I never thought I would do that.
Hello there! You might know me already, my name is Karla. I am a photographer, wife, and a mom. I'm starting this blog because I want to reach out people with resources and also I'd like to put a smile in someone's face with my beautiful images.
I recently quit my job. I never thought I would do that because I love working. I think I have the necessity to give back to society. However, my heart was telling me otherwise. As you probably know, we moms have that guilt inside us. We feel like we're not doing enough for our little ones. We have that weird conversation inside us that is telling us that we made wrong decisions and we could‘ve done something different. Many moms feel guilty that they’re staying at home home because they could work and bring home some income. Others feel guilty going to work because they leave their little ones at home with a stranger or at a daycare. Either or, you feel guilty. In my case, I felt like I was putting a burden on my husband because he was the one taking care of the baby when I was at my part time job. I also felt like a bad mom by not being able to take care of my baby myself. I know, I was so blessed to have my husband watch the baby while I was gone. However, I know for now that my place is with my baby.
My husband and I made the decision For me to quit my job and keep working in my photography business and also work towards my nursing degree, which has been put on hold since baby arrived.
The guilt of feeling like you're a bad mom means you're a good mom.
I know that staying at home will be very beneficial for my family. Also, it'll be such a great thing for my business.
Now, I want to hear from you. Tell me how have you deal with "mom's guilt"?
