Long gone are the days when I would feel guilty about leaving the kids at home with Dad in charge. I had felt guilty many times before about leaving my children at home and wouldn’t enjoy my time away. Since that time, I’ve made a realization. It’s ok to take time off for you! You’re not a bad mother if you get pleasure while on your outing. And, it’s ok to spend a little money on yourself (if it’s in the budget). Then, after you get back, indulge in a bubble bath or throw some soothing bath beads into the water. You deserve it.
We need to be recharged or filled back up so that we can take care of our families. So, you are doing it for your family. Be guilt free and enjoy yourself the next time you leave home alone!
