Ugh I want to go out and do things with friends but I feel bad when I leave my son.

Like I want to get me and SO tickets to Thunder on the Mountain ad to stay at the lodge for the weekend. BUT I feel bad doing things and leaving my son at home :(

I go to school and I work. I only have Sundays and Mondays off and Sunday is the only day he is the only kid here (the rest of he week my sis babysits) I just feel like I don't spend enough time with him. I mean literally all of my time is with except the few hours I'm at work or school. Other than that I'm with him until he falls asleep. That's when I do homework and stuff.

Idk just makes me sad :(

You just kind of have to find that balance. My parents keep DS regularly, and I still feel guilty sometimes. I definitely enjoy the alone time, and the ability to sleep and just go out or do whatever. But I feel like I should be spending that with him too. I'm sure you are spending plenty of time with your LO. And mommy deserves a break too! Don't be too hard on yourself. Maybe you can take your LO out to do something special before you go or after you get back to kind of make up for it
