Why do we do this to ourselves? It seems like I can't do anything without feeling guilt of some sort.
Patrick had macaroni and cheese for the first time for lunch yesterday, and he LOVED it. And as I was laughing at him while watching him eat, I felt guilty for not giving him something healthier to eat.
Erin's been very cranky lately, and I've been having headaches again (I think they're hormonal, and I think my body is trying to come out of stasis). The two are not a good combination. I hate to say it, but there's been a fair amount of yelling going on...on BOTH sides. Erin yells at me just as much. I feel guilty about that, I do, and I'm really trying to be better.
I'm trying to get out of my head. I think it's so easy for mothers to feel so guilty about not doing everything right. I think it's easy to forget that imperfection is part of being human and that our little failures aren't the important thing, the important thing is the effort to improve ourselves.
Anyway, this is more of a vent than anything. Just trying to get myself to stop dwelling on the things that I do WRONG and start thinking about the things that I do right. My kids are happy and healthy, I must not be doing too terrible of a job, right?
