How many mama's

how many of you feel the same as i do when it comes to wanting to have at least one child with you almost all the time. I am a SAHM and my husband works 7 days a week, 10hour days so i am with my 4 boys (ages 6, 4 1/2, almost 3 and 10months) pretty much all the time. When i do have one of my firends come to the grocery store with me and we dont all have to go in, i at least want one of my boys with me.......it seems like if i dont have one with me i miss all of them. Does that sound dumb....or am i just a weird mom. I CAN go places by myself...its just weird when i do because im so used to having them around.

  • It doesn't sound dumb. I only have one child, but let me tell you I might miss my kiddo but I understand some alone time is healthy.

  • I do have some alone time, but not for long periods at a time....i guess i will get that soon enough when all 4 boys are in school.
