Have you ever had a mommy meltdown?

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/02/16/mommy-meltdowns_n_821629.html

Oh yeah, more than once (and I only had 2 kids).  Once I called my mom, crying, "I'm going to have to give them up, I just can't take it anymore!"  Course, I didn't but I felt I was standing on the brink and *plink* that is all it would have taken to push me over the edge.

  • Almost daily. We are in family therapy for 12 hours a week and have been since June 2010. I can't seem to control my kiddos no matter how hard I try. I feel useless and everyday after they get home from school and they start punching each other, I feel like calling social services to come and pick them up! Somehow, everyday I get past the feeling and try a little harder to get through the day. We go on outings and still do fun stuff on the weekends such as skating or bowling...if they are good.

  • I have one every so often. I haven't had one in a while, so I guess it should happen any day now. Lol
