Is it normal to be upset that everyone is out having a good time while you're at home with your child?

my friends all went out last night and my sons father is out on his motorcycle today while I am home taking care of our son...I need a break, a night out (his dad works nights)

That's one of the joys of being a parent, is that when everyone else is out having fun, you have to stay home and take care of the kiddos. You need to schedule a day for yourself, and make sure that your child's father understands that is his day/time to watch his son. If nothing else ask a parent or other relative if they would mind watching him for a day, or if all else fails find a babysitter.

Most little dudes love to vacuum - so hook him up and let him have at it. Heck, I'm gonna go vacuum the yard - just cuz it's such a good idea.

Welcome to motherhood! That's the way it is! Before you know it he will be grown & you'll be like me wondering where the time went!

Absolutely normal. But guess what? That is the price of motherhood. The good news is, they grow up. But please believe me as long as you are alive, they will find you, they go away and come back and bring other people with them. i. e wives, husbands, children. You will be a mother until the day you die. Unfortunately that's not in the instructions. :) NOW, tell daddy you need a break!
