Just curious how often fellow Moms take some alone “Mommy time”? All together my FH and I have 4 kids 3 with some sort of special need. I feel like I don’t get enough “mommy time” I’m a stay at home Mom and on occasion I get to run to the store by myself which is rare maybe happens 1 time a month and it’s usually to get something grocery related and it’s for a short time (the grocery store is 5 minutes away). Otherwise I am with kids ALL the time even when I get my nails done about every 2-3 weeks I take my daughter with so she can have 1 on 1 time with me so it’s not so relaxing for me. I feel I need more out of the house time. My FH doesn’t seem to understand my need at all. I try to explain although he works during the day (he owns his own buisiness) at least he is away from screaming children and when he needs to run an errand he simply can just go do it with out worrying about bringing the whole gang with. Even when he is home I do ALL of the parenting except for maybe some discipline at times. How time do you get? Does your SO understand your need for the time?
My FH is also going to FL from Sun-Thurs for the 3rd time in a matter of a few months to work on a house we just bought. I’m really jealous that he gets to go and be kid free when I said that to him his response was “I’m going to be working so it’s not a break” but in reality it is.
