Motherhood. May is the month to celebrate mothers. We love unconditionally, we love deeply, we love with pure joy and honest emotions, and we love sacrificially. I know a lot of us struggle with mom guilt.
Guilt because we work outside the home, guilt because we don't but our house is a mess. Guilt for spending too much money on our kids and guilt because we don't or can't. Guilt because we forgot to pack a lunch or bring snack for our kiddos at school. Guilt when we just need a break for a few minutes and park our kid in front of the TV or the iPad. Guilt because we yelled this morning when our kid didn't get ready fast enough and missed the bus. Guilt if we give them McDonald's and guilt if we cooked, but it wasn't a recipe from Pinterest. Guilt if we don't breastfeed and guilt if we don't make homemade baby food. Guilt for spending time with our husbands/significant others/friends and miss putting our kids to bed one night. Guilt for not having enough friends for our kids to play with, and guilt that they aren't going to the fancy school. And lastly, guilt for the way our bodies look.
Don't let mom guilt steal your joy of being a mother. Embrace yourself and all the challenges and incomparable rewards that come with this opportunity to raise humans. Because, we are ALL just that. Just humans.
And ask your significant other to realize the importance of having photographs of you with your young humans in the tender moments, when all the mom guilt subsides, and all you see is LOVE.
