I am a mother of 4 kids..The twin girls are11 and next girl is 9 and a seven year old boy..
Some part of me feels guilty for not having the kids in any kind of extra curricular activity. I see other moms actively involved in running to ball games, taking kids to practice, going to meetings...(run run run) My kids have asked to be in dance class, karate, ect. But I've had to tell them no, because if I say yes to one all 4 kids would have to join something. I just see absolutely no way I would be able to juggle the time and effort for it PLUS not to menchine the costs for just 1 kid to do 1 activity is to me is extremely high (in some cases) and sometimes higher through the school---plus basically times 4 the cost for me and with one income that's tuff. We do fun stuff with the kids..we take them out on the lake, ride go carts, fish ect..I want the best for my kids and would do anything I could for them..Does anyone have a word of advise for my busy mind tonight? Thanks
