits and Pretty Little Liars. My favourite sneaking spot is in the car pool lane at school and at the gym. I have giggled out loud on the treadmill while sneaking episodes of Santa Clarita Diet. Why do I sneak? Mainly I need some me time, but mostly it is so I can catch up on the shows I don’t want the kids to hear or see. 🙂
Canuck moms have spoken: 95% of moms say that they had more time for themselves before motherhood, and now, over half (58%) admit to sneaking in TV “me-time” while juggling a busy schedule, with some even hiding from their kids for just a moment of peace. With moms doing it anywhere and everywhere in the neighbourhood when the kids aren’t around, sneaking is the new bingeing.
So smuggle a tablet into the bathroom for a little GLOW during your morning routine, but be forewarned: distracted makeup application may result in a look as bold as one of the gorgeous ladies of the 80s. And if you find yourself overstaying your welcome in the grocery store parking lot watching The Walking Dead, don’t feel guilty. As long as the ice cream doesn’t melt, no one will know your little sneak-ret. Be the life of the party with all the pop culture knowledge you’ll accumulate sneaking—your friends will thank you for talking about something other than the kids. If anyone questions your motives, let them know that according to a recent Netflix survey moms are feeling less stressed and more refreshed and even 16% say it makes them feel like a better parent by sneaking “me-time.” And dads, don’t feel left out. We know you need a break to sneak too.
Sneaking is a fine art that is meant to be perfected, so let the pros show you how it’s done. Real moms Cat & Nat are here to say they are proud and not ashamed to be Mom Sneaks, and break down the nuts and bolts of how they get their sneak on.
