I’m so glad that I have more time to post things from my personal perspective since we ended Talk To Us Tuesday’s giveaways (although I do LOVE giving stuff away!).
I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how the weekends and holidays are much different now that I have a child. I honestly feel like I am “working” all the time. I’m working at work (where I have a large workload) and when I get home it feels like “work” taking care of a crying baby, getting her to eat enough dinner and doing bedtime. I feel oddly guilty about feeling like taking care of the baby is work a lot of the time. I think it’s because I go back and forth in my head thinking things like “I can’t complain, I love my kid and I’m fortunate to have a healthy baby” and on and on.
I really DO love my baby girl. She is the light of my life. But often times it does feel like work. There’s no down time on weekends. Holiday’s are way different – no sitting on the couch watching tv for a few hours at a time. I wanted to write this post because I want to know if other people feel this way too. Be critical of me if you want but I have to believe that I’m not the only mom who feels like taking care of her baby is “work.” I have a sneaking suspision this is another one of those topics that we don’t really talk about openly because we think that in order to be the “perfect” mom we can’t admit things like this. What do you think? I can’t wait to hear.
