I'm a SAHM of 5. Every once in awhile I need a break from being mom. I know that doesn't make me a bad person so why do I always feel so horrible?!

Do you take time away from your child/ren?

 Oh yes! You got to take a break if you don't you would lose your head. :) My daughter will be going to preschool next month. I am trying to wait for my breaks when she is in school no drinking though not big on that. :) But do have one every once awhile.

Yes, I take some time away from my daughter... I don't drink a lot but when I do want a glass of wine it is at home after she is in bed or something like that. A lot of my me time is after she is asleep in bed.

I get at least one girls night a month. I'm in need of a date with my husband. We are going to a concert in a few weeks.

I get a break a few nights a week when all of my kids go to bed at bedtime (7pm). Other than that I might get to go out with dh 2 times a year without any kids.

I go for a drink with friends. To get out of the house and a break from the kids. I don't feel bad when I do. Mama needs a break. lol Luckily they have gone to the same place since they were born as far as a sitter goes that is there grandma. She is very close to the boys. But yea, I have a drink and relax. I like kareoke lol

ugh you bet!... when she spends the night with her dad. A happy mom is a happy child and you need YOU time from time to time...there is nothing wrong with that. Plus you deserve it.

I really feel like I could use a little time to myself. I get a break from my son at work--but it's definitely not the same as a girls nite out. I'm pregnant right now, so no drinking for me. Still have another 4.5 months to go.

Thanks ladies. Glad it doesn't make me selfish to need time away. I used to have a glass of wine once the kids were in bed but I'm nursing my now 9 month old who refuses a bottle so drinking I don't get to do. Man, a glass of wine would be nice tho. Heck even a bottle or two of beer. Ha Just something that equals "grown up time". DH and I just had our 9yr wedding anniversary and it was just another day. We live outta town away from family.. =0/
