Motherhood is guilt

C-section, Normal or epidural
Water broke, contraction or inducing
Full term, pre term or just a day
It's my fault: I'm a guilty mom

Breastfed, bottle-fed or formula-fed
Under-fed, over-fed or no feed
Poor latch, cluster feed or skipped feed
It's my fault: I'm a guilty mom

Awake, asleep or playful
Gassy, burpy or farty
Cranky, smiling or sombre
It's my fault: I'm a guilty mom

Pee, poop or posset
Cough, sneeze or hiccup
Scratch, rash or hair fall
It's my fault: I'm a guilty mom

Caps, socks or mittens
Onesies, rompers or tees
Sweater, scarf or shoes
It's my fault: I'm a guilty mom

Hurt reveals love
Time reveals truth
Society reveals standard
So, motherhood is guilt!
