I am a single mom to 3 and work 40+ hours a week. Between that, my older 2 being in school and cleaning I feel like I never spend time with them and I have a feeling they feel the same way. Any ideas on how I can make that small amount of time so much more meaningful? We have baked together, we make dinners (on nights I don't work nights) I even include them on cleaning up but I just feel so terrible that I can't do more. :( We decorated their room today with educational things and they really liked that and we hung up some paintings they painted a couple weeks ago. i am just running out of ideas.

Anything Will Work Reading a Book or even Laying Down Watching Their Favorite Movie or TV Show . A Few Extra Minutes a Day even Doing Little Things Makes all the Difference , or Have Each of them their Own Day where they get to Spend time with you by themselves .

I am working full-time and going to school full-time, so I understand what you are going through.



My favorite time of the day for me and Jaxon is bedtime. We will both snuggle up into bed, talk about his day, read a book and then snuggle before he has to go to sleep. It's enjoyable and gives us a little time together to relax. And if I have the day off, we'll go to the park for an hour or so, and I'll turn off my phone so there isn't any distractions and then do my homework when he naps.
