I think that it's NOT okay to NOT have a life outside of being a mother.  Too much of anything (including your precious children) is a bad thing.

Uh yes of course. You were a person before you had kids, and will be a person after they are doing their own thing. Never lose your identity behind another person - child, spouse, doesn't matter who it is.

Yea just because I became a mother does not mean I stop being me. I still have friends. I still go out with them from time to time. It is perfectly fine.
