The "G" Word

Guilt.

It's a sadly familiar emotion for mothers. It's an emotion that I feel more often than I would care to admit, and if you are a people pleaser, it's even worse.

Today I was at home with a sick little girl.......Instead of being able to just be with her and tend to her, I was feeling my own sickness....about missing work. And I hate that. H-A-T-E that. The thing is though, I think it's mostly my own doing...guilt-tripping myself. Why?

Seriously people, how do we lose some of the guilt feelings? We feel guilty about so many things as mom's, but the truth is that we are all just doing the best we can....
