My most shameful moment as a mother was when my husband decided to leave us. This was about 8 months ago. We weren't getting along and one day he just decided to pick up his stuff and abandon us. Ever since he did it, all I could do is sit and cry. I couldn't even take care of my daughter. And I know that this will sound awful, but at some point I even started thinking how easier it would be if I was alone. At least I wouldn't have to explain to my child why daddy's not coming home. But we lived through that and we're stronger now. And my daughter is a great comfort, even though she doesn't realise it much right now.
