Mom to Mom Mom to Mom

Do you feel guilty when..

Posted by   + Show Post
You buy something for yourself? I bought a shirt today. Just a plain long sleeve shirt. And i felt guilty. I rarely buy things for myself. My kids have more clothes than i do. And thats fine. I always put their needs before my own.

Yes sometimes but I've finally started buying myself clothes because I've been pregnant for the majority of 4 years and I didn't have clothes. I do tend to buy my kids more though.

1 mom liked this

i dont feel gulity, but i do feel the need to ensure that dh and ds are ok before i do anything for myself. i havent had a decent winter coat in 3 years. last year both ds and dh got two. i really want to buy myself a coat this year. old nave had a sale on light jackets on saturday i was so bust thinking about getting on for ds i forgot that i needed one (they didnt have his size) i didnt realize until sunday i could have just bought one for myself.

No Way!! my daughter and husband always come first so when I spend $100 or $200 on clothes for my self, I don't feel guilty at all. Besides, you should never feel guilty about spending money on your self.

 I used to feel that way but then my husband kept buying things anyway so if he is going to buy me things I might as well get what I want : )
