I sat in on a panel for the #motherhood twitter chat last night.
And I loved hearing everyone's take on the joys and the guilts and the loves of being a mother.
I think everyone mentioned at least once basically this thought:
Seriously. We have guilt over perfectionism? I kept asking the moms...
- Do your kids love you?
- Do you love your kids?
- Do they KNOW you love them?
Game over. Lose the guilt. We've got enough with all the multitasking, phone-calling, car-pooling, butt-wiping... don't ya think?
Now go tickle your kids and listen to Catherine Connors:
herbadmother Ah, I love my kids to pieces, and they know it.
herbadmother No matter my insecurities about my motherhood I know my kids are HAPPY, that they laugh every day, even when times are tense.
