Me, a bad amma

Always thinking for the kids. What can I play? What activity can I do? How to engage them so that TV or electronic time is minimal? How to stimulate their minds? How to build a strong foundation?,  etc etc.
Well, yesterday morning after waking up late, making kids' favorite pasta, then feeding them both while letting them play interestingly, I felt tired and dizzy, may be because I had not eaten. So by the time I was about to eat it was 11.30 am. Kids wanted TV and I said yes, but for half an hour. In that time I finished breakfast, prepared for lunch and took the kids out to play. Then it was 1.05pm and kids wanted TV again. So I said yes to TV and went to finish off my cooking. It was 2.20 when I asked the kids to switch off TV, but they were not willing to do. So I lost my patience and shouted and then TV was switched off. Well, after lunch and resting for a while, kids went to the swimming pool. After coming back and taking bath they were playing. And I went to take bath and we had plans to go out in the evening. By the time I took bath, they were watching TV again, along with my husband who had put something. I got very uncomfortable. So I came and switched it off. My husband told the kids, "if you had not seen much time in the afternoon, now I would have seen TV"!!!! And my elder son came and told me, "amma you are getting bad" !!!!!???!!!!! I try to control my wishes to see TV for the sake of kids. I want them to get their physical. I play with them even if am tired or not interested. I want them to learn more things. And I am bad amma. Am very happy now!!!!! Don't I know to give them TV or video games and spend time for myself? Will stop here.....
