  • Transitions into another stage. Each time my DD switches the way she acts such as attitude/sleep or something of that nature I get all messed up for 1 to 2 weeks! When she turned 1 she completely changed into a toddler overnight I walked around for 2 weeks not knowing what to do! The other month she hit some tantrums terrible twos at 16 mo it took me a week to adjust. Now at 18 mo shes got a whining thing going on & OMG sometimes I just want to walk out of the house & leave! I cant take the whining but give me a few more days & I'll have figured it out. I just hate feeling like I'm lost & thinking "I'm not fit to be a mother"!

  • definitely lacking in the patience area.

    I am trying to learn how to be more patient, but I still have to give myself a couple of time outs a day to keep from wanting to shoot myself in the

  • I'm lazy. Not really, but I feel lazy. I'm a SAHM and I feel like my house should be clean and it never is. I don't even care anymore. The mess will still be there when the kids are older! I just hope they don't get EColi!! j/k.... it's not that bad!

  • Not knowing what the best method of discipline is. I already decided on NO spanking...but where do I go from there? I don't want her to be a self-absorbed terror, but I also don't want her to be CONTROLLED. Am I making sense?

  • Def patients and expecting too much from him when he is not ready for it. Also, I have a bad habit of comparing him to others in every area. I shouldnt do that.

  • Staying clean. I am the mom who freaks over toys in the living room and trashy rooms. (I am not speaking on a toy here or a toy there, I mean CLUTTER).

    I also struggle with letting them be. I smother them. too much.We have a fenced back yard and they can not go on the sides of our house to play. They have to be in the back where I can see out of the bay window. I hold their hands everywhere we go. I lost it when I turned around in the car one day and my daughter unbuckled her seatbelt! I check on the several times a night before I go to bed.
    I lost 2 babies so I am afraid something will happen to them.
