This will be no vacation

I have been a SAHM for over 2 years now, and have had no breaks. I love it but have recently become very overwhelmed, tired, stressed and sad. I need a reset. My husband is taking me to the beach for a week, and i feel bad saying it, but it wont be a real relaxing vacation because our son is coming with us. While i am happy for this, our first family get away, it will be battling a 2 year old, smack dab in the middle of the awful terrible two's. It will be a different background for the same crap. I am doing my best to keep a good attitude about this, i know we will have some fun, and make some great memories, but dammit! Im feeling selfish and just want a damn day, or two, or ten to myself.

Have you had a vacation away from your kid(s)?

Nope. Never. To me vacation is all about family. I would feel very weird going without him.

Can't hubby take over the kid duties while you are there. I love when my husband is around, he completely takes over.

I haven't had 30 minutes away from my kids in over 2 years.

I had a weekend getaway when my kids were 5months; and another when they were 9months. But I'm sure that won't be happening again anytime soon. I hope you enjoy your beach vacation!!!

I did when my kids were 9 and 11 - I took DH away for a long weekend for his 40th birthday.
