  • First of all, you do not sound like a bitch. You do sound overwhelmed. Do you have a good doctor, maybe your OB or pediatrician. Talk to them and see what they think. You may be depressed or just plain fed up. It is very stressful raising small children, for anyone.

  • You do not sound like a b*tch. You sound very frustrated & overwhelmed and I'm sorry to say it like this but....'Welcome to Real Life 101". You sound like a million other moms out there. We all have these same gripes/complaints at some point or another. I have to say...Yes, your husband could definitely HELP out more! Having a family is a non-stop tremendous amount of WORK and it takes both people working together in all areas to keep your heads above water & things running halfway smooth. Unfortunately, some of us don't get much help from our spouse/SO (I didn't with my 1st husband). I don't know where this comes from really, considering that men generally consider the woman the 'weaker sex"..yet , they don't mind letting us carry 3/4 of the load by ourselves. He may work but there's work to do at home too. It's just the way it is. No wonder you feel your attitude has changed & your enjoyment is dwindling!!

  • dont balme your self ..every woman could or will pass by this ....... we are all one day a subject of what u feel righ now ,dont worry!! ... try to see freinds and talk .... avoid to reflect what u feel to ur kids or all the familly gonna be on same mod and that will not help you at all ... first in the morning start with writing a program what you should do during a ady ... and add some changes to your routine for expmple ... invite freinds for a coffee ... try to visit some site just near for hobbies .... if i dont liek drawin its not a problem try to find other inspirations ... you could fin more interesting things on u ;) ... the routine could be the first cause .... wish you a great day ;)
