Do you ever feel guilty...

when you had a rough day with your toddler and you are counting down the minutes until nap time? Some days my toddler just pushes me to the limits and I just pray we make it until nap time. lol. I sort of feel bad but I guess one person can only take so much and be pushed so far in one day by one little person. Especially when I have a colicky 10 week old on my hands.

  • Yes, all the time, I HATE IT...

    My kids are older and live off of it!!!!! They say omg, why are you making me clean this whole room, I am tired, I don't feel good.. Blah zeedada...

    Everyday we can't be perfect do things the same way as we would like. If we take care of us, then we can be happy and take care of our kids. :)

  • Yes, everybody should have those feelings. I just take a deep breath and say act your age, then I realize well 13 months (my child) isn't very long to know much about anything. Try to suck it up and remember their experence really isn't that long being in this world.

  • nope, never. Some days she just works my nerves. She naps, then wakes refreshed, & we are both in a better mood.
