Are you bored with being a mother?

The cooking meals is my main complaint and getting them to eat it is what wears me out.

  • No I'm not bored at all. There is always something new everyday.

  • I hear ya!! I'm a single mom and my kids are 10, 6, and 4. Yes, I sometimes feel burned out on the whole Mommy thing. I love them dearly, but the cooking and cleaning up after them really sucks sometimes!

  • i dont know that bored is the word, but there are times in which i miss a part of myself..or feel like i can do more than just be a mom because sometimes being a mom is easy..i think if i had octuplets it'd be more of a challenge...sometimes I just need something more to define myself if that makes sense. I love my kids so much and will never regret having them, it's just being a mom takes a lot of your self away at times.

  • I wouldn't say bored is the word for me but sometimes I miss not having to feed and clean up a baby constantly.

  • Bored, no. I am too busy for that. But some days I feel sort of like an invisible servant.
