Invited out with work colleagues this evening. Really really want to go but.......

I worked sunday evening
worked monday evening.
working tomorrow evening.
Then I am going away for a week (without family!!!!!!))

So would it be unreasonable toditch the DDs this evening?

I'm feeling it probably would. But I want to go.

How old are DDs?

....poor you...decisions...I think you know!!!

I personally think that YABU. And I'm a big fan of freedom without the kids.

Who will the DDs be at home with?

Eeeek hate those moral decisions. How old are your DD's?

(Obviously only if you have a babysitter/ DP grin )

DDs 13 and 15 would be at home with DH.

I also need to track down some trainers for DD2 which would involve driving back into town (where I've already been today, then home, then back again for evening out - 15 miles each way)

I won't go but I still want to. and DD2 is not in a good mood and is going to whinge and moan and grumble all evening.

Working late means I see them in the morning before they go to school at 8 - I don't get home before 10.15 after they are in bed.

I just think.... they might be missing you a bit if you've been working and then going away.

Go! They are teens, their father is there with them.... they dont need you to put them to bed or feed them smile

I wish I had your stamina grin to even think about going out when I was late ............ I bet you end up staying home but the DDs ignore you and just go on Facebook (or whatever teenage girls do) all evening !

Jesus, at their age, every moment NOT seeing my parents was bliss.

Ragwort Tue 13-Sep-11 17:22:51

I mean working late blush ..............

not working late today Rag - hence feeling morally obliged to spend quality time fighting with my children as I will only see them for an hour tomorrow morning - then going away thursday (FOR A WHOLE WEEK OFF!!! WHOOO HOOOOO!!!!)

KittyFane Tue 13-Sep-11 18:07:39

I know you've said you're not going but I take back my 'GO!' if you are going away THIS Thursday - are you working late tomorrow? You wouldn't see them at all!!

I didn't go. I have been a good mother (for once) been to get some trainers for D2 and a bottle of wine for me.

sounds like the best option!!! they might not need you to do stuff for them...but they still need you! Enjoy your week off!!!!
