So I decided I need to find a way to get rid of the guilt. I feel guilty because I never expected that parenting was going to be so hard. I thought I would have this little baby and it would all be sunshine, hugs, and kisses. Though it is that way sometimes, most of it just plain WORK. I want to be grateful, but I feel so stressed with working full time and then coming home and taking care of my 1 year old daughter. I want to enjoy her more, but I find myself looking at how much time it is until bedtime. I feel so horrible about this. I also struggle with the idea of having another child. I feel swamped with one. Will two kill me? I know deep down I do my best, I just seem to feel guilty about needing"me" time. I never realized how much of myself I would have to give up to be a mom. This last year of being a new mom has been quite an adjustment for me. I just want to do my best to care for my little girl and get rid of this guilt! Can anyone relate?
