Hey all,

Is it selfish of me to take a break at the end of the day to watch some tv or do anything for myself without being constantly asked of by kids and husband?

NOPE. Maybe you should leave the kids with your husband (if you're lucky and he's home) and get out of the house so you actually get a break.

I would go with it depends. If you expect them all to leave and not speak to you no matter what, then kind of. But if you just want to sit down and relax, then of course not. I try to have my alone time before my kids are up and after they go to bed. Other wise if I need a few minutes I just excuse myself to another room, and ask them to give me some time to myself. There is nothing wrong with that!

NO it's not. Staying at home can be so stressful. Yes you're a mommy and a wife but you also have to remember to how to just be YOU!!!

lol, no! I think its a huge part of staying sane. Its healthy for your own mental state of mind to just have a break to unwind. =)
