A few times a year, moms need a break. And I'm not talking about a coffee break, a trip to the spa, or a girls' night out kinda break. I mean a break break -- where you leave town for a few days without the kids and remember what it's like to be an adult again.
And I know what you're thinking: Leaving the kiddos is tough, mainly because it stirs up all sorts of unnecessary feelings of guilt -- either because you feel horrible for wanting to be away from your kids, or because you're afraid they will miss you so much they'll cry their eyes out for the entire duration of your little getaway.
But guess what? Neither of those things is cause for feeling guilty. They'll be just fine without you for a few days, and leaving your kids does NOT make you a bad mom.
