I am having mommy guilt. And not about the norm. I know I spend quality time with Landon. We play all evening until he goes to bed during the weekday. I don’t feel guilty working. I know I am a better parent for working. No dissing to any SAHMs. Just the way it is for me. No no…I am happy with my mothering of Landon. My mommy guilt is coming from my other baby. Jack Jack. I am horrible. I always promise to take him for a walk or run in the evening…but I get home, finally get Landon occupied with something and then I need to fix dinner. Then I play with Landon, then it is time for bath. I get downstairs to see Jack just looking at me, ready to bolt into the yard for his frisbee…but it’s dark and I have to make our dinner. We do get to play some when it is nice out and Landon wants to play outside. LTe plays with his tee ball set and I throw the frisbee for Jack. He goes to daycare once a week to play and I usually do a long run with him on the weekends but I know I need to do more but when? How do you deal with a family AND an active doggy?
P.S. To brag, he is a champion running partner. He always stays right beside me and I am pretty sure he could have done that half marathon with me…and still would want to play frisbee when we got home. The longest run he has ever done is 10 miles. People are always impressed 🙂
