Do you feel you have less time with your children after you have more then two?

Do you have guilt over that?

  • I only have 1 child at the moment but this is exactly why I will not have another child until he is much older. He is only 2 and a half and if I had another child I would fill sad that something was coming between us and really enjoy our bond at the moment. Plus I think I would not only sad about it I would feel guilty because he needs me so much..I also do not think I have the ability to give everything to two young children...I need time to myself and I barely get that with one child even though both me and my boyfriend work from home!

  • Of course and of course. But hopefully the kids are old enough that they get independent and don't always need/want you Like DD can play in her room by herself and she doesn't mind...she actually goes in there by herself. I always check on her and spend time with her through the day when the others are down or after they're in bed for the night. It's all about time management.

  • Yes I have less time, no I don't feel guilty because they have time with each other as well.
