I recently did something new, I took Hailey out on a mommy daughter date. I have some health issues that have prevented me from taking my girls anywhere by myself. So this was a big deal for me.
Usually my anxiety kicks in which makes my heart issue act up and it’s all down hill from there.
Today there was no issue and I was more than happy about it. We went to see a movie went out to eat and then got ice cream to eat at home. She was amazing the whole time.
The guilt I feel not being able to do normal things with my kids is unreal. Social media is a killer, I try to not compare myself but it’s hard. This date night with Hailey meant the world to the both of us.
Last year I could not have done date night with Hailey. I would have had a panic attack worried that my health would go bad and I would have to called for help.
I have had to just accept the way things are right now. My kids are happy and healthy that is all I should worry about.
If someone offers to take your kids somewhere let them! Don’t feel guilty that you are not the one doing it. Whether it is a money, time or health issue preventing you from doing what you want. We are all doing the best we can as mom’s. Take a deep breath and pat yourself on the back because your doing great.
