  1. I absolutely love your take on this because I FEEL THE SAME WAY and everyone thinks that I’m crazy, haha. But something deep in me just isn’t like everyone else with that need to escape all the time. I went on a vacation without my daughter and I absolutely hated it and people told me that I would get used to doing things without her and the thing is, I don’t want to get used to that. She’s my baby. She’s my family. I’m so glad that another mother feels the same way because i was starting to think that I was the only one. Thanks for not making me feel alone 🙂

      You have no idea how much it means to me to know someone else feels this way! I feel like people get upset with me all the time but I can’t help it… I want to be around My kids haha I only have a few more years and they will start school ….. I’m soaking every moment up

  2. I SO TOTALLY AGREE! I wrote a post about how I didn’t want to leave Hudson and how people were telling me I needed to leave him for a night and I was just like NO I LOVE HIM. I want to be with him ALWAYS. I miss him when he NAPS! haha

  3. We never left our kids and if we couldn’t bring them figured we didn’t really need to go. Do what make you comfortable and don’t worry about anyone else.

  4. I too often say that I need to get away, and I have now that my kids are older. But to be honest, when I am not with them, it’s worrisome for me. I do not blame you nor do I think others should. You are happy and there is time for you to get away and be alone. You are doing a great job!

  5. This is something I got a LOT of flack for. I wanted nothing more than to be with my babies. Above all else, work and vacations and even date nights felt like a sacrifice. No one else in my circle seemed to understand this drive. I am not sure where it came from, I also had a broken home, but I am not sure that’s 100% the reason. I think I am just madly in love with them. And that’s okay, too 🙂

  6. I totally get it! My children are 10 years apart and my older son is almost 13 and spending a lot more time away from home. His absence makes me hold onto my toddler that much tighter. No matter where I go, my baby is with me. The thought of my oldest son going to college in less than 6 years frightens me and I try and spend as much time as I can with him.

  7. I honestly feel the same way a lot of the times! I always feel guilty when I do soething without them or I end up talking about them the whole time lol…I want to have me time.. but when I do, I want them with me! lol I’m kinda crazy!! 🙂

    I am the same exact way. I never want to leave mine and even on days when I need some alone time, I will have my husband take over for an hour or two while I run errands. I still find myself missing them and wishing I wouldn’t have left.
