Ok, there are a thousand ways that Mommy's feel guilty. Here are the ways I feel guilty...
I work and therefore don't spend every waking second with the boys -- guilt for NEEDING to work (I need to, B wants to -- B by the way has not an ounce of guilt about this!).
I like to be away from the boys and damn it sometimes just want to be alone -- Guilty for WANTING me time -- I should want to spend every second I have with the boys, especially since I work!!!
I got pregant with R before L was a year and my damn supply dried up, so guilt for not BFing for a year.
Now here is the most recent and troublesome -- I feel guilty for shopping for myself. My clothing is so outdated that it is ridiculous and since I have that thing called a J-O-B, I actually have to dress in something more than sweats every stinking day. So this weekend I went shopping -- with the boys mind you -- to update my wardrobe. Oh and maybe get some clothing that actually FIT.
Now, I have two HUGE piles of stuff to return. Bought it, half of it was tried on, half not, so I have stuff to go back to the Gap, Lord and Taylor and H&M. Some of it fits great, but now trying to justify $70 work shoes is making me sweat. $70 was NOTHING in my former life and now I think -- oh, a month of Gymboree for L if I return them. Of course, he isn't enrolled in gymboree and I still don't have TIME for gymboree, but hey, the thought is there.
So, help me get over my Mommy guilt because seriously, I think pants that I am holding together with rubber bands qualifies me more for what not to wear then it does for a promotion.
