Currently feeling guilty because my kids annoy me constantly and I just don't have the patience to spend time with them like I "should."  I do get quiet time and have hobbies I enjoy and friends to do things with. I just keep hoping this feeling will pass or maybe it's just the winter blues!

Do you have mom guilt?

Yes, I feel bad when I'm at work and my son is at daycare. I'd love to be a stay at home mom, but I can't!

Yes. I suffer from mom guilt.But other posts are right, we do need to take care of oursleves too. I just have to figure out how to find time for that.

Nope! To be a good mom, you also need to still take care of yourself. I get a facial once a month, I get my nails done, and I work out almost daily. It's the right amount of me time that I need and in return I feel happier!

You're a human person with needs. You don't need to feel guilty for being a person.

Yup, I have the mom guilt too. Does it ever go away?

Yes, I can relate. I feel as mom's will have "mom guilt" no matter what. It's just a part of what we do.

I feel it for my oldest. It has to be horrible to have all the attention for years and then go to very little. I feel as if I'm not giving enough time to her and then I worry that I'm not getting enough "me" time and I'll explode. Finding the balance in it all is very hard.

I completely feel the same way. Sometimes I just can't wait for nap time for the kids. I don't think the feeling will pass until they are out of your house and wish they come back. I try to schedule something with my friends at least once a month. I also tried to make new friends that are moms my kid's age so we can have the kids play while us moms watched on the side and talked.

Yup! I think all moms do.

Yes! I feel guilty if I work, I feel guilty if I don't. It never ends.

Guilt is real but give yourself a break. I work 60-70 hours a week in the summer but have a lot more free time with them in the winter. Then in the winter I feel bad because I'm not making as much money. It's a big guilt circle. 😂

This feeling comes and goes, like all others. It's so completely normal. Just remember you are doing what you can.

Ann, that is such a sweet thing to say thank you. It does make me feel better!

I think everybody goes through this from time to time.  Maybe you just need a day to yourself.  If you can get a sitter, maybe try it and see if it recharges your battery a little. Hang in there.

Mommy guilt is such a real thing.  At least you recognize it.  There are a lot of people that don't do anything for their kids and they could care less. The fact that you care if you are in a bad mood with your children sounds like you are better than you think.

I tried to hit reply Sucre, but it doesn't work. I love that you pointed out guilt is unproductive. I have been trying to be more present with my boys, especially soccer games and homework/studying. We've had some good times. Today I had a major headache so I definitely have not been productive. But that's ok for today. Tomorrow will be better.

Even as a mother, we are all individuals. We all NEED and require time for ourselves. While we give and give of ourselves to many everyday...our spouses, companions, our family, jobs, co-workers, our children, and so forth......we have the right to need some time to ourselves to "recoup" per say. I totally can relate and understand where you are coming from and yes I have also experienced the same guilt feelings for not having the patience I should at all times. I just try to breathe and step back and recollect and remind myself that I am doing my very best and that it enough and okay!

Yes, all the time! No matter what I do. Hang in there mama.

I am a stay at home mom and spend the majority of my time with my baby but still manage to feel guilt very often. I always feel like I should be spending more time with him or doing something different. I think that we all feel this way.
