  • I hate having an alarm clock, IE my daughter. She gets up somewhere around 7:30 to 9. Usually 7:30 >:( I didn't work for half of my pregnancy, it was so nice to be able to sleep in till noon. It was a real shock when she got here.

    I also have sleep apnea that I've had diagnosed but haven't been treated for yet, so I'm completely fatigued during the day. Every day, all day, for years and years and years, I've had this problem. I also have depression and anxiety, probably stemming from my stupid ass sleep apnea. Hopefully I'll have more energy and will be happier once I get it under control.

  • I was a morning person before so I actually love the mornings with her! What I dislike most - I have two things - one, the fact that I worry all the time now and two, the unsolicited parenting advice! When I ask for advice, great. But when I don't, people need to trust I'm doing a good job!

  • For me...its feeling like I could do better. I am one of those people who never feels like I am doing a good enough job.

  • Oh yeah, that's a great point. As if I didn't hate myself enough BEFORE I got pregnant, now I have all these people that I don't even know criticizing my parenting! Great! Reeeeeal self esteem booster there.

  • I hate having to be the sensible one all the time. I want to yell at my teens and say - "inside my head I'm still 17 too" I sure don't feel old enough to have this responsibilty - frankly couldn't believe it when they handed me my son and told me to go home and raise the poor thing. And yet... 15 years later he's still here and they didn't ask for him back... go figure!

  • The mess. I had to live in a extremely messy house growing up and now I really dislike being in a messy cluttered house.
