Without them it might not hurt as much because I couldn't have let them down.

Without them I might not be.

They give me a reason to keep going.

I love my boys.

I've felt like this before too . . . it passes if we let it. I've had moments throughout my kids lives when I thought I wasn't enough for them or I'd let them down in some way because I was feeling some sort of unfounded guilt over something I don't even remember now.

I think all moms feel this way at some point, it's natural as long as it doesn't overcome you. The love is the most important part.

They love you too :o)

someone recently showed me that, when life hands you lemons, you make lemonade, shoot the evil eye to whoever questions you, spike it with vodka, and throw out the proverbial trash in your life!

don't let anyone make your boys think you are letting them down. not anyone, erica.
