  • No, it just means you are tiered and want the rest of the night to yourself. I dont get that excited but only bc i go to bed when my kids go to bed. Ok i guess i do get excited about going to bed. I love sleep, but no it does not make you a bad mom, wee need our alone time to and we only get that at bed time.

  • That makes you human, your time to play starts when they go!

  • Sometimes I love that feeling, esp after a long day. Just being able to lay on the couch, let out a long sigh, and turn on the TV!

  • LOL..... I usually am the same way. But my son went to a birthday party and then a sleepover last night and I missed my little monsters.

    Plus between teeth brushing, jammies, books, last minute bathroom trips, etc bedtime can be exhausting

  • Nope, it makes you a perfectly normal mom. I think we all need breaks now and then and most of us don't take them. Something my mom told me was to go out every once and awhile and take time for myself. It is something I have done every since my kids were little and it has helped me so much.
