#1 I try to get rid of the kids as often as I can. They have the Rec center Mon-Fri, 12 to 4ish. Then they have bible study on Wednesdays and church on Sundays. And they play outside until 8:30ish most nights playing with the neighborhood kids. Whenever they're home too long, they just whine, fight and make messes. The thought of refereeing them and entertaining them all day long makes me want to scream!!!
#2 I hate cooking them breakfast. So I do a months worth of cooking and freeze it all. That way in the morning they can heat up their own pancakes, french toast, ect.
#3 I make them clean the house. Everyone has set chores (Walking the dog, cleaning the litter box, taking out trash, ect) so I'm not stuck cleaning everything. In spite of that my house always seems to be a mess :-(
#4 I hate playing games with them. Everything I do is wrong. No mom! You don't play like that! That and playing make believe just bores me to tears.
#5 I yell at them. I know it's bad. But some days I just get so overwhelmed with everything and I snap.
#6 I hit them. This is the one I feel most shame about. I'm strongly anti spanking but sometimes everything just builds up and Bubba or Audi will do that one thing and out of sheer frustration, I'll smack them.
#7 I don't want to be a mom. Sometimes I look around at the mess, the fighting and whining, the financial strain and I think, 'What am I doing?' Motherhood isn't suppossed to be like this...'Where did I go wrong?'
