I feel so guilty if I spend money on myself, I always think ...okay I can buy this for myself but I should just spend that money on the kids.......I so badly want to go get my hair colored and cut, it's been 4 years since I've done it but it's $60 idk if I can spend that on myself. :-(

Yes I do. I mean, if the basic needs are met I get a mani/pedi and won't think twice.

Yep, I get $100 per month to spend just on me. Occasionally I will something special for the kids but mostly I do spend it on myself. Starbucks, pedicures, night out with my friends, etc.

Yeah, I do. The kids have everything they need. Dd is 2 and currently has more shoes sitting by the front door than I have period, so if I wanted some new shoes, I'm gettin em!

Once upon a time around 20 or so years ago...

I only have 12 more years left until our youngest is 18.  I'll be 59 years old then.  My time will come again.

ALWAYS! Having kids doesn't mean you need to sacrifice things for yourself as long as their needs and wants are met. Get your hair done! :)

Yes, this mommy has needs too! Of course I make sure my kids needs are met and my bills first.
