The last two weeks have been super stressful for me. I have been preoccupied with the adult world and haven't spent as much one on one focused play time with my son as I usually do. He is very sensitive and asked last night if he could go to his dad's. He has never asked that before and it broke my heart. I know he is feeling neglected and I want to make it up to him and will, we have two weeks of vacation coming up.
Do you guys ever go through this, the guilt of trying to juggle and realizing that you have neglected your child's emotional needs? He caught me crying last night doing dishes and he said "not again mom!" I am feeling like a failure. It is so hard to balance everything.
Later on- thanks ladies for your words of support and encouragement. I have a sinus/ear infection and as soon as the antibiotics kick in I should feel a whole lot better. It can be just one additional thing (like being sick) that can make life seem unmanageable. XO
