I don’t think there is such a thing as an equal balance between mom life and a social life. I think it’s a matter of finding a healthy balance that works for you. Mom life will always dominate a social life, but that certainly doesn’t mean you can’t have a social life. Instead of going out once a week, you may just get to go out once a month (if you can get a family member to watch your kid(s) or hire a sitter that is).
Last year was my first experience seeing Bassnectar for New Years Eve. And since that moment, I couldn’t imagine ever spending my New Years Eve any other way.
