  • At times when I have had a crazy day, I do feel slightly like I wished I would of waited. I WOULD NOT change any of it for the world though. I love my lil one with all my heart and its not his fault I feel this way.. Mainly only when I need to things that I cant with dragging my lil one along. So yea, I think all moms have those days though. They may not say it, but sometimes everyone feels it.

  • Mostly during the pregnancy part when I feel really sick, I find myself asking "why did I do this again?"

  • honestly No, and I was always one who never thought I would end up with any. . . But I can't even imagine how I would live without my DD. . .she means the world to me. . .does that make me sound like a kook? But it is true and honest.

  • I feel horrible for what I am about to say. I LOVED children-before I had one. She is 6 months. There are days-like today where I just wanna throw her into the wall bcuz she won't stop crying! Sometimes I will stuff her pacifier into her mouth and hold and push it there while she screams but then I snap back and take it out. I will yank her up by the arm and toss her down on the bed (not throw) I dlont hit her but I need help before I do something horrible.

  • anon13 don't feel bad. . . people are going to judge away and let them. . . it can be stressful raising a baby and especially trying on your patients. . . I know my DD was no angel at that age and I was frustrated to no end. . . but try please not to be forceful with your baby. . . I know it is hard. . . but if you like, I am here for you. . .it might not be much, but sometimes just talking to someone helps a tremendous amount.

  • whos comment are you talking about kirs?

    Answer by BUSYLOVINGHIM at 12:56 AM on Mar. 3, 2010

  • Sometimes I do. Only because my health issues have made it so hard sometimes. My daughter and I are best friends and I love her dearly but when I can't do something for her it makes me sad. I recently had back surgery and had to wear a brace for three months. She used to say "mom I can't wait until I can hug you like a girl needs to hug her mom". It breaks your heart. Sometimes I wonder if she would have been better off adopted by someone else.
