My parents have had LO for almost a week so that his daddy and I could work things out between us...and I could get my house clean/organized. SO and I haven't really talked, but things are better anyway and my entire downstairs is clean :) Now just gotta get upstairs done. LO's daddy is missing him, and I doubt if he'll be able to go past a week without Bug. haha Last 2 nights we've drove half an hour one way just to give Sebastian kisses goodnight because his daddy misses him. It's so sweet <3



And yes, I miss my son like crazy and can't wait for him to be home...I just needed a break from being "mommy" so I could be "girlfriend" for a week. So don't give me crap about having my parents take my son for a week. They wanted him and we needed the break

A week without your child to clean the downstairs of your house is a bit much. Especially since you and your boyfriend accomplished nothing. A break is normal. A week is excessive. You need to learn how to balance everything or drop things. And it looks like your boyfriend might be worth dropping.

. . . >_> at least he misses him? ^_^;



but yah I agree. I mean it's nice and all what you're trying to do, but really. A day would be good not a week.



and if you expected anything less when posting this on BG you must be new.

I know a week is a lot for not getting much done...and it sounds like an excuse, but my boyfriend and I have both been super sick and it was a disaster down here. And we haven't talked about some of the stuff we need to, but things are better between us. He's actually listening and respecting me, and helping me out which is very nice. And I'm making a conscious effort not to strangle him. So it has helped, but not in the way we thought

You haven't had your son for a week? What in the? Just so you can play girlfriend for a week. Must be nice. But then again, I couldn't do that. Not even to go on vacation.

This...
A week off from your son to "work things out" (which you said hasn't happened) and clean part of your house is excessive. Do you plan to have your parents come take him every time you and your boyfriend argue or you need to get some cleaning done? You need to learn to balance your life. You're a girlfriend AND a mom now, not one or the other.

I couldn't imagine going a whole week without my bubby. Especially without a good reason. :cry:

Man if I had a baby sitter for a week I'd be on one hell of a vacation or it wouldn't be worth it to me.

Exactly what I was thinking. The 2 nights I spent in the hospital having DS2 killed me. I can't imagine a full week to "clean and work on things" :?

a week?? and you ONLY got your downstairs cleaned...........what else were you doing? It only takes me like 4 hours to clean everything...and that is like DEEP cleaning things....I could never imagine being away from my child for a week...weird.

What issues have you two been having? Its good to have a break once in awhile. I wouldn't be able to spend a week away from my son mentally. I can't even do that for more than an hour without getting paranoid & he's also EBF though.

I am hardly ever on here but why do you seem to be such a b***h in all the posts I see you respond to? You annoy me.

haha that's kind of what I thought...didn't really expect him to miss him honestly.
A day wouldn't have been enough...for cleaning or figuring out things with SO. He works pretty much every day from 9am-1am so I can't really talk to him most days
And I'm fairly new I guess...been on here for about a year. And I knew I was gonna get crap...just figured I'd try to stop it lol
