Tell me you are evil too…

When I’m cooking something yummy, I always tell the kids they can’t lick the batter because it has eggs in it. 

But I don’t do it for their safety…

I do it so I can eat it all myself… 

Mwhahaha!

Mommy Guilt

Some things in life you just can’t control.   

Today, my Poo who is a kindergartener, is going on his second field trip of the year with no parent.   And what is worse,  he is the only one in his class who does not have a parent going with him.   
I totally understand the policy– no siblings on field trips– but that kind of ties my hands when I have a nursing infant.  I can’t just take off the jugs and hand them to a babysitter.    That stinks sometimes.   What is sweet, is that he totally gets it and when his classmates heard his mommy wasn’t going with him today they thought I was sick.  He had to explain that she couldn’t go because she had to take care of his baby sister.   

I know this is just for a season, and by the end of the year I will be able to go for longer stretches so this won’t be an issue forever.  It makes me a bit sad, though, that I’m missing all these firsts for him.  And the fun for the others.  JD had a trip yesterday and told me he wished I could come because "it was the coolest field trip ever."   I relegate myself to hearing about it second hand as I try to not tear up. 

Mommy guilt is often false guilt.   They had fun and are perfectly fine that I didn’t go, even though they wish I could.   I just wish I could get over it as easily as they do.  They are growing up too fast, right before my eyes.

I know a young girl who’s a mess.

Her dad sees her room and feels stress.

The space is a dump

Turns  mom to a grump

Those parents see junk in excess.
