Am I pathetic?

When my husband and I get a night alone it feels like we should be up making whoopi, talking, just hanging out, etc but all we want to do is sleep!!! Is anyone else feeling pathetic like me?! (I know Im not really pathetic, just feel it)

  • You're not pathetic. You should try to do something with each other when you have that time though. That is your time to re-connect.

  • You aren't pathetic, you're a mom! :-)

  • Welcome to a relationship where you have 3 young children. NORMAL!!! You'll get back to hot and heavy when the kids get older.

  • Nope, just have kids and a busy life. Completly normal.

  • Yeah, we do the same. If someone has the kids for the night (or we get them to bed early) we would probably go to bed early... sleep is our friend!

  • Ya know I think I have just accepted that at this time in my life things are the way they are for now.If I get time to myself I really just want to hear,"silence", but we usually get a movie from Block Buster & watch it after we put our kids to bed.& thats our evening out @ home.

  • me and my hubby put the kids to bed at 7 so we get a few hours of alone time every night (it fixes that problem)

  • lol when our daughter was first born we were like that.. she was a couple months old when she spent the night at grandmas for the first time... we were like we can do this and this and this ... we ended up having a pizza and going to bed early... lol sometimes it just happens that way
