Each summer my mother in law takes my kids for a week, gives her some time to bond with the kids and some time for me to take care of myself. The week began last Friday (today is Tuesday), the kids have three more days at my mother in laws but my son (7) called me lastnight and then again this morning saying he wants to come home, he misses me and his dad and his toys... I have been looking forward to this week and my "me time" which finally began today because of work and now he wants to come home. One part of me hears him wanting to come home to be with me and I want to go get him but then another part of me is screaming because I NEED this "me time". Is it selfish to make him stick it out at my mother in laws? I told him that I need at least the rest of the day today and then maybe I will go get him tomorrow. Does that make me selfish for not going to get him now and waiting til tomorrow? What would you all do?
