  • I have days where all I can think is why would I choose to be a stay at home mom and WHY do I want more?

    But those moments pass and I can say overall I love being a mom, and especially love the fact that i"m lucky enough to be able to spend everyday with my monster of a three year old.

  • I used to babysit a little girl whose mom sincerly did not want to be a mom. she would leave her daugter at our house from 8am-11pm M-F & then have her dad babysit 24/7 on weekends. when I asked her why she didn't ever want to be w her daughter she said 'it was a mistake to get pregnant & I only kept her bc... well c'mon w a mom as hot as me my daughter is going to be gorgeous. But I hate babies so that's why I pay you to keep her & when she's a teenager ill be her best friend' made me soo mad! I've honestly considered looking into taking custody but been told numerous times by different people I wouldn't win custody bc there is no proof of neglect

  • Everyone has those days. And now that I'm pregnant, I have those days WAY more. I cry from it though cuz it makes me feel bad, but I can't help how I feel. It's normal to have those days. But I wouldn't make a change about it for the life of me. =]

  • I know someone who found out she was pregnant and immediatley terminated the pregnancy because she said there was no way in hell she could ever be a mom...

  • well those days.. everyone has those days.. IS CRAP!!!! my sister in law is a dead beat mom.. i hate how ppl think that ppl who say they "have those days" thinks that that makes it ok.. i never wanted to be a mom.. i dreadd the day i had kids.. BUT you grow up and realize the wonderful ppl you have made.. So to answer you yes, there are ppl who hate being a mom.. but to me it was a choice...

  • some days i ask myself why. at 25 i could be doing so many different things and i just recently started thinking about those things. im starting to long for doing more. im 25 two kids married with a career(a nurse) so i have money and want to travel and just get up and go and i cant and it sucks sometimes. lately its been making me depressed from time to time but all in all i have a great husband kids behavior could be much better but we have a nice home-make good money can pay our bills so all in all im blessed.

  • My mom was one of those moms. She hated being a mom and she reminded my brother and i of it everyday. And I because of it didn't know this kind of love even existed. When I heard my oldest sons heartbeat for the first time i was head over heels. Same with my youngest. And I don't think women who don't like being moms would be on a mom website. That would just be strange to me.

  • Sometimes I don' doesn't mean I don't want to be a mother's just a FEELING. I would never tell my daughter I don't want to be her mom or anything like that.

    We ALL have irrational feelings from time to time...even the moms who pretend like they don't.
