The Guilt of a Mother

I feel guilty when..........

  • they don't eat enough
  • they eat too much
  • they eat too much junk food
  • they don't get enough sleep
  • I leave them alone to play
  • they don't know how to play alone
  • I don't spend enough time with them
  • I don't buy them the things they like
  • I buy them too many toys
  • they watch too much tv

I can't think of anymore right now but all I know is that the list is endless. As mothers we try to do our best for our kids and quite often our standards of expectations for ourselves are rather high.

I know that most mothers feel some degree of guilt over one thing or another. What do you feel guilty about? Care to share?

  1. i feel guilty for not spending enough time with him. even though i hv time, i m so lazy and wanting to sleep most time...

  2. yup...i agree with u. we are in the same boat.

  3. littlelamb,
    Thats the most guilty feeling of all, when you have the time and yet you don't spent that time. I know that feeling well. Lol.

    The boat of guilt. Haha. It rocks Guilty when we do something or guilty when we don't do something.

  4. I feel guilty when I leave him alone watching TV just to surf on line and I feel guilty when he asks me to play with him and I say "no" to him while I'm actually very free! :)

  5. i plop my babe in front of the tv so i can blog.

    i check my i-phone at the playground

    i keep her in the stroller for a long time so i can get much needed errands done

    i keep her trapped in my bedroom in the morning so i can doze for an extra 30 mins

    the list is endless, isn't it?

  6. lol. Rebecca. We all do these and then we just feel so guilty don't we. We're bad mommies! ;)
