But sometimes, it's just difficult. We have different interests--different tastes in books, in TV shows, in favorite activities. Some kids are more social and spend more time with friends. Others spend more time at home--and interact more with the parents--or not! :) No, our kids aren't carbon copies of us.
This can sometimes lead to what I like to call Mom Guilt. I suffer from this
Well, this week, I have an easy job! My oldest is now living in North Carolina after having graduated and accepting a job there. My youngest is at camp this week. So I have an only child!
I just called him to come in and pick something for us to watch on TV together. He politely declined. He's building something online on Minecraft.
Oh, well, I tried! And now I feel guilty once again for some reason. Maybe it's time I learned to play Minecraft...?
Who here besides me has suffered from Mom-guilt? (or wife-guilt or sibling-guilt or friend-guilt or...)
