I have the opportunity to go to a hotel on my own this Saturday. I would only be haa as of an hour from home. I would go shopping then get take away and a bottle of wine and sleep.
I have a 4 year old and a 4 month old. I haven’t been alone since before lockdown. My partner works away but is home. DD2 is bottle fed do no issues there but I have a niggling guilt.
I am an introvert and feel like no one is getting the best of me just now. Thoughts?

Oh do it do it do it! You are more than entitled to recharge your batteries! I mean you could always take me with you if you like grin

Go and enjoy the break. Your little one is bottle fed so your dp can deal with that. Just enjoy the freedom. Maybe get a bottle of fizz to celebrate the night, even a tiny one before the proper wine!!

Absolutely go .... Recharge, relax and go home rebived.
Everyone needs some down time

Do you want to? Will it make you happy?
If so, go! Don’t feel guilty!

I have a friend who has gone away once a year to a hotel on her own for 3 nights (near to where she lives) since her children were small. She loves it!

If it would make you happy do it. Sounds like bliss to me.

God do it, I bloody would.

Do it! I'd love this. I have a 6mo smile

OH MY GOD. I don't even have little tiny kids any more (youngest is 6) but I'd jump at that. With a baby at home it would be even more tempting.

That sounds bloody lovely. As long as your DH thinks it’s a good idea as well-do it’

Oh my word do it, I’ve a 5 year old and 13 month old and I’m so jealous.
Please do it, have a bath, relax, enjoy it and come back all refreshed!!

DO IT OP!!! I’d go in an absolute heartbeat (I’ve got a 3 year old and a 5 month old) if given the option!

Toilenstripes Wed 21-Oct-20 21:08:17

Go and enjoy yourself!

amymel2016 Wed 21-Oct-20 21:08:59

Make sure you report back OP, I want to hear about your food, how you’re relaxing and how good the sleep was!

Yes yes yes! Go for it and don't look back.

Sounds fucking amazing, definitely go, then come back & tell us all about it so we can live vicariously through you, thank you

Pollypockett23 Wed 21-Oct-20 21:14:12

Yes! Do it Op! You go gal!!! 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼

Honeyandapple Wed 21-Oct-20 21:15:24

Oh sounds lovely. I have 2 young kids and would do this, given the opportunity.
I am an introvert too and need space to be alone sometimes.

Don't feel guilty. Unless there's a real reason to.

Do it 100% ... And pay for late checkout, so u can sleep, or take a nice long bath before going home

Sexnotgender Wed 21-Oct-20 21:16:04

God yes go!! Enjoy.

Sparklesocks Wed 21-Oct-20 21:16:10

Sounds heavenly!

Goldduck Wed 21-Oct-20 21:18:02

This sounds like a dream! Go and have the best time, it will mean that you have more energy for your little ones when you come home so enjoy every minute guilt free 😊

QuestionableMouse Wed 21-Oct-20 21:20:16

God go! It'll do you a world of good. Don't forget some nice snacks!

lurkingfromhome Wed 21-Oct-20 21:22:55

I have no children and I STILL would dearly love to do this. A whole night of not having to make any decisions or do any chores and a huge bed all to myself. Bliss. Do it!!!
