I don't know what my deal is, but unless my son is happy 24/7 I start blaming myself. Like my recent question about tantrums...he's a toddler and I've felt like I've done something wrong bc he's starting throw tantrums occasionally. I know I shouldn't be so hard on myself, but I always feel like if he's not completely happy all the time that I must not be doing a good job. It's in all areas...if he eats something too sugary, I feel bad, if I have to tell him "no" too often, I feel bad. If I forget a hat and it's cold out, I feel bad. I guess I need to accept that everything is not going to be perfect all of the time. I really don't know why I hold myself to such a high standard, but I do. I guess it's bc I'm a sahm and I feel like this is my job and is the most important thing I've ever done. I just love him so much and want to do everything right for him.
Does anyone else feel this way? Any words of wisdom to help me lighten up?
