yes I do. I am working since I was single until now that I already have 3 children. You are right. I feel guilty because I have no time for them. My kids are growing up now and they did not enjoy the company of a mother. How sad...I really felt guilty but I have to work to supplement our income. It's hard if only one has an income. Anyway, I made it a point that when they have activities in school, I will absent from work and attend to it.

I stayed home with my son the first year and going back to work was also hard for me, but you will adjust and this gives your child his own space to learn some independence. Now there are some mornings I look forward to leaving the house and headin to work.
