I've been told that Mommy guilt comes with the birth (or adoption) of your first child. It's part of the territory. My sweet friend Desi compared it to a comfortable sweater that we put on; it's familiar, safe and we've grown quite accustom to it. See if any of these sound familiar...
"I shouldn't have let them watch so much TV today."
"He/She's not napping today. What did I do wrong?"
"My little is almost three and he's not potty-trained. It's all my fault."
"I want to strangle them today. If I were a better Mommy, I would enjoy them all the time."
"I have kiddos. There's no time for me. I'll get back to me when they go to college."
