Because I can't stand being away for too long from my son? I mean, work enough is taking out roughly 10 hours of our day, so adding more hours for other activities is definitely a guilt trip.
I see other parents who have night out at bars, or the like, and I often wonder how they feel about it.
Hubby and I still have our date nights, and it's usually with a cutoff of 10PM. Haha! Anything longer than that, I start feeling agitated, and will always want to go home.
Some parents can also take trips abroad or outside their home base, leaving their child/children at the care of yayas, or grandparents, or relatives, and I wonder too if they ever feel guilty leaving their child behind. Maybe in the future magagawa ko yon, but not now when Rocco is still a baby. I have this huge separation anxiety when I leave him for too long.
Siguro it's just me, I don't see anything wrong with their setup naman. It's just that I can't imagine myself going somewhere place for too long and leaving Rocco behind. And by "too long", mga 24 hours lang yon. Baka maloka ako.
Just my thought. Walang kokontra :)
