We’ve all had the ‘Mommy Guilt’ thoughts and struggles, and it’s one thing to wrestle with them internally, but it’s much harder when you’re suddenly forced into conversations about the topic. (For what it’s worth, I loath and despise the term Mommy Guilt, but that is for another time.)
Do I feel guilty.

Politely, I replied, “Well, I think Motherhood is a lot like running, and we all run a different race.”
