I feel guilty for, you know, putting my younger son, because he was only entering kindergarten. So yeah, I tried real hard to balance being with him, but I feel—and I went to all the field trips as much as I could with him—but I do feel guilty because I know he had a different childhood, and I feel guilty like, "how could I have maybe been there more for him?" My step-daughter, I feel guilty about—she was in high school at the time, and, you know, it's a tough time—so I feel guilty for not being there more for her. But at the time you make those decisions, you take everything that's happening then, and you, you think you're doing the right thing, I mean that's all you can do. You just, and you can't regret too much, because then you can't move forward. So you have to just let go and say, "well I did the best I could."
