This is my first blog, and even as I start I am thinking that I really don't have time for this...You see, I am a stay at home mom who hardly ever stays at home. I have 2 kids age 8 and 4 who are the light of my life. But, the older they get the busier I get. My oldest son is involved with many activities...Cub Scouts, Football, CCD, baseball, basketball....etc... My youngest just finished and 8 week session of soccer. I sometimes wonder if my kids, especially my oldest is too busy. On an average week we have cub scouts on Monday, CCD on Tuesday, sports practice Mon-Fri and usually a sports game on Saturday. So that leaves Sunday for church and family time. During the school year I feel like all I do is run around and I don't get "quality" time with my kids. I really miss the down times. Now that summer is here I am breathing small sigh because at least the daytime is mine to spend with the boys. But, now football preparation is starting and my son Peter (the oldest) has football camp in the morning for 3 hours and then 2 nights a week he goes for a strength training workout. Then in a week cub scout camp will take him away from me from 2-8p everyday. I always said that I wasn't going to be one of those parents who let their kids get too busy, but I feel like I am losing that battle some days. I really want them to experience different activities, but I am wondering when enough is enough.
