    Here here! I love this. And I do think every one of those mom’s would agree with you dream day plans! Self care is necessary for sanity and necessary to be a loving mom. Thanks for writing this!

      thanks! I think so too. we probably all try to say the “right” thing {like I did} most of the time! I wish I had the guts to be honest back then 🙂

    YES! I am only 6 months into this motherhood gig and I would have been so happy to hear your honest answer! I love my kid more than anything but man do I long for the day when I can actually get more than an hour or two to myself. Thanks for sharing!

    I think you hit it on the head when you mentioned that most mommas do want perfect days with their families, because I think we all do. But we also all NEED those moments by ourselves. I’ve been finding that, for the mommas around me, many women think that they will be admitting weakness if they confess their need for those times alone, or they feel guilty for having thoughts of doing things by themselves. But it is something that we need. Here is a post that I wrote on the exact same subject: http://survivingtoddlerhood.com/2015/01/19/dear-momma-dont-feel-guilty-fight-mom-guilt/
