Animal mothers eating their young.

While I jsut found this as a good title, im ready to join if my kid doesnt calm the heck down. Im completely at my witts end with his constant screaming. Dad is at work so hes no help, and when he does get home I dont want to leave him alone with him bc then I will feel guilty, DH doesnt get that I want him to offer to take Aiden off my hands for a while so I can go and read a book, or just go out for a few hours. Yes I understand he works, but heck thats 9 hours away from me and Aiden and Im with Aiden 24/7. He is really driving me nuts right now. Ive never really been one for having a ton of patience but right now its just particularly bad in my trying to keep my mind level. PS - this is a vent, Id never eat or harm my child.

  • Well I think you need to ASK and not wait for him to offer although I do understand the guilt you are talking about which prevents me from having even one single hobbie or shopping trip alone.. but I am also working outside the home so I am sure its only multiplied for you.. Good luck!

  • Hes just been screaming for hours at this awful annoying pitch. Just because he isnt getting his way. Ive had a loonng week and this on top of it isnt any easier.

I would make myself an appointment for a manicure tomorrow and tell your DH that he will be having Daddy and babytime tomorrow, my friend has a very hight maintence toddler and she just told her husband, I need 5 giyrs a week to myself, so you pick it, but I am getting it!
