  • I definitely have days like that, and I only have one kid! My marriage has been going through a terribly rough patch, though, and I think that is contributing to the majority of my feelings of inadequacy. All I can say is, "This too shall pass."...and I mean will!

  • Yeah, I get you. I have days where I just wonder how most of the responsibility has gotten dumped on women... what happened to the whole 50/50 thing? He helped make them! But, I do love my two wonderful children so much, I just remind myself how lucky I am to have them.

  • I have 5 of my own and on SD. I have days where I go for a gallon of milk, sit in my car, contemplate the horizon and the idea of driving and never looking back. I think we have all been there, it's normal. This too shall pass Mamma!

  • Yes, I think all of us have days like that. When my older 2 were little I would have a bad day and I would call my Grandma in tears, telling her what the little 'hellions' did-- she would laugh and say "Honey, this too shall pass. One day you will look back on this and laugh". Grandma has been gone for many years, and now when I have 'bad days' I swear I hear her whispering that in my ear.
    I hope tomorrow is a better day for you!!
