Did your temper get worse after having a child?

I used to be much more calm and laid back before having my son. Now it seems that my temper flares quite easily, especially with my DH. Did this happen to you?

  • Same as always, slow to burn but when it explodes, look out. Also, you mess with my son and there will be hell to pay.

  • After my first, my temper skyrocketed.  I was never the most calm person to start with.  Dealing with the hormones and crap, it made it a lot worse.  After I had my 2nd, that's when I started to calm down.  Slowly, very slowly, the years are calming me.
