Have you really thought about how many hours a day you spend with your kids? Did you tell yourself you were not going to keep up with the Jones and now you've realised it turn out that way

I spend 24/7 with my kids, except every once in a while when they spend the night with their grandparents or my husband takes them somewhere without me. They even go to work with me, and I wouldn't want it any other way.

Good for you I'm glad to hear that. I'm a stay at home mom and I wouldn't have it any other way either.

I am with my child 24/7. He is always around me. That is just time, quality time is a little different. Being a stay at home wife and mother, I have to wear so many different hats (wife, mother, cook, banker, dry cleaner, laundrymat, doctor, maid, etc.), so on days that I am real real busy and have a lot of running to do, I don't spend as much quality time with him as I wish I could. Quality time to me, is talking with him, playing games, reading stories, going to playdates, parks, etc. So, somedays I'm on top of everything, then there are days like today, when I have so much to do and a house that needs cleaned, that I feel like an awful parent because I didn't get to do as much with him as I should have.

I try to spend as much time with my boys. I was watching some home movies last night and miss them being little so bad. My oldest is now 20 and my baby is now 14. The thing now is getting them to spend time with me. They have there own thing going on now and I am left in the back ground. To all you mothers that dont spend much time with there kids. drop what you are doing and go spend some time with your kids. If you dont, you will wish you did when thay are grown and dont have time for you.
