I think that out of everyone....MOMS do without alot of things for their family...especially their children. We just naturally want to 'give' to them unconditionally everything we can whether it's hugs and love or toys, toys, toys to make their little lives fun and exciting. We love to see their happy shining little faces with a new toy or something they wanted.. BUT, ...
Have you ever just really felt like you wanted something for yourself sometimes,but felt guilty about buying it for yourself ,,so you you buy it, put it away someplace and never told your dh/so that you bought it. Maybe left it in the back of the closet or under the bed for awhile and when you did bring it out finally ....no one was the wiser.
I have done that....I love purses by Coach. Every couple of years I get an "itch" to have a real handbag that I feel I'm worth( I rarely get anything)....but, I'm just afraid to come out and say "Hey, look what I bought for myself for a change". I guess I think someone in my family will think I'm selfish because I actually bought ME something this time instead. I make myself feel guilty? I wish I didn't have this feeling hanging over me, but I do.
**I suppose I'd better clarify that the Coach bag was at a huge discount(a delayed purchase)not right when it hit the market and we can afford it. My point is just that...I guess I don't know why I guilt trip myself when everyone else in my family gets everything they want. Game systems, iphones etc. We are not rich but do not struggle either. I've had my share of Walmart purses over the years, believe me, but I like nice things too once in awhile.
Why does this seem wrong? Have you felt this way or done this? or Am I really the only one?
