How many of u think u do a good job of balancing being a good mom and good wife?
I know I have some days where I feel hubby gets neglected, some days are tough to be good at both.

  • Somedays I'm better at one or the other some days I can be good at both. Then there are those days where I am good at neither.

  • Everything I have done over the last 16 years was to be a good wife and mother. I have dedicated half my life to my husband and my kids - and I can't think of anyone who deserves that more than my family. (c:

  • I think I am the glue that holds my home together......so I guess my answer is yes. They don't get along, but I play referee and try to keep peace........so yes.

  • I think part of being a good wife is being a good mother, so I try not to feel guilty when my attention is divided. I am lucky though, because mine really does understand that my attention has to be on the kids a lot some days and understands me being tired at the end of some days.

  • After 39 years of marriage and three adult kids, I would have to say yes I did, although I agree with you that at times it gets hard.

  • I try. There are tough days, but that is like with anything. My family deserves the best I can be for them.
