Going backpacking in Europe with your best friend. Going on a cross-country road trip. Taking the summer off to just relax and travel. Going on a cruise Staying at a resort Taking time off of your job and just do nothing as a reward. These soundÂ fabulous don’t they?Â Obviously, in a mom’s world this is just a far fetched dream that could have been reality before becoming a mom but it’s definitely not in the cards for now.
