No guilt trips here! Brooke Burke-Charvet wants her fellow moms to know that it's okay to be selfish every once in a while. In fact, she recommends it. 

The Dancing With the Stars alum, 44 — mom to four kids between the ages of 7 and 15 — tells Us Weekly that she makes it a priority to take time for herself on a regular basis.

"I think 'me time' for parents, especially for women, is super important," she says. "It's almost impossible, but I carve it out…I think it's invaluable for every parent."

Two options? Date nights and workouts. "I explain to my kids that mommy's important too, and i need a little me time, just like I give you your time," she tells Us.
