As a single mother of two young children, Phoebe Burgess sometimes just needs a break.
And in an interview with Who magazine on Tuesday, the Southern Highlands socialite revealed the clever tactics they used to get the well-deserved “me-time” away from Poppy (4) and Billy (2) during the Covid lockdown.
Phoebe, 32, who shares her children with ex-husband Sam Burgess, said she would lock herself up in the pantry for a breather while playing hide and seek with her children.

When asked how she manages to “find time for herself,” she said, “It’s just not that much of a reality for me right now, unless it’s a you or a squid game on Netflix at 10pm while my daughter Poppy snores like a snorer freight train next to me.
“If I lock myself in the pantry while hiding, I usually get a few solo minutes!”
She added that she has also tried to work in more “mommy time” activities that she enjoys doing herself into family days, with her current obsession with “scootering”.
“We’re together, we’re outside, but we’re still in our own little worlds on our scooters. I love anything that is an adventure with the children, ”she said.
Fun for mom and the kids! She added that she also tried to work in more “mummy time” activities that she still loves to this day, with her current obsession being with “roller-skating”.

She said that while she absolutely loves hanging out with her kids, being crammed together around the clock during the lockdown hasn’t been the easiest ride.
“I wouldn’t necessarily call lockdown relaxation with two high-energy, needy and adolescent children at any point in time!” She laughed.
Phoebe isn’t the only soccer WAG to admit hiding from their kids.
