I admire your candor in this... thanks for sharing.

Yeah, a lot of mom guilt going on over here too. My husband and I separated a year ago so I don't see what some of the wives are seeing. I haven't been able to find a job and I've been plugging away here trying to make every cent that I can.

When the teenager fixes dinner; I feel the mom guilt. Well, when she does anything. When I eat at my desk instead of with the kids and on and on... hopefully this will all pay off & I can get back to enjoying my children.

Very nice posts... I read both (here & at 5 Min).

It can be hard when you have to miss out on things with your kids. It is great that they get to have more time with their dad though. That relationship is so important.

I could really relate to this post. I work from home too, blogging. It's nice to know I'm not the only one who has these feelings. Thanks for sharing your story.

Janice,

A. That photo of you is absolutely gorgeous!

B. Thanks for your honest insights. I totally related to your perspective and I go back-and-forth between "will my daughter resent my work?" to "she's going to be so proud and learn so much from my example." I think every "working" (SAHM, WAHM, work-outside-home) scenario has its own guilt-inducing factors. In the end, we all just have to do what is best for ourselves and our families...and then support each other.

P.S. I'm not much of a housekeeper either. My floors are a little too sticky right now. I'm thinking about hiring a maid...

Thanks so much letting me join in today! I love your blog Michelle and I am so honored to write a guest post.

Lightening - I am so sorry to hear about your illness. That must be so hard for you, but I am so glad to hear how your husband has been able to grow. God bless you as you continue to heal!

Thanks so much for sharing your input as well mrmacrum,chelle,amy and blessed - it is so wonderful to hear that I am not alone in these feelings!

2008-05-20T05:28:00.000-08:00

I'm glad I'm not the only one. Right now my little one is small and all she knows is that when she cries Mommy comes but as she gets older she's going to have to share me with my work too. I have an awesome relationship with my Dad and that is something I want her to have with her Daddy too so I guess my work-from-home arrangement will give her Daddy time to shine for her too. It would be much harder if we both worked outside of the home and had to come home and try to have our "special" time with her at the same time of the day.

2008-05-20T05:05:00.000-08:00

You know, it is hard because I feel that same guilt. My parents though both worked, when I was a child, and they each worked opposite shifts. My dad was as equally a part of my upbringing as my mom and I loved having that special time with him. I am sure it probably hurt my mom's feelings when I went on and on and on about one little trip with dad (when she was with me all day), but of the kids in our family, I feel like I got the best years of them both :)

I try to remember that when I feel that guilt coming on. Great guest post!

Kids have had to share their parents with work for, well forever. Seems to me the trick is to make what time you do have count for something. Even the few moments a days you might get to share.

Kids know who loves them.

2008-05-20T00:54:00.000-08:00

I've been going through a similar realisation of late. I don't work outside OR inside the home but I have been recovering from a nervous breakdown. So far this has taken me 2 years. And I struggle with tremendous guilt over what my children have missed out on because of my illness.

But I was watching my husband the other day and he has GROWN so much as a father in this time. Having to be there for the kids so much more than he used to be (when I pretty much took care of most things) has forced him to learn and grow. It was such a blessing for me to realise this. A real release from guilt.
