There is definitely nothing wrong with having a little you time, or a little you and DS time

I know that feeling of guilt you're talking about. I don't have two kids, but there were times when I tended multiple kids. The two in particular I'm thinking of I was over the moon for, they were great girls. However the youngest got used to spending the whole day with me while the oldest was at school, and so when the oldest got home they were fighting for attention. It was really hard! I felt bad for not being able to give the little one as much attention as I did all day. I felt equally bad for not being able to give the older one that same attention, especially because I'd known her her whole life and she was used to getting all of my attention before her sister was born.

I know it feels like you're doing something wrong either way, but I hope you can try to not feel too bad. Really you aren't, you're just trying to give everyone what they need. I think you're doing a great job of it.

Thanks so much Claire for my awesome siggy
