    Word. My variation on “dishes not done” is “lunches not packed.” Basically, if I don’t have all of my lunches packed for work by sunday night, it just isn’t going to happen. And then starts the crappy fast food spiral.

    I relate to this so much. It’s hard not to let the mommy guilt get to you.

  3. We are sisters in guilt. When I wake up on Monday morning, the first thing I think of is everything I didn’t do that I know I should have.

    I’ve certainly experience a fair share of this type of guilt. It’s hard to stick to a plan 100% of the time.

    I agree with Julie. I am so bad to not pack the night before and then everything goes down hill from there. I guess the best thing to do is plan ahead?!

    Mom guilt is an awful thing and something I feel we all experience in one way or another. These days I feel guilty for working too much.

  7. I am like you when it comes to Friday, watching Doctor Who and not getting off the couch. I feel guilty about sleeping in slate.

  8. We seem to eat fast food most often on the weekends as well! I never feel as guilty as I should about it LOL.

  10. Valerie says:

    I try not to have any guilt. I do think I see where you are coming from with almost all of these though.

    For me it is not starting Monday off with a clean kitchen and living room, I already feel behind on my week!

  12. Christie says:

    I always regret memories I could have been making with my kids instead of doing chores or other non-family things. The guilt is tough as a parent

    Wasting away the weekend makes me feel guilty because I have to find room in the week to squeeze in the things that did not get done. Tape the kids favorite songs and hum along while you play night melodies. They’ll be happy and you can shed the guilt.

    Yes! Especially about eating fast food all weekend. I feel like I work all week, weekends shouldn’t be made for me to cook 3 meals a day. I deserve time off. But then Monday rolls around and bam. Guilt sets in about being lazy all weekend 🙁

  15. Tracey says:

    I try not have any guilt, but find solace in that I will try to be better than I was last Monday. Great post!

  16. I always make it a point to do something on the weekend that relates to my blogs or other freelance work. That way, I can spend the rest of the weekend doing whatever I want and not have so much Monday guilt.

  17. Chasing Joy says:

    I”m not a mom yet but it sounds like you are a terrific one and are being too hard on yourself.

    My biggest guilt on Mondays are dishes not done and trips to the gym not made.

  18. Crystal says:

    Monday mornings are rough! I feel bad getting bad on Mondays that I’m not starting off the week with a clean slate.

    Oh I really hope you do not buy them another tablet. Those things are too expensive to replace and for them to get angry (time for them to get a job lol). Also a lot of the things on your list you shouldnt feel guilty you should celebrate…fast food and tv watching on the weekend sounds like a party to me!

    I always eat bad on weekends and feel terrible about it after. I need to write a reminder to myself about how crappy i feel after i eat like this.

    You shouldn’t feel guilty about anything…this is life! Live it up 🙂

  22. Megan @ C'mon Get Crafty says:

    So much truth here! Every Sunday I vow I will have the house cleaned and meals prepped for the week – all laundry folded and put away, nothing looming to start my Monday off-kilter. How many times has that happened?? Let’s just say I’m still hopeful.

  23. Marina John says:

    The fact that you worry about these things makes you great! It’s important to take time for yourself once in awhile too!!!

    I used to feel the guilt – but as I get older – I am happy to say there is less and less guilt.

    I totally feel you. But I have learned to give myself Grace and just relax and be loosey goosey on the weekends. There is plenty of time for schedules and tasks during the week.
