I get invited to so many girls nights out and women's evening networking events. Am I the only one who would rather be home with my children and husband at the end of the day? It means so much to me to feed my children dinner, to hear about their day and to be available to help with homework or talk about troubling things that may have happened in school. We run around like crazy on the weekends so we rarely catch up then.
Why does it feel like so many women are rushing out the door to "get a break" from the routine on a routine basis?
What about all the studies that point to the facts that our children will do better in school and on standardized tests, are less likely to become obese and are less likely to have problems with substance abuse if they have dinner with their families? Are people ignoring these warnings?

It's so mothers can get out once in awhile, socialize, meet new friends, old friends and have a break.
