It comes in all forms. We feel it for many things:
Breast feeding didn't work for us.
I work full time and my baby's in daycare.
Sometimes I turn on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse to get a few minutes to myself.
All things we feel guilty about, but definitely shouldn't.
My newest mommy guilt obsession
- the gym.
I need to work out. NEED to. And, for maybe the first time in my life, I actually want to. Here's the problem...I feel bad about going to the gym after work. I feel bad that E has been in school all day and then I leave her right after we get home.
She's fine. Daddy takes super good care of her and she thinks he's the best thing since sliced bread. Buddy keeps her pretty entertained too. They're all fine. It's me. I'm the one with the issues.
So, I'm just going to do it. I'm going to go work out and I'm going to feel really terrible about it for a week or so. Then I'll get over it just like I've gotten over all my other mommy guilt issues.
Anybody else in the same boat?
