Much NEEDED girl time!

At church Wednesday night us girls were sitting at the table chatting about girl time and how once a week we should all get together and eat or just hang. As a mommy, I really don't feel like I have that girl time. Then I thought to myself.....I don't even have time to paint my toe nails (not even a full paint job, I mean a cover job! Jutst painting over the old polish.), and especially not to just HANG OUT. I honestly feel guilty about it (girl time)when I do get a chance to spend sometime with the girls. I find myself thinking about what Kennedy is doing, the laundry that needs to be folded(that's on my couch from last week!), the bottles in the sink and many more things. I normally end up not enjoying myself and worry about everything else that's going on at home. I'll call Adam like 5 times and by the 5th time he's getting mad and then i'm getting upset! By the end of the night i'll just wish I would have stayed home!
Well, tonight i've learned that I just need to relax and enjoy myself a little. Sometimes we need each other to lean on! I forget i'm not the only mom! By chatting with my friends tonight i've learned we all have similar situations and we're all looking for that shoulder to lean on! We as women understand each other! I mean we didn't go to far.....we went just to a local restaurant where there was some serious BAD koraoke going on. So, have a girls night every once in while, it really does some good!!!

I totally agree with you!!! I didn't leave Avery home with his dad for me to get out at all for the first 8 months - then I got pregnant with Lauren. So again, home for 9 more months pretty much! NOw that I have the two of them and it's been 9 months since Lauren was born, I NEED to get out! I went thru the same guilty feelings, but phew, I feel recharged and fefreshed after a night away for a few hours!!!!

You are so right, but I am the same way I always say I need girl time...but I end up feeling guilty. BUT we really do need it every now and again..even if it is a dinner or a lunch. It does in the end make you feel better and relaxed..and it make you appreciate your babies and hubby!!! I love you sissy!!!!

You are exactly right! You don't need to feel guilty at all about spending time with your girlfriends.

I always felt like I came home a better wife and mother after having some "girl time".

I'm glad that you had a good time!
