Re: "My kids bore me to death..."
I think this is a problem of entitlement. When you don't have to work hard to get something, you don't appreciate it. I think she has never "plugged" in to her mothering role.... she's had a nanny and probably wasn't ever forced to do anything she didn't want to do. So how can she feel the joys and excitements of her children and their achievements when she never made the personal sacrifices and investments in them? She has deprived herself of being able to feel anything other than "boredom" with her children. Will she still maintain this sentiment if, heaven forbid, something terrible happens to her boring kids?
