I thought my biggest decision today would be deciding between these two pairs of shoes to wear to the Bat Mitzvah we’re attending tonight.
However, Isabelle woke up congested after her nap (Yes, she’s napping again! Thank G-d!). She didn’t want to get up, which broke my heart considering we’re heading out tonight. How could I leave her with a babysitter when she had a runny nose?
Enter mommy guilt.
As the next couple of hours progressed, I discovered it was just a cold. No fever. No cough. But I still feel guilty. Therefore, I wrote her a little note that I placed atop her book pile in her bedroom.
And now she’s sitting in my office happily watching the Maccabeats while I type this. We’re going to the Bat Mitzvah tonight. I’m taking my dose of mommy guilt with me. Though I’m still not sure which shoes I will wear.
Edited at 11:30 pm: Isabelle did fine with the babysitter. And I went with the comfy shoes. My feet are thankful!
