....Ah the days of parenting!
That is a full time job in it's self, and then to have the medical problems on top of it...plus what ever life is throwing at you can be over whelming to say the least.
Dani, I have always admired your attention to raising your family first and foremost. Those little ones, are lucky to have a mother who recognizes the value of this....
...so you need not to apologize to the members here. No one here will be critical of you for this. We all need private time to get things done in life.
My children are all grown up...but I married into three young children, ages 5, 11, and 15, and I was 50yrs old at the time...and a step dad to boot!
It has not been easy...but I took on the whole package when I said "I do". Our 16yr old has been announcing her independence and the desire to be a full fledged adult...
without accepting the responsibility of one. It has not set well with the family...and not a very good example for the now 9yr old.
Thank God for counselors! One more night sneaking out of the house...and we were instructed to call 911...and give her a taste of what adulthood is all about
I guess my point in all this is, ...that we all have responsibility's in life and we need to prioritize it the best we can....and not worry about
what others may think.
In my books...children come first...as we prepare them for the future...and hope they don't make some of the same mistakes we made. It's all about
love for them and whats best for them as well.
Dani, if you need some time to get things done in life...then by all means do so...and don't feel guilty about
it. The members here are adults...and will certainly understand.
Of course we always know you will do all you can to balance all the balls in life...as you are a hard worker...and most certainly a multitask-er...something I have a horrible time with.
Take care, and we all certainly hope you have better days ahead.
