When you have to work and you miss a school's event. When you work late so you bring take out home. When you cancel plans because you are tired. When you treat yourself. When you call in sick at work and you are not really sick. Thinking you do not spend enough time with your kids. Not being able to spend more money on your kids. The picture is mine taken by me.

Oh this is so true. Also coming home tired and wanting to sit down for a few minutes before you dig into the homework and help them with a problem. Plus, when your child is waiting for you to come home so they can tell you about their day and you ask them if it can wait a few minutes. You need to relax.

@jstory07 Yes I did because I was a single mom and her dad left her when she was only 13 months old. He never saw her again until she turned 37. So I was mom and dad and I needed to be there for her. I was happy I only had one child. It was hard enough with my work, classes, and taking care of all the other things that I had to take care of.

As a mother, I try to balance my work and my family. Of course to me my family still goes first. I am glad that at least my child is a school boy and that means to say I can work in daytime. When I am home, I try to spend more time for my child. And I will do my work when he goes to sleep and this is why I often have to go to bed late.

I would ot feel guilty over those things. When I worked I knew I was providing as a single mom. My job was to bring home the bacon. The stuff I missed was a give in. I felt guilty putting my child on the street while I lay in a warm bed with a dry roof over my head. But such things had to happen and now I feel guilty for not calling her at all.
