Shitty moms don’t spend 15 months at home with their child. You and your husband need to talk about a game plan to get you over this guilt! You are still a valid human being with your own set of needs and wants. Being a mom doesn’t vaporize your needs. Don’t allow it to!

I’d look at the positive – you live someplace where you can actually take 15 months off, and then get leave again 6 months later. We get 12 weeks here, but only if we work someplace with more than 50 employees, and only if we have worked there 12 months first. Oh, and that’s unpaid. Imagine the guilt of moms who have no choice but to go back to work at 3-6 weeks because they can’t afford to stay home!

Something a friend used to say to me: “Lighten up Buttercup!”

I don’t know why it always made me laugh, but it did.  Stop being so hard on yourself and try to smile a little bit!
