I think I do a decent job as a mother. My son is loved to pieces and is very happy, confident and secure. He's also developing on or ahead of schedule in every way and wants for nothing. My husband and I are happily married, have been together for a long time, are both completely plugged in with our son, both have jobs, make a slightly above average income (although for our area definitely below average) etc. However, sometimes I look at my son and am just in awe of him and I just want him to have it ALL. My husband and I have regular jobs, nothing prestigious, we both dropped out of college (BIG BIG mistake, no question) and we live in a small condo without a yard. I know that kids need love more than material things. I don't believe in over indulging. I definitely don't want him to turn into a spoiled brat and I know that he has it better than many kids out there. But sometimes I still can't help but feel almost sad that we can't offer him everything. Do any of you ever feel like that?
