So this weekend my husband and I will be celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary. To celebrate, he is treating me to a trip to Las Vegas. While I definitely am enjoying this fun and much needed get away, I can't help but feel a tinge of "mommy guilt". This is a feeling that I am very familiar with. Whenever I am required to be away from my boys, be it for work, a getaway with my husband or an outing with friends, I always have this tiny sense of guilt for leaving them. I know that even moms deserve a break every now and again, but I can't help but feeling like I need to be with them 24/7.
Now I know that most people don't associate Las Vegas aka "Sin City" with kids (unless you think of all the kids that were probably conceived here), so bringing my boys really wasn't an option, but that doesn't mean that I don't wish they were here. Even though they may pluck my last nerve and make me want to pull out my bundles, they are still my boys. My head will tell my that I deserve some "me" time but my heart will still say that I need to be super mom at all times. Can any of my fellow moms relate? If so, how are some of the ways that you deal with this feeling? Leave me a comment and let me know!
Anywho, I am going to try to enjoy my little getaway and post plenty of stories and pics while I am here. Check back throughout the week to hear all about my trip!!!
