Do you take mini-vacations from being a Mommy? Like going away for the weekend?

I don't because I don't think I could be away from Trey that long

My mini-vacations include meeting a friend for lunch or taking a couple hours to go shopping. I don't need a whole weekend away at this point.

I haven't been on vacation in years!! I go out occasionally with friends, but I haven't done that in months. I'm due for a little night out soon.

Nope, though I did travel twice last year to Florida. First time was at the end of Sept. to testify in court and 2nd time was 3 weeks later when I went to help my sister when she had my new nephew. Besides for that, only vacation I get is every night when my children go to bed.

Oh God no! I worried about them too much when they were little like that. Noone could do for them like I could. Or so I thought. Now that they are 11 1/2 and 18, it's no problem finding me time. Or vacations.

NEVER! The first time I didn't put Brantley to bed was 5 weeks ago when Jonathan was born. I waited to have kids and now I am not ready to leave them.

i havent done it in a while but the last time my husband and i did, it was really good. we just left my daughter at my moms for the weekend and took off to a nearby town which is very peaceful (alot of park like settings, forest ect) where we got a hotel room and just relaxed. it wasnt much but we got the rest we needed.
