I thought it might be nice to write a follow up to this post where I lamented the mother guilt that seems to follow me around ALL THE TIME these days.
Last weekend I went to Melbourne with one of my best friends and while we were there we spent a day with another one of my best friends. I was so excited about the weekend but was also feeling that ever dreaded sense of guilt that comes with being a mother and spending time doing anything other than mothering. Well, I am happy to report that a wonderful weekend was had with virtually NO GUILT involved! My friends and I ate and drank and shopped and ate and drank a bit more. We walked (LOTS of walking – my friend has the FitBit data to prove it!) and talked and laughed and it was fantastic. I missed my darlings back home but I did not begrudge myself this weekend away. The moral to the story – feel the guilt and do it anyway!
