Sometimes people burn me up when they laugh or joke about me needing a brake from "mommyhood" as I call it. Hard to express to married people or others in general that I love my two sons but If I don't get mommy time, I think I will go nuts! Granted, they are mine, I made whatever mistakes that lead me to be a single mother but it doesn't mean that we don't deserve a time to hear our own thoughts and do what we like. I went on leave from my everyday Army job for about 3 weeks. Great to be away from work, but I had my kids with me from start to end, from this state to the next and back to mine. People as me, how was my leave and I say it was okay or nice...I like being with my boys, but I like being able to miss them too. I was dying for some alone time while i was on leave and really didn't get any. When I expressed on facebook how i needed time and a sitter, not many of my friend replied to that and I felt that 2 were mocking me. I just want to vent to someone that understands the love of a mother, but yet her personal wants and needs that we hardly ever ahere to. Tomorrow is a training holiday for us Army folk but daycare is still open(thank God), so I will be dropping off my boys and my plan is to get that much desired alone time! Hope it goes as planned..the last time I had a real fun evening or day to myself was in feb, work and TDY missions to other countries do not count...time away but its still all military stuff and thier rules...I know I can't possibly be wrong for feeling like this....
