If I think really hard about it, I don't even feel guilty.
Obviously, there is a big part of me that has severe helicopter mom guilt over not doing everything for my little babies, and leaving them to fend for themselves in our
So I remind myself that the most important thing a mother can do is prepare her children to take care of themselves. No matter how nice it is for them to need me for everything (or how much my control freak self wants the butter to remain gouge free), it is better for them in the long run that they know how to make their own breakfast and lunch. God knows I'm failing miserably at teaching them how to clean up after themselves, but maybe here is one small area where I'm teaching them a wee bit of self-sufficiency.
So we're going to just pretend that this was my goal all along; to teach them the first little steps in taking care of themselves. Rather than just a side effect of my lazy ass never wanting to get up in the morning.
