This Plus That Equals…. Massive Mummy Guilt

This plus that equals….massive Mummy Guilt

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is what gives me a good case of mummy guilt!

  1.  Sending him to nursery, he loves it, it’s good for us both to have the time apart, but when I work from home I cannot shake the feeling that he should be home with me.
  2.  Tantrums. He is two years old, it’s hard being two years old, but sometimes I struggle to not take his tantrums personally and that in turn makes me feel guilty for somehow not being good enough.

  3.  Enjoying time away from him. I love my little boy more than life itself but when I have the odd moment or worse a whole weekend away from him and actually enjoy myself, eurgh, that makes me feel like a horrible mother.
  4. Not spending much time with other kids or at play groups. We do swimming lessons on a Tuesday, he goes to Nursery two days a week, the rest of them time we spend with each other but sometimes I feel I should be doing more with him.
  5. Everything else in between!! Why does every choice we make, every little thing, lead us to feel so guilty. Why!

  1. This is so true, mummy guilt is something else isn’t it! Everything has a bit of it creeping in… playing with H, I think we should be doing something she can learn from, if I try to sit and have a cup of tea or use the ipad while she plays, I think I should keep playing… sometimes I think she should go to nursery so I’m not always with her. But we’re all doing our best! 🙂

    1. It doesn’t matter what we do, I think there’ll always be something we think we should be doing better! Friday saw me sobbing down the phone to my husband that I was the worst mum in the world, having dropped my perfecting healthy soon off at nursery just to get a call that he was unwell. Surely I should have known?! Mummy guilt is the worst.
      Thank for picking my post as your favourite! Xx
