That's a really good point, sometimes I think I let my kids be a security blanket as well.

It's a really great idea to start taking consistent time out for yourself w/o the kids. I think maybe using that as a baby step will help you eventually feel less guilty when you buy yourself something fun with extra money. As another poster stated, you need to make sure you're getting some time to yourself and that you're being filled up, or else you'll eventually snap!
