For the lack of attention your kids get somedays?
I'm starting to wonder if DD would be better of in childcare 3 days a week.
Currently I'm starting an online business. And it takes up alot of my time.
I've been alternating my days, as in working on Monday, SAHM & house wife on tues, working on wed (ok, be both know it's NEVER one of the other) but basically I don't leave the office on 'working' days. DD is left to amuse herself. We always have lunch & dinner together and always read atleast 1 book. But that's the extent of 'our time' on 'working' days.
Today's the first day I really felt bad. Not realizing the time. Came out of the office to find shed helped herself to a pack of crackers she'd found in her nappy bag and fallen asleep on the lounge no mummy/daughter lunch time today.
On mummy days we clean together, go to swimming lessons, lunch at the park, play games etc etc.
I guess I keep her out of care because it's expensive and because I want her home (selfish I know) and because she's a very needy child with serious separation anxiety.
But if she went to care, do you think shed be learning more then through her own discovery at home?
