It's only really when my kids are playing independently where I will browse the Internet for a little while, but when they actually want to play with me then I'll put my phone down and focus on them. I'm not that bad, I have seen worse. My kids will always come first.

Absolutely. I am definately one of "those" Mums. I work full time, study part time. Full time work doesn't just steal your 9-5 hours away, it steals from 7-7! And study steals your weekend or in between times. By the time I've finished my house duties and ready to sit down and have a conversation with my son- he's reading his home reader and hoping into bed! Mum's work too much! The Government can't support quality and prosperous childhood- which I do not believe comes from a full time working Mum. It's a sucky situation which I only have myself to blame. But it is what it is- we make the best of that sucky situation and hopefully one day we will appreciate the golden hour we have to ourselves.
