I don’t know about other working moms who have extended periods of time off, but there just comes a point when I am just ready to be around adults and away from my kids. Now don’t get me wrong, I love these two more then life itself, and I enjoy spending time with them. However, the limited adult interaction that comes with all that snuggle time, tends to affect me. I need to have conversations that are a tad more intellectual than “mommy why can’t I eat paper?” (Yeah that happened about 5 minutes ago). I need to delve into my other passion and allow myself time to feel like I am making a worldly difference.
The mommy guilt I have is unbearable. I know my kids would love for me to be home with them all day, everyday. Sometimes that idea doesn’t seem half bad. So when school time comes around I always feel guilty that I am heading back to work and I am excited about it.
So how about you? how do you combat mommy guilt and find inner peace?
