On Guilt

October 1: Guide to Parenting.

Hey, get out of my head. Seriously.

Guilt gets you nowhere. Great lipgloss, on the other hand . . .

Heavy Sigh.

I'm really trying to NOT feel guilty about a lot of things.... mostly kid-related things.... but hey, I was raised Catholic..... guilt is something we do with a capital G.

When I first became pregnant my mother told me "being a parent means going to bed feeling guilty every night"

Cheers mum
