Haiku Friday - Momma Guilt

I hate momma guilt
why I think I'm a bad mom?
just cause kids not home

Gran back from Vaca
wanted kids for the weekend
we gladly say 'Yes'

now that they are gone
the guilt creeps back into me
for no good reason

the kids love them so
hubby and I love the time
it works out for all

feel guilt cause I like
some peace and quiet alone
but I do miss them

guilt all around me
my free time, for leaving them
momma guilt is tough

even though it has been ages since i've had a vacation...i remember the guilt of not being with my kids!! i have guilt that i'm going out tonight!! so, i completely understand...and, i'm sure most of us moms can totally relate!!
enjoy your time alone!

So true! I think every mother goes through this. Remember you have to take some time for yourself in order to be the best mom that you can be! (I know - easier said than done.)

Stop the guilt! It is so good for your kids to spend time with grandma. They are lucky to be able to do that. And just because you get a little peace and quiet to enjoy does not mean you should feel guilty. The break will make you a better mom. Enjoy! No guilt allowed. ;)

No guilt allowed. You take this time, and remember that you are a good momma... No guilt allowed!

I guess we wouldn't be normal without the guilt?!

the guilt? normal, but unfortunate...

it's good for them to be with grandma ... and good for you to have alone time.

Stop feeling guilty, girl! Go out and enjoy your weekend! You are being a good wife.

Happy Friday.

NO GUILT! You deserve time off, it makes you a better mother. I know from experience.

Guilt is such a waste
of your time and energy.
Just relax and “be”.

Hugs and blessings,
