Im 24, and single. I like going out and having fun with friends and i wish i had a babysitter more often, then i feel bad like moms shouldnt want to party and take off for a few days. I had kids early i dont get to party like my friends do. Bow that their older i try to get out more. Not to mention the dating is soo tough.!

Looking forward to the kids being older & getting time to do what I missed in my 20s!

 Hi and welcome to the group.

If your child's friends have sleep=overs, that is the perfect time to get away and go out with your friends.  Good luck

Don't feel bad, I have our nanny stay at least once a week so I can go out with my gf's, the way I see it is when my son is at school , I'm working and then on the weekends I'm usually taking him to basketball, karate, play dates or birthday parties so it's only fair I get some me time as well.

I'm 23 with two children, been married for almost 7 years. We already had everything like that out of our systems before we had kids.

I'm 19 with a 1 year old. I've gone out 3 times since he was born. Theres nothing wrong with wanting to go out and hang out. Sometimes we need a little break from being full time moms.

Nothing wrong with going out with friends. No one stops being a person when they become a parent. A happy mom is a good mom!!!

There's nothing wrong with going out sometimes and having fun as long as you leave them with someone responsible. Go out and have fun, but make sure you aren't too drunk or whatever when you get home in case they need you during the night and that you are able to get up early and do what you have to do when they get up.  As far as taking off for a few days, on rare occasions that's ok too. Moms need and deserves breaks. IMO it doesn't make you a bad mom as long as they are taken care of first.
