I should have Mother’s Guilt Tattooed across my forehead.
When my son was little I did not feel well all the time from the emotional and physical roller coaster from my lovely hormones after he was born and then after the loss of 3 babies. I would feel so guilty because I felt horrible physically and could not spend as much time outside with him as I would have liked too because I was sooo hot all the time from the hormone imbalance.
The hormones finally got in check and now that he has gotten older it has just become a whole new ball game of guilt.
Anything can cause me to feel Mother's guilt. If I raise my voice in the slightest I feel guilty, if we can’t do something he wants to do I feel guilty, if I send his friends home because Mommy would like some peace and quiet for one day I feel guilty, if the store doesn’t have the right kind of chicken nuggets for the poor child I feel guilty, this list could go on and on. It is a daily occurrence around here that I feel guilty for something, I think that just comes with the whole Mom territory.
I even have Mommy puppy guilt with Ginger since she has one eye and all, I feel guilty anytime she stares up at me wanting a treat, I just have to give her one,who could deny this face.
I am just a hot mess when it comes to Mommy Guilt.
