Sometimes I want to go out like once a few weeks ... Or maybe take a trip to the store alone. I feel so guilty though. My kids cry at the door while I'm driving off. They are 5 and 1&1/2

Awww...you shouldn't feel guilty. You deserve some time to yourself and you should take it. They will be alright :)

Thanks. My mom is no help.. She texts me rude stuff like 'hope you're really going to Walmart and not so and so's'
Since my accident in august I'm just almost back to normal.. I've been with them every day for three months. So yeah..I do need to breathe some days

I am new so first of all Hi!!! I can def agree with the guilt as a new single mom it is hard to get time alone to myself. Just last night I went out dinner with an old friend for the first time in 8 months. I came home to my 9 year old waiting up like a parent lol. Its not bad I think to go out or even run to the store alone but what to do with feeling guilty...wish I had an answer. Maybe as time passes it gets better.

I feel the exact same way! If I go take time for myself I feel like a bad parent! You're not a bad parent though...it just goes to prove that you're a good mom!

That's easier said than done lol. They go to their other relatives sometimes but my youngest doesn't really like to go over there

I used to feel this way, but after going to school and working I've found that time apart makes me a better mom
