Mother's guilt... It is real. It is common. It is being researched/studied. Yay for curious psychologists!
I recently learned from one of my friends that a psychology professor at a college in NY has done a fair bit of research on this topic. I can't wait to read about her findings! I will be sure to share what I learn. I will not say when I will post about it because I have no idea. Ask my daughter when she will start napping again and that will give you a sense of when I might be able to spend more time on the computer!
Check out this post by a mom on coping with mother's guilt:
If you are a mother experiencing this every now and then, be kind to yourself, be patient with yourself, do your best to take care of yourself (easier said than done, I know), and remind yourself that you are a human being, not some sort of wonder woman who must have all the answers 100% of the time. While you are at it, please remind me when I forget!
Oh, boy, my husband is going to have something to say about this post! I can hear him already! He will take my own words and use them against me!
