Yet palm your kid off to the mil for 2 nights every week so you can have a shag-a-thon with hubby and you're mother of the year!
It's interesting how we all judge differently... Yet the same
Meanwhile I'm packing DD's lunch as I'm palming her off to my dad tomorrow so I can selfishly do a cooking class 😜
I think having alone time as a couple on a regular basis is very very important. And seeing as this Rachel person (who even is she anyway??) doesn't see her husband much through the week, I think it's even more crucial that they organise alone time. But tbh two nights a week is a bit much IMO, I think it does seem a bit selfish. One night a week IMO is ok. But then I also love spending quality time with my kids, as our weeks are so busy, so a free weekend night with my kids is something that I really cherish! Going out to dinner, or a movie, or a night walk at the beach... all the kinds of things that we don't get to do through the week. I wouldn't be giving that up too easily!
As for the OP- yep I judge, but I don't go and rant and rave to the person in question. That is just rude.
My point was that yes plenty off people need to work fulltime but everyone defines "need" differently. I'm not going to judge what another family wants to do.
I'd never give my kid or kids to the grandparents every weekend for 2 days. I'd never consider it, but if someone else does, good luck to them. If they want to give up that time, it's their choice.
