I'm starting to get out of the "super mom" phase, where EVERYTHING in my life revolves around my kids. I've started taking classes, 2 nights a week, I've started going to the gym, Those two things I've started doing for MYSELF. They make me feel better about myself, they make me feel better period. My 5 year old, flips evertime we go to the gym, she has fun when she's there, but she starts a war to not go, then tries to make me feel terrible after the fact that we have gone. Today I was in tears and just didn't go, I'm tired of fighting. My husband feels bad for her, like I'm being selfish. Now... I stay home with my kids, when some moms have to work, and not see thier kids for 8 hours, what's wrong with me taking time out and working out for one hour a day? What should I do? Or do you think I'm wrong and selfish?Answer Question

Could it be that she doesnt like one of the workers, or the timing is off for her.
I think you SHOULD go... Im a HUGE proponent of exercise and feel moms... specially sahm NEED it for our sanity.
At 5 she is old enough to give you a reason she puts up a fight.

Wether you work or not, parenting is a hard job and there is NOTHING wrong with you taking a little time to workout or take a break to do for you... Your husband needs to not feed into your child's insecurity.
