I stumbled across a blog post, the other day, at Backwoods Mama that really helped me. I have been struggling with the fact that I cannot do what I want right now being in my flare. I cannot volunteer for everything, sit on the floor, etc. I have been putting myself through some serious mommy guilt about this. SERIOUS. Mommy. Guilt! Like I need that right now on top of everything my flare is putting me through, right?!
This post hit right to the heart of my guilt. L won't remember that I couldn't volunteer to help with her school musical. Hopefully, she'll remember my beaming face. At both performances. As I try not to cry. Which will be ridiculous because she doesn't even having a speaking part or solo. She'll just be singing her little heart out on stage with the rest of the chorus. But to me she'll be the star of the show. Anywaaaaaay, I digress, she won't remember that I couldn't volunteer like she wanted me to. L will remember that I was there when it counted.
You can read the blog post here. I highly encourage all mommies to do so!!
