Quoting Blythe.:" Can you do something special with them like Saturday morning breakfasts out with just mom? Those things make me feel less useless. "
I try to. A couple of weeks ago, I took my 7 year old out for lunch and shopping since her birthday was in a few days. I try to take one of the kids with me anytime I go to the store while DH is home. I'm at home carless with my 2 younger kids but one is napping because she's sick and the other is playing on the tablet because it's more fun than I am.
