Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

Sometimes I hate being a mom.

Sometimes it's just so hard.

Before I was a mom a felt as though I FULLY appreciated my 'non-mom' status.  I APPRECIATED the fact that I could go and have dinner with friends whenever I wanted.  I APPRECIATED the fact I could pick up and GO on a weekend trip with moments notice.  I APPRECIATED the fact I could run a bath and read a 'rag-mag' in bubbles while listening to Dido.  I APPRECIATED my freedom to do what I wanted, when I wanted.

Yup...all SELFISH stuff (from a 'mom's perspective')....but it's ALL GONE..all the 'selfish' days are gone.

Now that my child is here and is 3 years old, there are days I just want to say ENOUGH ALREADY....I just don't want to BE "Mom" today!!!!!  I want to be ME for, like, 2 seconds.

Ohhhhhhh......he just took my face in his hands and said "Hey....luv you Momma"....

 

Forget everything else I said......he melts my heart.  Damn kid.

No kidding!

My favorite is when I am proud of something he's done (shared, gone potty, cleaned up, listened).....he says (almost asks) "Momma soooo happy!?!?"

I exclaim...."YES!   Momma sooo HAPPY!"

 

 

Damn kid.

Motherhood is certainly an experiment in conflicting emotions!!!

I've been there too! No worries, you're not alone. I think these thoughts cross every mommy once in a while and it's not because you don't love your kid, sometimes we are just exhausted. Mommies happen to be human too and we need brakes and time outs!
