Napalm the Mummy Guilt

I’ve been thinking about this post from one of my favorite ‘mummy bloggers‘. I’ve decided that we need our own red dress project. One that is just for mummy guilt.

That guilt is bullshit and I am happy to call you all out on it.

Do we really need to feel bad that we are not:

  • enjoying our kids
  • playing with them enough
  • feeding them all organic foods
  • enjoying every moment with them
  • treasuring every little moment
  • putting them in all of the classes
  • making the home spotless

NOPE

I call shenanigans on this crap.

Here is where i do the justifiable ‘oh but i love my kids’ paragraph. I’m not doing that.

No, I’m just going to say that THIS IS HARD. Being a mom is HARD.

Right here ………..>  (    ) is all of the fucks that I give if you are a working/stay-at-home/republican/benefits-scrounger/immigrant. Being a mum is hard for all of us so don’t try to pull any crap.

Can we have one day, each week year where we are able to just say it?

What would we call it? The Mummy Doesn’t Suck Day? The MOMMY isn’t Guilty Day? The MOM DOES NOT NEED to feel Bad Day?

I think we need one of those days.

Let’s call it the I’m Not Wearing Pants Project. no….. how about the My kids are assholes project…no…..how’m about the:

I’m a mom and I Do My Best project

open to suggestions

Moms, I hear you out there. Do not be afraid. We are all in this together.

  1. Being a mom is hard. No matter how you do it. Course, live in nannys and cooks and maid might make it a tad easier. Oh wait, that was always clearly beyond my reach. I love having a “My kids are assholes” day!

  2. I struggle with this every day. When I’m at work I think I should be with my kids, when I’m with my kids I think I should be at work, and it all just spirals into a giant Spiro-Graph of suck. I would give my left tit to have someone to clean my house at least once a week so I didn’t obsess about that crap as well. Arrrgh!
