Tonight when I got home from dropping Max off to see his dad, I flipped on the T.V. while I made supper. I caught the last 3 min. or so, but saw that they were discussing stay-at-home moms vs. working moms. I got me thinking (and worrying) about leaving Max each and every day as I head to work. But before my thoughts got too in depth, I thought to myself - "Stop."
These women should not be on the Dr. Phil show arguing against each other and yelling about who is the better mom. I really can't even believe this! I think we (as women) beat ourselves up enough and put tremendous amounts of guilt upon our own shoulders about anything and everything - we don't need to turn against other, fellow mothers. Each woman has their own burdens to bear, decisions to make, duties to fulfill - we can't judge each other for the way we raise our kids. We should be lifting other mom's up...encouraging them and helping them when we can.
As long as we are each trying our best and loving our children the most our hearts will allow, then I admire each and every mother who is doing what she has to do. It's a whole different ball game when children are in the picture - that is obvious. So no matter how much time you get with your kids, whether you are home all day with them or you just get to see them a few hours at night...just make every moment count and have no regrets. Love with all you have and never miss an oppurtunity to say "I love you!"
