So I was talking to one of my many crazy cousins. We were talking about splurging. I said once a year I splurge on myself. Something that I dont need but really want. Well apparently that is selfish. In her words "A mom should never spend money on herself outside of the necessities. You should spend that money on your child instead of being so selfish."

Umm, really? All year long my DD is spoiled. I cant let go once a friggin year? 

Anyone else have crazy relatives who think along the same lines?

Yes. But you know what? They can suck eggs. There is nothing wrong with pampering yourself. Just because we are moms doesn't mean that we should back burnered and forgotten.
