Hi all SAHM'S!
I just joined the community! =)
A little about me: I am 41, married, with a 3 year old (my first and only). I am a SAHM and have been since I was 6 months pregnant with my son. I LOVE being a SAHM and would not trade all the time I have been able to stay at home with my son. Though VERY difficult, I am blessed that I have had this time with my son. Where is the problem? I have been with my son 7 days a week, 24 hours a day since he has been born without so much as even half a day to myself, not to mention I am completing a bachelor degree and paralegal diploma at night when my son goes to sleep. I am living on (literally) MAYBE 2 hours sleep a night and have been going this way since he has been born. I do not have friends that I hang out with, etc being that I just do not have time for myself so I do not have that “relief” right now even.
My husband just booked me a hotel room for the weekend for me to spend by myself…I am filled with guilty excitement. Am I wrong for feeling like this? Mind you I know that I need it but I feel horrible for even considering it.
Looking forward to getting to know all you SAHM’S!! =)
