Mom Guilt ~ A Note From Katy
By Katy Agro Myers
Have you ever had one of those weeks where you just feel like you're scrambling? We lost power Tuesday night and most of the day Wednesday and then I had a doctor's appointment that lasted way longer than I expected. The result was me feeling ridiculously behind and like I couldn't catch up all week! The work didn't stop, so I had to squeeze in work when I could. This meant that my kids got more electronics time then I had hoped for, I didn't get to spend as much time with them. I've yelled too much. I've looked at the zucchini and bananas turning brown on my counter more times than I can count. I want to make muffins. But I haven't.
It's summer, my kids are exhausted. I'm exhausted. And I hate being buried by the mom guilt. Always feeling like I should be doing better. So, I'm going to cut this note short. I'm going to go snuggle with the little boy who snuck into my bed last night. And I'm going to try to put the mom guilt away for the weekend and just be present in the moment.
