The importance of a girls weekend — FranklyStein

Girls weekend afterI always feel a little guilty about taking a weekend away from my family. I don't like leaving the sporting events and kid schlepping all to my husband (although these days, the majority of them drive). I also feel bad missing their events and a little like I'm shirking my mom duties. But there's something pretty special about a girls weekend.
