I'm a 25 year old mother of two boys, 8 and 4. I had my first son when I had barely turned 17. Before that, my mom was overprotective of me in my point of view so I didn't really ever have a girl's night out or something similar. I've dedicated my life to my boys and taken care of them. I don't like leaving my boys just to anybody so I never go out. It's really hard for me to ask anybody to babysit. I would like to go shopping with a friend for the weekend just me and her because every time I try to go out to buy some clothes for me I end up buying things for my boys. By the time we come out of the store everything in the cart is for them. Now that I want to go with my friend shopping for the weekend my mom starts saying comments that make me feel like I'm a bad mother and she makes it seem like I don't want my kids. Is it really wrong to want a weekend off?
