Charlie's Bird

living the dream with Charlie and Thandi and chirping all the way back to the nest.

My girl

…last night cried when I had to go back to the hospital, she cried big, sloppy, tired tears because she was ‘not very happy’ because mom was going to work. I tried so hard to explain to her that another mommy and her baby were in trouble and mommy needed to go and help save that lady’s baby, and that was a good thing, even though it meant I wouldn’t be able to put her to bed, read a story and say Gentle Jesus. The tears rolled,and I went off to deliver a very prem baby with a heavy heart…

how horrible for both of you.

but don’t be hard on yourself, I think it happens to most of us working mothers at some time or another

Thanks guys… It’s a constant struggle to balance maternal guilt and professionalism.

maternal guilt happens even to perfect mothers 😉
