I love my kids, but I also love doing things without them, like girls' night and date night with the hubs.
I love my kids, but I also love and feel fulfilled by my job and the non-living responsibilities that I tend to outside of them.
I love my kids, but I also love being alone in the car sometimes, aimlessly roaming town in a clean vehicle listening to my choice of music.
I love my kids, but I also love going to fancy restaurants, ordering a porterhouse and not having to share a bite with any of them.
I love my kids, but I also love being taken care of, having my needs met, wants heard, and all of my dreams realized.
I love my kids, but I love other things too.
And THAT'S OKAY.
It doesn't make me a bad mom; it makes me a normal one and a good one at that.
