Good Mom / Bad Mom

I'm supposed to be telling myself that I'm being a good Mom by laying around all day, right? I'm taking care of Samuel by not moving as much as possible.

But then there are times that my other children need me to do something that would require me getting up or moving or whatever. And then I feel like a bad Mom for not being able to do that thing.

So sometimes I cheat. For example, I just got up and changed Isaiah's diaper because Richard isn't here at the moment and I couldn't stand the idea of Isaiah being poopy for another second. I was being a good Mom.

But then when I got up from the floor, I had a contraction. And felt like a bad Mom. Because apparently that wasn't good for Samuel.

*sigh*

Who are you trying to fool. You are always a good Mom. Just keep believing in yourself. "this is but a moment..."

that's really tough, especially because there's not really one right answer. Keep hanging in there!

like when you give time to one child, they other one feels neglected, or when you are breaking up a fight and scold the wrong kid?? - don't stress over it, because the fact that you even thought it means your a good mamma. it makes us strong and it makes our kids appreciate when we get it right.
