Struggling With Mom Guilt

Some days I feel like super woman, I have a list of things to do and I knock them all out before noon and have time to spend with the kids. But some days, some days I struggle to get out of bed and the list of things to do is overwhelming.

Today is one of those days. I want to cry just thinking about how much I need to do but I have so little motivation to get it done. Every one needs laundry done (again), I haven’t even put up the baby’s laundry from last week. The entire house at LEAST needs to be vacuumed, dishes put away, dinner started for tonight, and we are out of lunch meat (again).

My husband wants me to spend more time with my MIL who is currently living with us, but I can barely take care of myself and the kids. The baby needs extra work on sitting up and tummy time because she’s behind developmentally and I feel guilty for not catching it sooner.

I feel like I am drowning today, but I will not give up. I will keep fighting the negative feelings that threaten to overwhelm me, because they need me to. My family needs me more than ever right now and I can not give in just yet. Some days are really hard, and today is one of those days.

  2. How’s your baby doing now? My first didn’t do everything as early as my second. But he more than caught up when he was ready. He’s a great athlete now.
    I do feel for you with the MiL. If hubs is not in agreement about the boundaries, it sounds really tough on you.

    1. The baby is making progress. It’s slow but I will take whatever I can get. She starts early intervention next week so I hope that helps.
      My husband is amazing as far as communicating with me and we always try to be in the same page. It’s still tough dealing with his mom but we have all learned to make some compromises to make this whole thing run smoother.
