My computer time is often for leisure, so my guilt is even bigger! I get them same message from my kids sometimes. Mama, why are you ALWAYS on the computer. I try to carve out those moments, when I am more engaged in their play. Creating those little memories with them will last until they are grown. I think if it was a daily thing, it wouldn't make it nearly so special. I know you agree with me too, that kids need to learn to fill time, without a grown up always coming up with what to do. You seem to have found the perfect balance for that. I'm still trying!

I have FAR from found the balance, Omaha--it's still a struggle. But it has gotten better now that the kids are getting older--that helps!
