Wow you have a 1 yr old and a 7 mo old? Is one of them adopted? Sorry, I was just curious. I am pregnant and our youngest two will be only 11 mos apart. Anyways, it's going to be okay! You are a great mom. If you weren't a good mom, you wouldnt be worried like you are! A bad mom wouldn't post about this. Just enjoy them while they are little, they are only young once! Good luck. Your daughters are lucky to have you!

I have a 2.5 month boy. great! kids are interesting arent they. I found that other than providing food for physical of the kids we should not forget about food for spiritual of the kids. I found that my boy is more calm when I read sentences from my religion's holy book. how about yours? I heard that we should provide 3 foods for a children; spiritual, physical, and intellectual food: and believe that spiritual food is the most important one!

You are a good mother, all moms are concerned and think they are bad mothers. I have a two year old daughter and a two week old daughter and I feel like the worst mom in the world because I cannot spend every waking moment with them. But you need time apart from them or you would go insane. Just enjoy the time you do have with them, it goes by so fast. I often feel like I won't be able to handle the kids, and some how I manage to get through them day by day.

Parenting is really a hard responsibility. I also have a 6 months old baby boy and sometimes I don't wana leave home for work because I wana be with him. Maybe as working moms, all we need to do is to check on them everyday, ask your nanny or whoever is at home about what happened to your kids, if there are changes or progress. Have time for them. I know it aint easy because when you get home from work you are already tired but as a mother you need to alot time even for few hours only. Play with them. Let them feel your overflowing love, as the mother.
