Mommy Guilt

So, I think I've reached a new low. Ever since I started buying baby food I've laughed at the toddler meals. Not only have I laughed but EVERY time I've looked at them I've thought "those are way too close to being frozen TV dinners and I will NEVER buy them".

Well, the time has come to eat my own words swallow my pride win first prize in worst mother of the year contest? Yes, that's right. This week I bought them for Kamren to send to the babysitter for lunch. I can't believe I've stooped to this level, but I just don't have time to make a lunch to send with him right now.

Sometimes I hate the decisions I'm making out of convenience because I work out of the home....

I've felt like the worst mom in the world before too. But you need some perspective...I've seen mother's bring filthy, babies, dressed only in a diaper, no coat no blanky, into the stores in the middle of winter...so the mom could spend the last of her welfare check on beer and cigarettes.
You're a good mom, and it's good that you're capable of feeling those little pangs of guilt. Because they will keep you a good mom.
Working out of the home in very hard. But you're doing a great job!

I don't think your a bad mom at all. You need to not be so hard on yourself. I will tell you that I purchased those dinners when Dace was little, and I did have time to probably make something, but didn't. Your doing a great job!

I wouldn't worry a bit. You're a good momma and Kam is growing up just fine! Sometimes we have to do things like this to keep us sane!
