I am having a hard time...I have the opportunity to have a couple of hours a week to myself while my son goes with a trusted sitter. And I desperately want to take the time, but I am also feeling very guilty about the thought of dumping him off with a sitter just so I can be alone to pursue my hobbies. How do you deal with this conflict?
I am a mostly SAHM - I work, but due to our schedules our son is with a sitter only 2.5 hours per week. He is with me all day and with his dad in the evenings while I work. We purposely structured our lives to insure he was not in daycare, and now I am feeling bad that I want a little time off.
He is 20 mos old. I get very little time to myself because he is all about Mama right now...even if my husband takes him elsewhere in the house to go play, he will seek me out. I haven't read a book or picked up a cross-stitch in 20 months. I am longing for some quiet creative time!
