Bad Mama

I know that I am going to regret this later, but tonight I have to ask your opinion on something. Am I a bad mother for leaving my child sometimes with my husband or Godparents so that I can go and have fun and not be a mama for a little while? I mean, because of the feeding situation, I can't leave Roob for more than two hours, but I have at least two weekends in the next 3 months where I am leaving town with friends and Goldie will stay with Davey.

Am I a horrible mother or am I just wise enough to know that if I don't take care of myself I will be a miserable person and a bad mother?

Not a bad mama at all. Not even a little bit. The way I see it, if you don't do something for yourself once in a while, you'll start to resent you life (not the baby because of course not). Don't let anyone guilt you into thinking you're a bad mom. Screw them all and have fun. :)

You are a good mama! I think it's a really positive thing when children see their parents do things for themselves. It shows the child that while we are parents, we are people too... with lives!

Party on Wayne!

You're not a bad mother, you're human. Its hard for us not to get so wrapped up in the life of motherhood. Its easy to put ourselves last all the time. But in order to remain SANE we need to get out w/o the kids now and then. You'd be a bad mom if you were sipping on a Margarita WHILE breastfeeding! lol

Get out, have a few hours of being a woman and not a mom. Have fun and don't feel guilty for living for yourself.

Of course not, you'll proably be a better mother becuase of it. I am a strong believer of it takes a village to raise a child. It's so good for kids to learn from all kinds of people and if there mommy is there ALL the time, they don't get that chance.

Enjoy yourself.

You are a bad mama if you DON'T do things for yourself. It's important for kids (and husbands) to see their mama having a little something I call a slice of her own life. Sometimes moms need to be off the clock. Go in peace.

I love that show Jon and Kate Plus 8...such a cute family. She said something on an episode that i thought was brilliant..that you get away and do something for yourself so you CAN be a better mom. If you don't go, than that really only hurts you. And that's just not cool.

Have you been listening to the "negative folk"???? You know who I mean?

Damnit,Girl! Go Have Fun, Booz it up, Have some "K" time,(like your friend said...Time for yourself = be a better Mom!) Dave & Goldita will be fine!

We do need to teach our kids that. I am learning that My Mom could have been better at that!

Look in the Mirror and repeat after me.... "I am good enough and smart enough and doggone it, People Love me!"

No Go, and stop talking about my friend like that, Your Most juiciness! :)

Ra is your friend!

You know how on flights they tell you to secure your oxygen mask and then put one on your child? Same thing. You have to take care of you so you can take care of the kiddos.
