Does this make me a bad mom?

If you are going to be rude dont answer please.

I am 29wks pregnant and im tired. A friends is going to take my 2 kids(2yrs and 10m) for 2 days starting tomorrow. Does it make me a bad mom to say i cant wait. I never get a break i dont have any family to help and this person only takes one or the other ever 4m or so.

  • No, it doesn't make you a bad mom, just a smart one. Everyone needs a break every now and then, especially when we're pregnant. Take it easy and have a good time! :)

  • Completely agree with the first poster. Every good mom knows when to say she needs a break, and looking forward to it is just like looking forward to a mini-vacation (even if you don't go anywhere!) I feel the same way sometimes when my MIL comes to get Kaylee for the night. Its nice to have some time to yourself and collect your thoughts for a moment.

  • I agree with the previous posters, please don't feel bad for being human! We all need a break, rest up and don't feel guilty!

  • I agree, it makes you a smart mom. I just had my mother take my daughter for 2 nights last week, and felt the same way. Then of course as soon as I dropped her off I didn't know what to do with myself. Be sure to get some rest, and don't spend the whole time cleaning like I did!
