S01E05 How to stop feeling guilty for missing my life before kids

 

We love our kids, and are happy to be parents - so sometimes we feel guilty for wanting to take a break and go back to our pre-parent lives...

Mom-guilt, parent guilt, whatever you want to call it - it can be easy to feel guilty for sometimes resenting our role, and longing for the life we used to live before we had kids. But when we think about it, why WOULDN'T we miss that life?! It was pretty awesome. In this episode, we empathize with ourselves for missing that time, break down three ideas that can trigger guilt when we want time away from our kids, and figure out a better, more productive place to put our energy when those feelings hit.
