Mommy Guilt

I’m currently sitting at a Starbucks trying to figure out what my first post should be, meanwhile our nanny is at story time with Ainsley…Yes, I realize how crazy that is and yes, I’m filled with guilt…mommy guilt. I told my fiancé the other day that being a mom is a double edged sword. You want to be there for every moment, but you need time for yourself. When you actually take time for yourself you feel insanely guilty for not being with your child 24/7. So where is the line? When do we give ourselves a break? Is it when we realize that the shower hasn’t been used in a week, or when you run to Walmart for some random baby item and realize you haven’t changed your clothes in 5 days. I find it difficult to give myself a break because I’m bombarded by “the perfect mom” on social media, mommy groups, and family. We can drive ourselves crazy until we have nothing left to give, and I’ve been there! But guess what? Now that you are a mom the guilt will never leave. It’s just something we have to learn to live with, like Taylor Swift. It’s never going away no matter how much we wish it would. My point is, spend all the time you can with those crazy little human beings, but don’t forget that YOU are a human being who needs a break! No matter what we do as moms someone is going to judge us, so give them a big SCREW YOU and live your life! I’ll leave you with this: YOU deserve a break, and no matter what that chance to yourself looks like it is well deserved. I mean after-all, you BIRTHED ANOTHER HUMAN BEING!
