  • WHY does your DH follow you to the potty?? LOL! I'm lucky. My toddler still takes two 1 1/2 hour naps a day. Every time I sit on the toilet alone I think, "I LOVE peeing by myself!" LOL!

  • I wish for time alone all the time. I have a 6 month old who doesn't follow me, but it seems like i never get a lot of time to myself. Especially since i'm a stay-at-home mom, there's a pattern to my day everyday....boring. i wanna get a job

  • I think all of us Mommas are in the same boat where we just need a bit of ME time. I don't get a girls night out and my hubby sometimes follows me into the bathroom he says it's maybe he can get a look ( You know what I mean)

  • i would love a break. i am a sahm and hubby doesnt believe in babysitters, no matter who it is!! and my mil is unqualified to be a parent.... both her kids (dh and bro in law) where raised b thier fathers grandparents for the most part....mine live in California while we are in Texas....

  • he follows me in because he also thinks he will get a peek. he says its cause we dont get alone time together. but i told him well if u would stop playing ur video games we would get alone time

  • I ALWAYS need a break. Our youngest (3) has been with my mom for the last 4 days. It was a great break!! Was able to sleep in and get a FULL nights sleep without having to do toddler potty breaks at 4 am. :) He's home now and I've missed him a lot. I don't think he'll be leaving for that long again.

    It's always nice to have a break every now and again from the kids.

  • oh ya my mil will take my ds (3) for over nites everyonce in a while. but only when he was completely potty trained. she wont take dd(2) because she isnt potty trained makes me crazy.
