G is For Guilt

The wonderful feelings of joy & so much more from motherhood are overshadowed with daily doses of guilt. Now 2 & a half years on I constantly think:

I didn’t spend enough time with him today, I had to work, I was tired and I had so much general housework to get through.

I didn’t play enough with him.

I didn’t just sit with him while we both watch TV or read together.

I never find time to research things like potty training.

I didn’t put enough thought, time and effort into his food today........

all with the usual guilty outline of ‘I’m so rubbish at this.’

I never thought I’d feel so many daily doses of guilt.
