Do you take time off from being a parent to just being a wife, partner or just a women again?
From the beginning my husband and I have taken some time off from being parents and spent time together as husband and wife. My side of the family is more than happy to take our wee monkey once a week over night so we can do something just the two of us.
I never felt guilty or bad for doing that but I hear a lot of mums and dads saying that they could not spend a night without their baby especially when they are just born. I know that he is in good hands and having lots of fun when he is with my parents or siblings, and I get some rest so I think that it is very important for both sides.
What do you think about this and do you take time off?
