Feeling guilty all the time Lock Rss

Hi everyone

I'm a stay at home mum to a 2yr old boy and a 3 month old girl. Some days run like clockwork and others - well I just feel like all I'm doing all day is feeding, changing nappies, getting drinks/food etc all day, and it can be near impossible for me to just go to the toilet or have lunch. I know I'm not the only one in this situation and don't get me wrong - I love being home with my kids. The problem is that on the hectic days I feel so guilty as it seems I don't get to spend any quality time with either of them - it can be like a constant tug-of-war between them. Before I start brestfeeding my daughter I always make sure my son has a drink and something to keep him amused, however he often wants something else as soon as I start feeding - and I feel so bad having to keep telling him "Just hang on a minute', other times it's my daughter who has to wait, crying while I attend to my son. It just makes me feel so bad. Anyway, as I said, I know I'm not the only one, I just needed to get that off my chest.

Oh Jas! Big hugs to you, it can often get daunting cant it? Especially those days when they both want attention 24/7. Believe me, i know how you feel, added to the guilt that nothing gets done on those days and other mums seem to breeze through everything, i feel it too. Oh well, im sure it will get easier for us (until no.3, then we can start pulling out our hair, lol!)
Hope today is a "GOOD" day.
