Do you ever feel as if you spend sooo much time caring for your children that you feel as if you don't show them you love them enough?
I know this may sound strange and I said this when my first son was just born too..
But sometimes I feel as if I spend so much time caring for my children that I don't actually sit down and enjoy them?! Between housework, diaper changes, making meals, I go to school full time (on-line, tho), laundry, and everything else that a mother's life entails. I mean I know I love my children(more than anything in the world...) But somedays, I feel like I almost rush the days, and they sometimes just go by without meaning. Don't get me wrong I spend time with my boys together, and seperately(when i can)... uhh. I just need feedback on this one. Thx.

i have a 5, 4 and a 2 yr old. i get disapprovingÂ looks because my oldest 2 have not yet been to school, and this is exactly why i made that choice. i think all mothers would have more time if they could wish for anything. i spend all day every day in the company of my children, yet i feel as though i never actually spend time with them. but don't worry. your feelings just prove how much you are willing to sacrifice for the things that matter most. your children are too little to put it into words, but trust they fully understand your devotion to them. they won't remember you being so busy with laundry that you couldn't do a puzzle, but they will remember how good it felt to help match the socks! they wont remember the countless dishes you washed, but they'll remember that you made their favorite dinner. you feel like you didn't spend time with them today, but they know better. i promise they do!
