My best friend and I are taking a four-night trip starting on Sunday. Just the two of us!

I don't feel guilty about it at all. I think that having time to be an individual and pursue friendships is a healthy part of being an adult, and yes, a mother too.

My own mother gave me shit for it. She doesn't get it at all and implied that I was being selfish and abandoning my kids. 

I am taking a family vacation next month.



Would you go on a "girl's only" trip even if you had kids at home? 


BTW we are going to spend two nights in Eureka Springs, AR and two nights in Memphis, TN.

My mom did the same thing when she found out I was going out of state to visit my best friend. We are best friends and see each other every 6 months. My mom said that I was "abandoning" my kids and that I should be at home with my kids.

I just ignored her and went anyway and had a great time! It was a much needed break.

Hell yes.

For my BFF's birthday a couple years ago, we went to San Antonio for the weekend. We had fun. She got plastered (I was pregnant so I didn't, lol)...DH had DD1 and they had a fun weekend together!
