I knew motherhood would be wonderful and hard. What I didn’t realize was the large amount of mom guilt I would experience, and – honestly – I wonder if homeschool moms carry an extra load of it!

When I was growing up and attending school, my mom didn’t have to worry about those needs because, for the most part, the school met all of them!
Grab a cup of coffee or a green smoothies, read this article, and enjoy getting permission to be human. Get rid of some mom guilt.
