Am I being selfish, when sometimes I sit and play with the children, but in the back of my mind, I am thinking how nice it would be to have some time to myself. Even just a few hours, one day a week.
Now don’t get me wrong, I LOVE my children very much, and I LOVE being a stay home Mum, but you are always going to have one of those days. My children are my life and my world, but sometimes, just sometimes it would be nice to have some time out.
They grow so fast, and I enjoy every minute with them, just watching them grow. I should enjoy it while I can, and I do. As one day they are not going to want to have much to do with me, they will be to busy with their own lives and things.
But just a few hours a week would be lovely, but I can’t see it happening just yet, I am working on it for next year though, you never know your luck.
My mother in law is wonderful and she takes the children when I have an appointment, or when I need to do something I can’t really take them to. But I feel guilty and rush home after the appointment. Not that I don’t trust her with the children, I just feel I should get back.
I choose to be a stay home Mum, and I love being able to be a stay home Mum, there are so many things that make being a Mum worthwhile. But just a few hours, and not feeling guilty about it, to not do anything special, just have a shower in peace, sit and enjoy a nice HOT cup of tea and just enjoy the silence.
I have to say though, when the children are not home, and I do manage to grab a couple of hours to myself, I really miss them. I know I am strange.
Do you think that I am being selfish?, Do you have the same feelings?.
