Guilt is a common go-to emotion for moms, but it shouldn't be!
Moms deserve a break too, it's just science -- quality alone time every now and then is essential to a happy and healthy life!
But as for Audrey Roloff, well she is experiencing some intense mom guilt (again!) due to her recent book tour.
The Little People, Big World star took to Instagram on Monday admitting that her recent travels to promote the launch of her new book, A Love Letter Life, left her missing daughter Ember.
And even led to her experiencing a serious case of "mom guilt," according to Pop Culture.
Audrey, who shares one-year-old Ember with husband Jeremy Roloff, left on her week-long tour last week.
"Finally home with Ember girl. She had so much fun with Gigi and Papa but we missed her like crazy," Roloff captioned the sweet photo of her and her daughter together at last.
"I'll be honest... I felt the mom guilt start to creep in at times while we were gone," she admitted to her fans.
But luckily a good friend of the Always More creator reached out and offered some kind advice to the worried mom.
"She said, 'when we leave our children for small stretches of time with people that love them so well, it teaches them that they are safe and loved even when mommy and daddy are not around,'" Audrey recalls.
Those words completely changed Audrey's perspective and she began to see the time apart as a gift to Ember, saying, she will "eventually blaze her own trail in this world without me."
"It is just another reminder to me that I am NOT in control, and that God's past faithfulness demands my present trust," she concluded.
But she is still beyond excited to be back in Oregan.
"All this to say... there really is no place like home."
Although she was initially experiencing some regret over her short trip, many of Roloff's followers naturally offered their love and voice of support.
"Definitely an amazing perspective most parents need to hear. What a wonderful reminder," one fan wrote.
Another acknowledged that leaving a child "has been my hardest thing of all as a mama, but precious women have spoken this over me over and over again! Praises for that!"
Writer Danielle Walker even chimed in saying, "Coming home to them is so sweet too."
Prior to leaving for her latest tour, Roloff confessed that she "broke down" before having to leave and that she had been trying to "get a little extra cuddle time in." (aww)
But now, we are all cheering as the adorable mother-daughter duo is finally reunited once again.
Until mom's next get-away!
It will get easier with time, and soon enough this redhead beauty will be begging for some more momcation trips.
