One of the hazards of being a SAHM is staying home day in and day out. The routine can get to you. And the constant proximity can frustrate you and your child. Have you noticed how even your darling baby sometimes prefer anyone over you?
Air to breathe. Space to grow. We all need that. So us Moms, we need time away. If only to get pedicures or a massage. I don't super stock up on things sometimes just to have an excuse to go out. Even for only an hour or two.
But like what I commented on a friend's post, the best part of being away is coming home to a child that missed you.
