I don't get to watch Oprah very often but I did watch parts of it yesterday. It was all about motherhood. I have to agree with a lot of things that the mothers said. I don't want to admit when I need help and and I do worry what the other mothers will think. I meant an acquittance on the weekend and we were talking about Easter plans. I mentioned that we were visting family who live 3 hours away. She asked me how the kids were in the car and I said good. This part is true. Ever since my children have been born we have always lived a few hours away from some family. They are use to the drive. The part I omitted is that last summer we bought DVD players for the van for the 5 hour drive to grandma's cottage. We have since used it as well for the 3 hour drive as well. Why did I not mention this part? I thought it would make me look bad. 3 hours in the car gives me the chance to work on/finish craft projects or read a book I need to know about for my job working in a library. It is however hours that I lose with my children. Sometimes I feel like the guilt will never end. Why do we to this to ourselves? Okay, why do I do this to myself? So, for all the mothers out there whether it be of children or animals I want to say you are wonderful the way you are!
