When I signed on for this mom gig I was unprepared for the amount of guilt that it involved.
From day one, I felt overpowering guilt. Guilt about whether I would be able to properly and adequately take care of my babies. Would I ever be able to take a shower again without feeling guilty I wasn’t with my babies all the time.
Should I just let my babies cry or pick them up everytime. Rock them to sleep or let them squall for an hour or two.
