Mom guilt is a real thing. In my experience, it seems to hit when I finally find time for myself without my son. Now I stay home all day every day with him except next week he will start at preschool 4 hours 2X a week. But my point is there is not a reason to feel this guilt about having a date night and calling a sitter (his grandparents). He will have a good time with his grandparent’s bonding and i should be enjoying my bonding time with my amazing husband. This mindset is not going to allow for the peace that i intended when setting up some alone time. So how do you help these thoughts and feeling go away?
Make sure you and your children feel secure about leaving
Try and focus on what you are doing at the moment
Remember why you decided the alone time was desired
