Do you ever just feel like maybe you shouldn't be a mom of 2?

I've had one of those nights where I just feel very inadequate(sp?) as a mom to my 2 year old son b/c nothing ive done has helped tonight to care for my son when he is crying about absolutely nothing. I told my husband tonight that maybe we just shouldnt have another child even though down deep inside of me thats all i want is another baby. Just tonight has been awful. Have you ever just felt like this?

  • Yep, I have felt like that and still feel like that at times. I have 2 boys and boy are they a handful when things go wrong, but i wouldn't have it any other way.

  • I feel that way with one, which is why I'm not intrested in having another at the moment. Even though I want another.

  • Yes I had. But I would not change it for the world. I am so crazy I would love to have another.

  • All the time!! More than once a day. I have 2 boys. 26 mths and 9 mths. They are a lot to handle!! I feel like.... why can't I handle two kids?? What is wrong with me...?? But it's normal... so I'm learning. Just remember the saying "This too shall pass". Everything is a stage. Cherish each moment with your child because as this stage passes he will grow older and enter a new stage... until he is no longer your baby.

    And, go for the 2nd... I still want a third!! Hoping for a little girl this time. Good luck!

  • Absolutely! When I got pregnant with #2, I wasn't ready, but my dd was 6, so I thought, it can't be that bad... at least she can pretty much take care of herself.... HA!! boy was I wrong! I'm sure having two toddlers is more chaotic, but even with the age difference, I often wonder how I'm going to get through a day and whether I am damaging one of my kids somehow!

  • I think everyone goes through this but I wouldn't let your experience with your son sour your decision to have another child. Your children could be night and day....and your son could definitely adapt to having a younger sibling. Take heart mommy.
