    I have not had a full day to myself in YEARS.  I honestly don’t know what I would do with myself- so I get what you are saying.  We also had vacation 2 weeks ago and when people asked how my vacation was I said- “well, a vacation with a 2 year old is not much of a vacation”

    Yep, Mommy guilt is the devil. I get twinges even now, and mine is a teenager. But it’s in your best interest to let go of the guilt and take care of yourself. Even if all you do is lounge on the couch all day in peace and quiet, it’s worth whatever guilt you may feel.

    @urchin:  Good for you!  DD is only 16 weeks and I still try to make it a point to have a teensy bit of “me” time every now and then.  I feel like I can give more of myself if I recharge my batteries, so there’s more of me to give, ya know?
