I am a Stay at home mum to my 3 and a half year old Son and i am pregnant with our second child. For months I have been fighting to keep for some respite for my son but not i have basically lined up( I just need to go fill out the forms) i am feeling gulity that I am having him in respite one day a week. I have many reasons for deciding to use respite but the biggest being needing a break from his fustration. We live in a small 2 bedroom 2 storey unit that means he is confined to the lounge room most of the time. The closest park is too far to walk to so he gets very bored and can't burn the energy he needs to. The only break i get at the moment is the 2 hours monday and tuesaday mornings where he goes an early intervention playgroup/kindy. He loves those times. i feel like i am failing him for wanting just one day a week respite. do any other mums feel like this or have any advice for me.
