Feel bad going out?

Does anyone else just crave some time out and then when you're out all you can do is think about being home with your child?

  • It's natural, I think it would be more of a problem if you went out partying and just did't care where your child was or with whom. I say enjoy yourself.

  • I do not go out often I have grad classes like one weekend out the month so if I do go out it is usually then because she is with my parent's. My S/O and I take that time and go out or I go out with the ladies. I don't feel bad because it is not often and I know she is in excellent care!!
