Then I go home and I'm so glad to be with her and I wish I didn't have to go to work and I think I'm crazy for ever being content without her near me. We snuggle and cuddle and the next day I do it all again and feel the happiness and guilt all over.
Motherhood is hard, being a stay at home mom is really hard. You give so much of yourself up and then feel guilty when you get a bit of yourself back.
I love my girls, I love being with them but I also love teaching and being an adult for a few hours every day. Getting dressed in clothes without spit up on the shoulder, putting on make-up and showing off my baby photos to all and sundry.
I guess I'll have to live with the mommy guilt.
