Okay, so let’s talk about guilt and your kids…Oh, do we have to?
Yesterday we went to my middle daughter’s track meet. I dropped her off with a friend and ran an errand. When I got back to the school, my husband who came from work met me in the parking lot and told me that “the parking sucks,” which my youngest must have repeated 3 times. He told me that I could go home and he’d stay and watch our daughter. Inside my head, I smiled. Hubby and I talked for a few minutes and decided I’d go home. (after I looked for 15 more mins for any parking space I could squeeze into.)
And that’s when it hit me! What mother leaves her daughter because she couldn’t find a parking space? In my mind, I saw the faces of the thousands of moms and dads that have attended their kid’s sport’s events. Would they leave their child? Well, this one did. And daily I have to redefine my picture of the imp3rfect mom.
