Guilt

Posted by Angiefairbanks at 12:09 PM
I realized that I don't always allow myself to enjoy myself. If the kids are napping and I feel like watching a movie, I sometimes feel bad about that! Mostly, because of all of the other things that I have to do. I do it anyway, but that doesn't stop me from feeling a little guilty.
I think as mothers we have always felt guilt. Whether its doing something for us or denying our kids the toy at the store. It also can go deeper than that also. Young mothers especially get caught comparing ourselves to the other moms. We think, "he's potty trained, mines not, what am I doing wrong?" Guilt. "Oh that mom is so skinny after having 4 kids, I have 2 and I am fat!" Guilt. "Those kids are always so clean and their hair is always combed." Guilt.
We need to come to be happy with ourselves and what we do. Every mother is different and every child is different. With that there are different circumstances and different decisions that are made. I think that as long as we are doing our best to know at the end of the day that are our kids know they are loved and that the kids are happy, we have done enough.
