Why is it that I always feel like my girls are behind other kids? I know it isn't true and I try not to compare, but it always seems like they are slower with milestones. I constantly feel like I am not doing a good job with my kids. My DS is having some school issues that I never would have anticipated, and my girls just seem like they are moving at a snail's pace. They are bright kids. My DS caught onto most milestones pretty much at average times. S is the slowest. She crawled at 10 months, walked at 16 months, started running this fall, just started going up and down stairs, neither have one bit of interest in the potty, and forget academic stuff. They are attempting to count and seem to know some colors, but I am not seeing much of that either. They like to read, which is good.
I have been in a quandry lately wondering if I need to quit my job. We cannot do that financially right now, but if we could, I think I would quit in heartbeat. I love my job, but I feel like my kids need more of me. I feel like they are not getting the time they need. I just suck at this working mom bit, kwim? Bah! Pity party for me. Whine, whine, whine!
I have also been debating a change in daycare, but we are going to try and make it to the summer. I need a place that will allow my kids to take the summers off without losing their spots. Those are few and far between where we live, so our options are limited. I have debated a nanny, but I don't know who would accept that position with what we could pay them per week.
