No! Why should I feel guilty? I dedicate so much time to everyone BUT myself, it will never be the other way around, I could never feel guilty over it.

I am a crappy wife and mother when I am burnt out. My husband and I always take a few hours a week alone, and some time as a couple whenever possible.
It's the same as taking care of a car. If you don't perform oil changes, put gas in the tank, and keep up with the maintenance, even the best car will eventually break down and be useless.

Nope. Never. I miss them, sometimes I think I should have just stayed home cause whatever I did was lame... but never guilt for doing something for myself.

Never!

I do a lot of "me" time - or I did, before DD2 was born.  DH encourages it.Two years ago I went to London and Barcelona to visit my cousin.  I was gone nearly 4 weeks.  DH and DD1 survived just fine.

Love this! Never thought of it this way before.

Takin time for ME makes me a better person/mom/wife for THEM. I would never feel selfish about doing something positive.
