When I first become a mom I was so plagued with mommy guilt if I wasn't spending every minute focused on my baby.
When I first started having to discipline my daughter, I felt so guilty as well.
Now, I am very thankful because I've finally got to a place where I feel good taking time to myself because I know I she is getting enough of my focus and attention.
Now, I am thankful to know that because I love, cherish, and protect her I also have the God given right to discipline her when necessary.
I am very thankful to be over the mommy guilt in these particular areas. Feels good.
