Do moms feel guilty about having fun without their kids? My mom used to feel guilty if she, my dad, and brother did something fun while I was at a friend's house. Is this normal?

Its normal to feel that way sometimes. As a mom I sacrifice everything and anything for my family so if I am having fun with out my kids I feel guilty cuz I should be giving them that fun. However my husband and I make a point to make sure we have fun together without them sometimes. I think it keeps us saine! Lol!

Yes and no. When my husband and I do things without our boys I feel bad that they aren't experiencing the fun with us. But I also soak up the time alone with my husband and have fun just the two of us. We usually do something as a family before him and I get any chance to go off alone anyway!
