Mommy guilt is something that every mother experiences. For me, I experience it quite often. I can say that I’m definitely my worst critic! As a mother, there’s a lot of pressure. You’re responsible for a human being after all! There are always decisions to make like what’s the best daycare or school to send your child to; should I buy dinner to save time or do I make dinner? Should I put my child in extra- curricular activities? Do I buy this particular fruit that’s on sale even though it’s not organic? LOL! Do I make him an only child or do I give him a sibling?!
Then, there’s the questioning within ourselves like are other mothers judging and mom shamming me when my child acts out in public or because my son refuses to use the pot and isn’t potty trained?
Do I work too much and do I spend enough time with my son? The list goes on and on, but I suppose it’s normal to ask these questions and to have guilt. After all, I guess the mere fact that I’m writing about this shows how much I care. As moms and women it’s important to support each other! Every now and then try telling another mom she’s doing a good job! This really does go a long way. Remember to take it one day at a time and don’t be so hard on yourself, mama!
Oh and by the way, the movie Bad Moms was awesome! If you haven’t seen it yet, take a group of girlfriends and go!
