I feel guilty about a lot of my parenting choices! What I feed Ella, how much television she watches, if I play with her enough, the list goes on!
I think we, as not only mothers, but parents in general need to give ourselves a break! Bringing a child up is not easy. To some it is second nature, but to others it is a real struggle. Everyone has days where they are pushed to their limit- their child won’t sleep/ eat/ play, teething makes an appearance, clinginess, whinginess, and we all need to remember that we’re not the only person going through it.
Sometimes we all need a break and it’s ok to admit that! Go get your nails done, go for a child-free coffee with a friend, drop the kids at granny’s so you can clean the house! Whatever it is, give yourself a break and don’t be afraid to admit you need one- at the end of the day, it’s reassurance for another parent out there who is feeling the same way!
