20 Something Moms 20 Something Moms

How often do you 20 something moms go out?

Posted by   + Show Post

And I mean go out so you can go out and party and drink with your friends? Having to leave your children behind so you can drink yourself stupid and go bar hop or club hop? I cannot stand reading all these status updates on my Facebook from these mothers that are going out every weekend or sometimes during the week leaving their babies of course at home so they can do these sort of things. I feel so guilty even asking for a baby sitter and its hardly ever to go out and do those sorts of things. My husband has friends that still go clubbing and I cannot stand it. I just put up with it so my husband doesn't feel left out. They leave us out a lot because they know I don't like that stuff and I'm sure it bothers my husband but let's grow up. I'm 26 and he's 27. I just think those people are a bad influence and not very good parents.

Rarely ever. Well, I don't go out and get drunk at all anymore. But I rarely go out and just hang out with the girls. I did a few weeks ago and it was a good time. Dinner and drinks and we were all ready to go home around 12. We're all moms.

The hubby and I will sometimes get  a babysitter and go to the movies and dinner when it's close to bedtime for the kids. That's not too often either.

No judgment here, I praise you. I judge my husbands friends that go out twice or three times a week leaving their two kids with their disabled grandma in a wheel chair and make him feel bad for leaving him out... He needs new friends.

Exactly. Though it's a rarity for me, I'm a single mom.

Drinking and partying? Never.

Going out with girlfriends to movie or dinner? Once a month

Once or twice a year. But I go to the movies with my cousin or do something else fun at least once a month.

I have 2 boys and my SO & I go out at least 2 times a month alone. we do dinner, drinks, a movie , a bar whatever mood we are in and there's nothing wrong with that and we most definitely deserve at least one evening to do what we please. Our boys stay with their grandma ( she even asks for them,we don't ask her) and they are in bed before we go out just in case they would want to come home. Its okay to drink occasionally , that doesn't make you a bad parent!

Read my other comments. I'm talking about certain mothers on my FB that are going out twice or three times a week leaving their kids with unreliable babysitters. Of course when you are going out responsibly it doesn't make you a bad parent.

Like I said before, yes, we are more than just wives and mothers. But I put motherhood before anything. I don't need to go out drinking three times a week away from my sons and husband to keep my sanity.
