Monkey has always needed constant supervision and distraction so she has always had that one on one attention so there for she doent know any diffrent, If i go in the shower she sits and screams for me to get back, but i work of the theory a screaming baby is a breathing baby so i know she is fine, she isnt allowed to move of the chair while im in the shower incase she pulls anything out and she knows that, she is good these days but yer always one on one.
At school during work trays she and her besty share and aide and well there both very needy so i feel sorry for the aide lol

Stiflers Mom (17-08-2012)
I go on my phone in the mornings. I get woken by dh's alarm at 5:30, so I normally check then and wait for the kids to wake up.
The days I am home, I go to the gym in the mornings, then we head to the park or somewhere.
I check occasionally while my son is sleeping, whilst playing with my daughter.
In the afternoons, I'm out with the kids again, and then cooking dinner. I then go on in the evenings.
I'm at work now, and don't usually have time to go on, but I have 11 children out at swim school and about 5 at inter school sport. So, I'm marking books and checking phone while the kids are catching up on unfinished work.
I have a friend who is constantly on her phone, and gets annoyed when her 2 year old is doing something that requires her to look up from her phone. So sad.
I'm on and off all day. DD is sleeping now so it's mummy time . Just had some lunch, now watching tv and surfing FB & BH on my phone. DD just turned 1 and entertains herself for a while, then comes looking for me to play with her or get her food (she's soooo hungry at the moment!) or she just wants in on whatever I'm doing. If I open the laptop she desperately wants to bash the keyboard so I stick to my phone when she's around!
I guess that's why I like the forum, there's less pressure to reply instantly. I never use FB chat or play games live online as I feel I need to be able to drop whatever I'm doing if my kids need/want something. Same with my book, I can just click save and go bounce on the tramp.
Rarely use my laptop during the day otherwise DS dives on top of it lol I'm on my phone a bit though but I never deprive my baby of attention
I'm on my phone/iPad/laptop continuously during nap time and after DS goes to bed but while he's awake I will check my emails/Facebook/bubhub every 5-10 minutes. I'm still interacting with him though.
Like when he's eating lunch, it takes frigging forever, so I'll chat to him but I'll also be on Facebook. Playgroup, kindergym etc is where he gets my undivided attention for hours.
Probably not great but I spend all day playing with him and interacting with him, I just like to multitask.
I have my laptop on all day if I need to do something on it I would in the morning just after everyone wakes up. I use my phone all day between playing with the kids and cleaning.
