I have kids. I did it for my DH he wanted them so badly and I thought I could handle it. I was convinced I wanted them also. Now I love my kids but I really hate being a mom. Every chance I get I step back and let DH do all the parenting or drop them off with my parents. I love them and I take good care of them. I just kind of regret being a mom... I know that so bad right? How do I change that. Is there a way to make yourself enjoy mother hood? How do I 'make the best of it'? I got 15 years to go!! They are good kids. I really have nothing to complain about...

It's definitely a hard job. Wont lie to you there. And if you think you only have 15 yrs to go, I got news for you. You cant turn it all off when they hit 18! If you are doing the best you can, you are providing for them & you really love them, then that's half the battle. Maybe a support group or therapist like another mom suggested would be helpful. If it's just that you dont like sitting & playing make believe- then join the club! I love to play board games or Uno, but I'm not into just playing. Hang in there mama. Try to find a little joy in each day w/ them.
