I want to enjoy my life, not just my children's.
I'm not trying to sound selfish, I totally love being a Mom and seeing the world through their eyes. But I need to be better balanced.

You are not selfish. You need to find things that are just yours to do. I know you are for home school and that is great, but for me both kids are going to be in school all day this fall and I can't wait, I have reserved Tuesdays and Wednesday were I don't work and those are my days. I hav books I want to read, spend sometime finding myself, who I am, not the massage therapist, not the teacher, not the wife, not the mother, me. Maybe one of the days that Mike is home can be your time, to do what you want to do, just you no kids, you do have to have balance and it wouldn't be selfish to take one day for you. Because someday all your kids are going to be older and self-sufficent, maybe some will be in college, some may be moved out. This would not be the time to have reconnect with yourself, too much time will have passed and it will be harder. I guess what I am trying to say is you need to be happy and fulfilled, every part of you, not just mom and wife, even though those are great things, there is more to you than that and if you give yourself sometime to be you, then you will have even more joy and happiness to give your kids and Mike, it's not selfish.

Hope this helps, I've been there and I only have 2 kids. I can't imagine the work you must do with 6.
