Dealing with Mom Guilt

[I’m honored today to be sharing at Little Natural Cottage about a topic dear to my heart: mom guilt. On Tuesday I hope to be back into the swing of things bloggy-wise and can’t wait to share with you what I’ve been up to the past month!]

Recently my son skinned his knee while playing after church.

I hunted through my diaper bag and purse but couldn’t find a band-aid. Why on earth didn’t I re-stock the band-aids, I reproached myself, I have a two-year-old son after all! 

Turning to one of the other moms at church I said, “My son needs a band-aid but I didn’t bring one. What a bad mom! Do you think there’s one in the church supplies?”

“If forgetting a band-aid makes you a bad mom,” she answered as she found the supply box, “there are lots of bad moms in this church!”

Though I was mostly joking, her reply stuck with me.
