Guilt? Gosh, yes, I have it. I feel guilty because I let my dh talk me into getting our ds circed. (I am sure my MDC membership card will be revoked at any moment. : ) I feel guilty because I have not been as patient with my kids as I should have been. I have yelled and screamed and been unreasonable when I SWORE I wouldn't parent the way my parents did. I feel guilty because I didn't cloth diaper 100% of the time. I feel guilty because I didn't have the courage to have home births.
All I can do is keep trying, and remember what I feel good about. I feel good about breastfeeding each of my children for at least 3 years. I feel good about never letting them CIO at night. I feel good about being a SAHM. I feel good about waiting longer with each child to start preschool. I feel good about taking baby steps to healthier eating for the family. I feel good about learning more patience each day.
