What do you want?

I saw this question asked on mamapedia the other day and it really got me thinking.

I would do anything for just a day all alone. No cleaning, no cooking, no chasing tots, no husband, no coupons, no nothing. Just 24 hours of time that I could do whatever I please with. My chances of that happening are pretty slim, and with a new baby possibly arriving early in May, the chances are super slim. But that doesn't take away from dream, right? Oh a massage would be nice too, but I don't want to get to greedy.

Well in thinking about this I begin to wonder, does this make me selfish? Does wanting a day completely alone make me a bad person? Is it wrong for me to deprive my own mom of being with her adult daughter and granddaughter because this momma wants a break? What do you think? How do you handle the multiple generations of motherhood on this day of celebration of being a mom?


  1. I don't think its selfish at all to wanna spend the day alone, heck we all do!! I think its important for a mom to have time to herself show she can recharge her batteries,so to speak. And I think its sweet to spend Mothers day with your mom, as I haven't since I was a kid. I think espically nowadays you aren't guaranteed to see the next one spend that one day with your mom and then have your day another day???

  2. I have no idea what the answer is, but I'd also do anything for a day to be with myself and no responsibility!

  3. I don't think you could handle a full 24 hours alone lol. I think you would miss your family way too much. That's how I am anyway. If I don't have Jensen I have mini panic attacks, and constantly feel like I am forgetting something, even if he has just gone to the store with my mom or husband for an hour. But maybe a few hours of alone time would do the trick!


Tell me something Fabulous...
