I guess the difference between me and most women my age is I chose this! My son was wanted and planned. my husband is not some guy I met then got knocked up by, but he's my best friend of almost 10 years.
Well with that said I am not one to leave my children easily... I struggle with not feeling guilty for wanting a night out with my husband alone. So when I see women who aren't dying to be with their children ALL THE TIME, I am confused. Call me judgmental, say what you want. I simply feel like when babies are as young as mine they need me more then I need a break... But don't get me wrong I DOOOOOOO need a break from time to time (and that's normal), but that is what "Daddy time" is for, or being spoiled rotten by their grandparents =) I just can't relate to a woman leaving their children for any other reason besides 1. Needing to provide their children with financial stability (ie work or school) 2. Maintaining a healthy relationship with your spouse. 3. Needing a break occasionally, but really, all the time is not cool in my book... Then again I am a mother first and everything else follows.
