Motherhood guilt grabbed a hold of me yesterday and didn’t want to let go. We went to the pumpkin patch yesterday and were really enjoying ourselves. 👦🏻👧🏻👧🏻There was a petting zoo, a corn field, multiple tractors and a hello kitty themed area... but just as the kids were excitedly running towards the pumpkin patch area, Aaliya got randomly stung by a bee on the bottom of her wrist. 🐝That evil gremlin, motherhood guilt, caught a hold of me. 😈How did I not protect my little girl from the bee? 🤷🏻♀️I know that in all likelihood there was nothing that I could have done differently that would have kept her from getting stung and feeling that pain but... there isn’t always logic in motherhood. We live by feelings. These children are my heart and my soul. 💖When it comes to them everything is magnified. I see and feel the deepest and most profound love but there can also be pain felt just as deeply. When we got back from the pumpkin patch we finished her school project and then took her out for frozen yogurt. When we got home I read her our nightly chapter book. She peacefully drifted off to sleep. I stayed for another ten minutes so I could cuddle her just that much more. Then it was laying me awake in bed till 1am with guilt and “researching” why on earth the bee stung my daughter for no reason. Lol. Oh the things we do and feel for our children. But we all did smother her with a million hugs and kisses in hopes that it would make her feel better. 💋💋 What have you done to make your children feel better after a bee sting❓Does motherhood guilt visit you sometimes too? I wrote a blog post a few years ago about that feeling. I’ve linked to it in my profile if you want to give it a read.
