I'm ready

I don't know about other working moms who have extended periods of time off, but there just comes a point when I am just ready to be around adults and away from my kids.  Now don't get me wrong, I love these two more then life itself, and I enjoy spending time with them.  However, the limited adult interaction that  comes with all that snuggle time, tends to affect me.  I need to have conversations that are a tad more intellectual than "mommy why can't I eat paper?"  (Yeah that happened about 5 minutes ago).  I need to delve into my other passion and allow myself time to feel like I am making a worldly difference. 

The mommy guilt I have is unbearable.  I know my kids would love for me to be home with them all day, everyday.  Sometimes that idea doesn't seem half bad.  So when school time comes around I always feel guilty that I am heading back to work and I am excited about it. 

So how about you?  how do you combat mommy guilt and find inner peace?

    1. Maybe when our babies are in school full time it will be different?
