  • When my son isn't with me, I always feel like I am either missing something or forgetting something.

  • No. Not anymore. I used to feel that way though when the older kids were little. Now though, Im happy when I get my alone time.

  • husband takes my kids off to my in laws house about once a week just to let me relax and do whatever I want and it takes me the whole time to get used to the idea that the baby isn't with me...the rest of the kids not so much, but our little man is only 8 months so it's a constant wake up, feed, cry, play with routine and to not have to do any of that is WEEEIRRRD! lol

  • Yes I do, I am hardly ever without my kids, so the very very rare times that I am I feel very naked. Its like something is just missing from me. I even tend to feel like that when they are both taking a nap, since that is a rare occurance around here as well.

  • Yes I do feel alone without my son and I miss him dearly but I understand sometimes I need time for myself to re-group and just breathe.It makes me a better mom when I see him again. But I hate it and I always feel to cry when I'm leaving him..
