that my course tomorrow has been cancelled and still have my parents look after the children?
Dh is working and I was supposed to be too but got a call today to say course has been cancelled. Mum loves having them (though whole day with 3DC's is rare) and as a working mum I guess I should relish the weekends?
Would it make a difference if I told you I was a CM and so am with mine and other children ALL THE TIME!!
Don't plan to do anything spectacular but would get to do a food shop on my own, catch up with the housework mumsnet , do some CM paperwork in blissful peace......
So should I be a selfish cow and still send the kids to my mums or tell her and DH its been cancelled and keep them at home......You decide!
Of course you should, you deserve time for yourself occasionally, if your mums happy having your children for the day why not, especially if you spend all week looking after other peoples children one of the hardest jobs I think there is.
I went out of town for the day! Did some window shopping, went for a "civilised" coffee on my own etc, bought some nice bits from M&S and had a picnic lunch in the car.I just totally enjoyed the peace.
No one ever knew-it must have been about 6/7 years ago when ds was a toddler and it gave me much needed head space and did me the world of good.
I think I may have done it too. Used to take half a days leave without telling anyone and just please myself. Children still had the usual childcare in place and I had a little bit of head space. Was fine, I think. Needs must, sometimes.
Oh, there's more. I've just remembered another one. I carried on "going" to a Saturday morning choir practice for a few weeks after it had finished because it was lovely to have a solo outing into town.
