Did you know it makes me feel better knowing I am not a bad parent for needing a break from my kids now and then?

Do you know I spend a lot of time worrying about that and wondering if I could be doing better?

Why would you feel guilty for wanting a break from your kids? Don't you think they enjoy a break from you now and again? Did you know I send my kids one at a time to visit one of their older siblings pretty regularly?

Did you know just because you want a break doesn't mean you love your kids less ?
