I feel like I don't give my son enough attention.

My son is the only child and sometimes I feel as though I don't give him enough attention. I feel guilty if he wants to play and go go go and I'm tired and tell him not now or I'm tired. I feel as though if he had siblings he wouldn't feel lonely. Then it makes me feel bad because I know how it feels to be lonely. I end up feeling bad if I get short with him because he's calling my name 24-7 unless he's in school or camp. Is this normal?

I know..it's like he can keep going and going. Energizer bunny comes to mind and I'm more like the sandman. Lol.. Glad to hear someone else feels this way too ;)

Unfortunately, very normal. I, too, have an only child (daughter) with lots of energy and battle the same feelings. I wish I had half the energy she does!
