I’ve always struggled with motherhood. From the moment I found out that I was expecting; fear overwhelmed me….
Fast forward to the present, I’m now the proud and terrified mother of two little boys! They are truly the best part of my life!
As much as I love them, they are not my entire life, which always leaves me questioning myself- does that make me a bad mom?
Am I a bad mom because I want my own time, my own friends, my own life?
When I’m not with them, I miss them. When I’m with them, sometimes I want to run away and pretend for a moment that I’m not responsible for these precious lives.
Can I have a bad mom moment please! Or two or three???? ( I was very reluctant to post this pic from a few years ago in fear of being judged!)
I fear that I’m not doing enough for them….I don’t do field trips or PTA meetings. I don’t solve their school yard/bus problems. I don’t feel the need to know every time my kid behaves badly at school. So, does that make me a bad mom? I rarely leave them with a sitter on a weekend to have a date night our a girls night out because I feel guilty….
BUT this weekend, I’ll be making an exception! Because today there’s a movie that every mom should see. The trailer alone, makes me feel better about myself (pathetic, I know)
