Super Mom

Studying is hard to do

Studying is hard to do but not just for the student.  The other two are really having a tough time getting used to not having enough of my time. 

I think Jason just hides it well but Zander is open about it.  He loves my mom and would stay with her or go to her anytime of the day or night.  Some weekends he drives me crazy asking me to take him to her.

This past week though, he wants nothing but his Mom.  He doesn’t want to stay with Ouma when we leave and even opted to stay home today, when Jason went there.

I feel so bad that I’m not spending enough time with him (and Jason).  Just the odd 10 minutes here and there.

  1. Dit is inderdaad nie lekker nie, maar ek glo die aandag wat jy aan hulle gee is kwaliteit. Hoop dit gaan beter … sterkte vir jou!

  2. It is so hard to deal with “working mom” guilt. I can tell you from the other end of it (Chase and Bethany are getting an apartment together near the university this week.) that every moment you spend with them is valuable and that it is enough. They just need you to be mom…the mom that you are. You don’t have to give them a perfect life or a perfect mom. (As if such a thing were possible.) You just need to be the mom that you are.

    Ek glo hulle verstaan dat dit nie verewig gaan wees nie. En soos jy se dit is net tot Donderdag en dan is alles weer na normaal.

    Wat jy dalk kan doen is om hulle al drie vir ‘n roomys te vat, maar Zander en Jason kan dalk ‘n flake inkry om te wys hulle is net so spesiaal vir jou.

  4. I’m in the same boat, only thing is we don’t have an Ouma here so I have to rely on care you pay for or friends! Grrrr.. life’s never easy. Mabye he’s coming down with something and wants some extra TLC?

    • Yes, I’m VERY lucky to have my mom around. Don’t know WHAT I’ll do without her! I think he just needs the extra attention. Thankfully it’s just this afternoon. Tomorrow is the last exam!!!
