Model Rachael Finch is making Mommy Blogger headlines right now after publicly stating that her daughter goes to her grandparents EVERY. WEEKEND. I’m definitely not one to judge…that’s not at all what I want to do here. To each their own and if that works for their family great.
But in my opinion (come on, you knew it was coming)…even if I had that option I wouldn’t. Yes, Moms and Dads need breaks. Yes, we send our kids to my parents once in a while to enjoy a night out, a quiet meal and a sleep in. And it’s lovely. But every single weekend? I think that’s a bit much. If both parents work, when would your family time be? I like taking the kids to gymnastics on Saturdays, or splitting up and taking a kid or two to get groceries with me. That’s our down time. Our time to enjoy the cottage, or just kick back and enjoy not having to do the school run or make lunches.
Let me know your thoughts!
You may know Rachael Finch from her stint on the Australian version of Dancing with the Stars or from her third place runner up finish in the 2009 Miss Universe Pageant. But even if you haven't heard of this mom and model, you're bound to think of her every Saturday morning after hearing how she spends her weekends.
