working mom's

I'm supposed to go out this weekend for a few hours, i'm feeling so guilty about leaving him, because I work full time. I feel like all my free time should be spent with my little guy but at the same time I feel like I just need a little break. Anyone else feeling like this?

    I can understand where you are coming from.  To be honest, I had to go back to work when DS was 6 weeks old, so I've been back now into my 5th week.  I have yet to do something without him just for me.  I have taken my older DS to soccer pr

  • I remember feeling like this with DS1. But you are right. You do need a break!! And you and DH need date night.
