Mommy Tantrum

So yesterday's post was not a healthy one for me. I kept going back to it, and re-reading the list of things D1 did. It got me all riled up. It served up a good ol' dose of self righteousness. No wonder I can't get anything done! That's why my house is always a mess! I can't even paint my foyer in an acceptable time frame! I can't even take a few minutes for myself! Ever! I can't put makeup on because she ruined it all! You get the idea.

Then in the late evening it turned into guilt. I must not spend enough time with her. How did she have all this time to do these things, anyways? I don't engage her in enough interesting activities. I let her watch too much tv. She's not eating healthy enough. She's jealous of her sister. I must not be giving her enough one on one time. It's obviously all my fault, and I even posted it for the world to see, and they will all plainly see it's my fault. I must be a bad Mom.

Sighhhhhh........

Wow, Jen, you're human!

You are a great mom. And you are a full-time mom, which is really tough. You don't ever get a break, you never get to leave and play grown-up, you are "on" 24/7. Show yourself some compassion!

Hugs!

Obviously, you do not know what you are doing. You let your child watch TV? That's the devil's work.

Disney05, who are you to judge? If you were a true Christian you would know better than to judge others -- lest you be judged yourself. In your religion isn't God the only one who is worthy of judging humans? How about some compassion for your fellow humans?
