Like most mothers. I continually doubt every decision I have ever made for my children. Should I have done this? What if I had decided this? I wish I would have….
My children are all grown and I now have grandchildren. One of those is almost grown. So why this feeling of insecurity? Is it normal? Are there moms out there somewhere that know they have made the right decisions every time?
I doubt it. We are moms, which is a monumental task and we are human so we make mistakes. As a working mom, while my kids were growing up, I felt guilty all the time. I was too busy, I couldn’t be a room mother because I was at work, I got frustrated when they wouldn’t go to sleep because I still had so much to do.
Despite my successes and failures as a mom, my three children have turned into respectful and responsible adults. They are doing well with their own children and with their partners. I am so proud of each of them.
Wishing all mothers a guilt-free, stress-free day full of love.
