A big mug of mumma guilt

A big mug of mumma guilt

On this Throwback Thursday, I thought I’d tackle the old mother guilt chestnut. I’m feeling a lot of it right now, with the whole packing, moving, not really knowing where we are going, not having enough time for anyone {myself included}.

I know that this too shall pass. We will {at least for one week before the day} enjoy our pre-Christmas time together as a little family of happy Christmas crazies.

It’s the time between now and then that I’m worried about. I feel guilty about already. Whether I’m doing something on one of my many lists or not. Whether I’m spending time with my critters or not. Whether I’m fully in the moment or not.


Here are {just a few of} the times I’ve felt it before:

Has anyone seen my mojo?  {ps … it’s now been more years than I feel I can mention since I had a date, so if you know anyone, I’m open to meeting them!}

Will they revoke my mumma card?

The days of motherhood that no-one talks about {one of my most popular posts of all time}

Mother guilt

If you’re a mumma feeling the strain, know you’re not alone … and here’s a big *virtual hug* to help you through your day.

  1. I’m only Mumma to a furry, but try not to let “the guilts” get under your skin. I’m pretty sure (very sure) you’re doing your absolute best. And once you do your best, there’s nothing else to do. xo

    This couldn’t have come at a better time for me – I’ve just started working extra hours and the mumma guilt is killing me. Also I’m tired of being the grown up!! Wouldn’t it be nice to tag someone else in for a day or two.
