My first priority as a parent is to my son. I’m not denying that nor am I wishing I didn’t have him, but there are days where I wish I could just drop everything and go out with some friends. I am a single mum and my 2 year old only goes to his dad’s every second weekend, which are great don’t get me wrong. Lately I have been feeling very isolated and lonely and i know it’s not their fault, but i hate seeing pictures or Facebook posts of their fun nights out while I’m stuck at home with a grumpy toddler. I want to be there with them, singing karaoke or having dinner. I want to not have to worry about not getting my son to bed by 6. I want to not have to be mum for a night. It’s selfish as hell, but i just need to be able to feel like a woman and not just his mother because that’s not the be all end all to me. Sometimes I need to feel important too.
