With a schedule that would make lesser women scream, I am always up to my eyeballs in something or another. So it is getting increasingly hard to set aside that special time with each of my boys for the fun stuff.
I remember when my first son was about three before my second had arrived, we spent hours playing, seeking out parks & play houses. We would find enjoyment in just being with each other. I love it and never realized that some day those times wouldn’t come easy, I would have to fight tooth & nail to steel away just moments of the sweet time we once had.
S0 now we have two sons, and we are considering a third child in this crazy mix! So now I am left wondering how I am going to do it? I don’t just mean taking care of them, as far as I am concerned that part is pretty simple. I mean having a real relationship with each of my boys. One that they can value & take with them for life. I realize that they are not going to look back one day & say….”wow mom thanks for cooking & cleaning & working till the death to buy me 1000 Christmas presents”
I realize that it is tough but I also know that it is hard. How do you balance the demands of caring for your children in this economy if you are a mom that has to work & being with them, I mean really present with them so that you have a foundational relationship?
I am old enough to know when to admit you don’t know and I am kinda at a loss here on this one. Help, I need a to get this one tackled before we add a third baby into the mix, and I really want at third child.
