We are not the only ones talking about how to rid ourselves of mommy guilt! Just yesterday, CNN posted a list of 31 reasons that we should not feel mom guilt, written by Stephanie Dolgoff for Parenting.com. If you are ready to laugh or at least chuckle…read on!
Some of my favorites from this CNN article:
“#2 Feeling smug that you’re a better parent than those on “Supernanny”. No worries. We all feel smug watching “Supernanny”. Until we don’t, at which time we employ her techniques.”
“#18 Tossing their artwork. After you’ve saved the truly superior thumb pots and the especially sentimental glitter collages, you will still have a heap of crafts the size of Mount Etna. Fill up a big black Hefty bag after they’re asleep, pour yourself some wine, and then watch Hoarders. You’ll feel better instantly.”
“#28 Finding aspects of motherhood incredibly tedious. If you didn’t find watching your child go down the slide for the 100th time that day (“Mom, look at meeee!”) or nagging him to put his socks in the hamper a bit of a snooze, you’d be too easily amused, and hence a moron.”
If we can’t laugh about these things….then we are in TROUBLE! Click this link for the entire list! http://www.cnn.com/2010/LIVING/personal/03/11/p.reasons.no.mom.guilt/
