Sometimes I second guess myself.
I never used to until I had Aiden. Maybe it's because now there's this whole new person in the mix, whom I adore so much, that I am always concerned that I will make the best decision for him.
When I made the choice to work outside the home over a month ago, It seemed so easy. More money = more things I can buy Aiden, and the higher quality of life we have. But sometimes I wonder if I'm doing the right thing. I come home from work, and some days it's like he's mad. He's more difficult, he hits me, yells, crys, squirms. But on my days off, he's perfect for me.
Maybe it's just my own guilt about being gone, not changing diapers for 9 hours out of the day. Or maybe it's a disruption in his life to have me home for 3-4 days all day, then gone for 3-4 days all day. Or maybe, he's just teething, and I am being a silly mama.
Deep down, I know what I am doing is right. And as a mom, I have no choice but to trust my instinct. That's what it's there for right?
I love my son. But sometimes I wish he'd go a little easier on his 'ol mom.
