    Not at all! Once a week after work isn't much time at all! As long as you're there for them when they need you I think it's important for kids to see their parents take care of themselves. It helps them to know that you have feeling and wants too - the whole world doesn't revolve around them. It helps them learn compassion for others :)

    Definitely not a bad mom, but I totally understand the guilt. Mom guilt is the worst

    Taylor my guilt is so bad that if I buy something for myself I feel bad my mom tells me that I need to start doing things for myself cause I always buy my kids stuff and they are well taken care of.
