From one mom to another

Got a question out there for you moms.  Have you EVER since you had your babies had time away from them and your signifigant other?  I haven't.  We have had a many of baby free nights and weekends, thanks to our parents.  I have had many of Hub free trips (with the baby = not a vacay) while he worked or what not, Hubs has had multiple baby & wife free trips, so what am I getting at?  I want a turn.  Don't take this the wrong way, and if you do you obviously must be wrapped in the beard of God and massaged by tiny unicorns day after day with your husband and kid.  I on the other hand, am not wrapped in any magical, unicorn, massaging beard.  I live real life.  Life where cooking, cleaning, and momma-ing is never put on the back burner.  Life where I literally do not sit down on the couch until my baby is fed, bathed, and jammied up.  Where dinner does not cook itself and I have 4 episodes of Gossip Girl, 3 RHOBH, 4 RHOA, and 134 Horders episodes in my DVR.  All I want to do is get up on that couch in my raggedy ass sweat pants and my ripped grateful dead shirt and watch all the t.v. I want.  I want to eat junk food and drink wine and know I don't have to wake up at 8 on a Saturday just so I don't feel guilty for leaving hubs with the babe all morning.  Well my wish is Hubs command cause he is taking Little Macon for the weekend.  THE WHOLE WEEKEND.  And now I feel sort of guilty.  What the hell is wrong with moms?  Why can't I feel relieved, excited, and over the moon about sushi with girlfriends and gossip?  Guess it comes with the territory.  I can't believe I am nervous for them to leave me.  Funny the way that works.  So while they are traipsing through the woods at the hunting camp eating junk food and playing with nature I suppose I'll probably end up drunk and sad that my family left to cross off a bucket list item without me.  This mom shit is crazy. 
Be good sweet girl.
I know these two will have a blast, they always do!
Happy almost weekend guys, wish me luck!


  1. Sarah, you deserve it. Every mother does! Don't feel guilty. We as moms are 24-7 kids, house, work, husband, chores, errands. I know you will miss your fam, but try to make it about you and have lots of wine, downtime, dvr, sushi, snacks, and sleeping late! Cause it won't be happening very often!

  2. That sounds like an awesome weekend! Have fun!

  3. Get on it dog gone it! I had my first vacation since the boys last month. I went to nyc for 4 days & ate, shopped & slept & it was absolutely wonderful!!!! Of course I missed the babies & my honey but I NEEDED a time out. Sit around the house all weekend & enjoy your time out. You DO deserve it:). love to y'all XOXO
