Divorce is not a way to turn your now ex-husband into a babysitter so you can have ‘Me’ time
I think the title says it all. I’m seeing far too many women discover that they can get a divorce, and have many days ‘off’ from parenting.
These women are divorcing perfectly good husbands and ruining their kids’ futures for NO REASON.
Parenting every other week, or getting ‘weekends off’ is not something you should be proud of.
Here’s the deal…when you become a parent (hopefully a stay-at-home mom), you are not going to have time to do anything you want. That’s just the way it is. You know that going into it. But here’s the deal…you get to have kids which is THE BEST THING EVER.
Do you think I’m stupid enough to think I’m going to be writing books while having a baby(ies) or toddler(s) around? No! It’s not going to happen. And that’s okay.
It’s ok not to accomplish ‘Things’ in this world because raising good, strong, healthy, moral kids is more important.
This post was inspired by a facebook post from a recent divorcee talking about all the spas she’s visiting on her ‘off from parenting duty’ days.
Ugh! Come on women!
I know we don’t have family to help us raise kids anymore, and many women work full-time. But that’s why it’s so important not to work full-time when you have children and to figure out creative ways of getting some alone time. It’s also why you want to raise your kids to be ‘quiet’ and sit still so when you are with your children they don’t drain your energy.
