Mom-guilt is so real and so sneaky. At the exact same time that I am overcome with gratitude for pretty much everything we have, I am simultaneously walloped by guilt and exhaustion.... In the six weeks that Mr. Omri has been with us, the older two kiddos have been sick four of those six weeks. 4 out of 6 weeks!!! That makes me exhausted. I’m also a perfectionist and a germaphob which I’m sure qualifies me for the crazy-bin (and makes every instance of illness seem like an eternity) but how am I supposed to care for my babies and keep house and run my business and shower and eat and function and breath??? ... to top it all off, mom-guilt has been hitting me hard as we’ve been trying to get Jude back into his therapies... I need another 10 hours in the day and an extra 2 days in the week because Jude should be getting around 5 hours of therapy per week AND we’re behind on specialist appointments and Matt and I are both booked through the new year (super grateful) and, oh yeah, we have a newborn. ...I’ve been going to bed every night for the past month knowing that i need to do better and that I’m missing deadlines or letting someone down and it hurts my heart so so much. I’m so grateful to be surrounded by grace-filled friends, family, and clients. But I’m also exhausted. Grateful and exhausted. Thankful and overwhelmed. That’s me in a nutshell this season.
