I really hate it when people give me weird/cold looks when they ask me where my kids are and I tell them that Mommy needed a break. Its usually the ones w/out kids. Its like seriously? Until you have kids dont judge me pple! Here I am a single mom raising 3 kids doing the best I can. So yes sometimes I need a break. I dont think theres anything wrong with that is there? My kids have food, clean clothes, shoes, a roof over their heads, beds to sleep in and lots of love! Thats all they need! Rant over.

Hell no, there is nothing wrong with needing a break. I was married with only one kid and I needed a break once in a while. LOL

LOL! Mommies need me time! Its not like I leave them with strangers. They either go to my moms or my brothers! And they love it! I never force them to go. They ask me alot if they can go! I love them but they can be a handfull sometimes! LOL!

Getting a break actually makes you a better mom. You get your batteries recharged and puts you in a better place than if you ran around with empty batteries all the time. 

I'm not a single mom, and still needed time for me. Makes you human. 

Judgy people really irk me.

Everyone needs a break sometimes. And I bet after your break you go back feeling better which in turn makes you a better parent.

There's nothing wrong with having a break.

I had a friend that was all judgy when it came to motherhood and she didn't have kids.  She was one that said she would never let anyone watch her kids.  Now she has 4 and her 2 year old is barely with her.  She dumps him onto her other friend any chance she gets.
