Oops, I caught the mom guilt

This weekend at church, the main topic of discussion was about regrets, and the “what ifs” and “so whats” of our lives, and one thing that the speaker said really hit home.

Petition to End Working Mom Guilt

I’ve read a lot of mommy blogs lately about the guilt surrounding being a working mom. Having been there myself when I first returned to work after Miss A was born, I understand why it happens. You return to work, people ask you why, they ask you how you can stand leaving your child to be “raised by someone else” (ugh), why doesn’t your husband earn enough that you can stay home, or worst of all, why are you so selfish that you want to return to work (yes, selfish for wanting to provide for your family).
