As a working mom (with a lot of extra curricular affairs, lol), I tend to devote my weekends spending time with my unico hijo. My husband and I always feel guilty for we spend a lot of our time at work during weekdays so we make up for it by going out on weekends. We usually don't bring help with us so we can devote our full attention (and energy) to Leon.
We usually bring him with us whenever we go to the mall, meet our friends or basically do anything. For this particular photoset, my husband took this a month ago at Glorietta after my workout at Planaforma. Obviously, taking photos with Leon has becoming a challenge for he won't keep still and would rather run around the mall. (I think he is starting to get annoyed everytime we tell him to smile to the camera).
Recently, I am now beginning to relate to working parents (whether working here in the Philippines or abroad) who try to makeup for their absence by buying their kids things or even spoiling them. I can really feel that pang of guilt everytime I realize how much time I do not spend with my toddler. Leon's carers will also tell me that Leon's attitude changes whenever I am around (he tends to be bratty and very makulit, whereas he is usually behaved when we are not around) -- which made me realize how much attention my son needs from me. Hence, I makeup for my "absence" by making sure that I am present to him whenever I am around.
How about you mommies? Do you feel the same way?
