I realized this week that I spend about 3 hours a day with my son during the work week.
It’s breaking my heart.
How do other moms do this?
We have our schedule down and I know that many say it’s quality over quantity, but 3 hours? Really?
Every morning I’m torn as I drop him off at the babysitter. I love our babysitter and I know he’s well cared for. He has little buddies and he’s developing at a crazy rate since he has a full posse of boys to watch and dote on him all day. It’s just so hard to feel like I’m missing so much of his life. It’s so hard when he watches me walk out the door.
Picking him up in the evening is the highlight of my day. I look forward to it all day.
I don’t know if I’m cut out to be a full time stay at home mom, but I don’t know if I’m cut out to juggle all of this either. I don’t know how people do this. How do you handle the mommy guilt? Does it get better? Easier? Worse? Harder?
