While the Blogosphere and Twitterverse was busy chatting about the Time magazine cover that asks us “Are you Mom Enough?” I spent a busy week trying to just find time to get everything done that I needed to. Am I Mom Enough? No, definitely not. I get mad when my husband brings one or both of our boys into our bed, and I only breastfed for four months. My boys know I love them, and I have not felt that attachment parenting would have been the best fit for our journey as a family. As a mom who went back to work before my boys were released from the hospital it was virtually impossible. If this cover had come out when my boys were infants, I probably would have had a nervous breakdown. The guilt that wracked me every time I left of every time that I was busy enjoying work and they were at home would have consumed me. I am glad that Jamie Lynne Grumet is happy with her choices. I am even glad that Time Magazine got us all talking about parenting, but I think that Lisa Belkin says it best in her article . Lisa I echo your sentiment. No, I am not Mom enough, and that is okay.
