i think you should leave the spots for working mothers.. your at home how much more of a break could you need? cant you do that stuff on the weekend?
Sorry but I am really offended by your comment, I can tell you being at home with a 17 month old 24 hours a day 7 days a week is hard work!!!
I went back to full time work when DD was 4 months old, I then quit to be a SAHM when she was 10 months. And I can tell you now, being at home is just as hard if not harder, at least at work you get a lunch break, you can have an adult conversation and you can go to the toilet in peace!!!
I would not change being a SAHM at all, I love it, but it is far from easy!!!
To the OP, I left DD in day care one day a week when I quit work because she loved it, we have since moved and she is no longer in day care, but she will be starting again when #2 is born in a few weeks.
I did find that Fridays became my busy day, by the time I did everything I wanted to do without having to drag DD around with me!!!
So no I don't think you are selfish having your children in care one day a week!!!
