The Mommy Guilt

Today I am supposed to work. I took the shift from a friend who needed it off.

Today Conner is having his awards assembly (each child at the school gets an award at one of four awards assemblies during the year). Does he care that I'm not coming? No. He could NOT care less. As for me, I'm trying to get the day off, I keep checking with him to make sure it's OK. And honestly, when I look at the whole situation -- the point of the assemblies is to cheer on each other, the parents aren't involved at all except to perhaps take a picture. But then again, when are moms really honest with themselves?

It's just the guilt of working... the fact that I have to choose it over him, because I have made a commitment. Of course, showing them that you need to keep your commitments is important too.

Anyway. Just wondering if I'm the only one who gets her panties in a bunch over the little things. :)


  1. I've had to miss something of Bria's here and there and I HATE it. It's just normal mommy guilt for sure.

  2. The mere fact that you worry about being a good mom means that you ARE one. Stop worrying and just ask him all about it later tonight and make a fuss over him then. We all have the mommy guilt, but I'm convinced it's just one more tactic Satan uses to make us feel like crap. Tell him to buzz off!
