I have to ask myself this question, am I a bad mother?
You wonder what has happened to make me ask that question.
Well this morning I let my kids rummage around in the kitchen and find their own breakfast and they wound up having left overs.
It was left over KFC from a few nights ago, fried chicken, french fries and there were left over onion rings from the Burger King we had last night.
Does this make me a bad mother? Was I just too lazy to fix them a good breakfast? Should I have made them pancakes, bacon and some sliced oranges to go along with the orange juice that I made them drink instead of their Cokes from last night. At least I was good enough to make them drink juice.
I’m torn about this. I feel guilty that I’m not up before them, fixing them a healthy breakfast. I’m feeling guilty that I may be building up a lifetime of bad eating choices. What if this isn’t just a one time thing?
What if they start to eat like this all the time?
The Hubby says that I have more important things in my life to worry about and that I should just stop thinking about this stupid thing and get on with life.
But who would I be if I don’t over think the little things and obsess over if I’m being a good mother or not?
