This post Mommy Guilt-Let's Talk at Emily A. Clark could not have come at a better time.
I know that there are areas in the country where back-to-school has already begun. Where I am on the east coast back-to-school is the day after Labor Day.
The last couple of weeks of the summer have been a difficult balance between entertaining my son and attempting to find time to complete the things on my to do list. Each time I attempt to find time for projects or even me, the mommy guilt creeps in.
This precious child is my priority. He's happy and healthy. I couldn't ask for more.
So, why is it that I feel unorganized, unproductive, and basically undone?
I've come to the realization that I will just need to let most things go for the time left before school begins. Before long we will be back into the regular schedule and routine of the school year and hopefully I will have the opportunity to find time for the endless list of projects that have taken a backseat. I may even find a moment for me.
It's been a little overwhelming, but I'm content knowing that I do the best I can for my family every day.
Thanks Emily for letting all the moms out there know they're not in it alone.
