I sometimes struggle for inspiration for more creative blog posts that stretch my writing. So I think the wonderful MumturnedMom blog's new weekly 'The Prompt' is a fab idea. She posts a prompt to inspire posts from other bloggers every week, and creates a linky for everyone to share.
This week's prompt is a quote, and is followed by my response to it.
Guilt to motherhood is like grapes to wine. Fay Weldon
Well, if it is, then it shouldn't be.
This is 2014. Women work. Men work. None of us are perfect. Life, is life. And we have to make the best of it.
Are we doing the best we can for our children? Yes, we are.
Do we love them? Yes, we do. [in how many ways?]
Do our children love us? Yes, they do.
Are they cared for, nourished and nurtured by people who you and they trust? Yes, they are.
So, if you do feel guilty, then STOP. Now. I mean it. You have absolutely nothing to feel guilty about.
