I love my Peanut, that I get to stay home and take care of her, that I get to see her do all her amazing/wonderful/silly things.  
But sometimes I wish I could be alone for an entire day. Sometimes I just want her to let me do  what I need to do without having her right on top of me. Sometimes I want to go to the bathroom without "company." Sometimes I want to read a book without pictures and not have to stop to get a glass of juice. Sometimes I want to have a day that doesn't depend on the mood of another being. 
Then the guilt washes over. Sigh. 


  1. I understand it's not quite the same, but my wife says similar things in regard to the PFB. We nickname her the Visa-Puppy because the dog is literally everywhere you want to be. She's my wife's shadow....
    and the guilt. she also mentions the guilt.
    I feel for ya.

  2. You, my dear, are a normal mother, parent and human being. You're doing a great job, and what you're feeling is the same for mothers/fathers/caregivers all over the place. Including me!
