Seriously?!? That is all the time I spend with the children? Hmmm I doubt that... let me add it up. An hour and 21 minutes a day? It can't be right. And by "time" what the heck did the article mean? To this I say PHOOEY!! Yup you read that right PHOOEY (as I stick my tongue out at the Article). I am baffled by this. I read further into the article and supposedly stay at home mothers only spend 2 1/2 hours caring for their children. Again.. SERIOUSLY!?!? What the heck is this article trying to prove... no matter what kind of mother you are.. you are still doing a lousy job with spending time with your children? It's just not possible, that we spend that little time with our children. Or is it?
For me.. I "believe" (notice the quotes) I spend at least 2 hours a day with the children. I will concede that our morning routine is not time spent together but rather me getting them ready and getting myself ready. But we talk during dinner prep and on our car rides to and from daycare. We cuddle during cartoon watching or reading books. But is this article talking about "quality" time.. if so.. explain to me what that is. Because from my understanding.. if the children aren't being ignored and are in your presence.. isn't that quality time.
So come on.. confess.. how much time do you spend with your wee little ones?
