Mom Confessions Mom Confessions

Sometimes I wish I wasn't a mom...

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
When things get really bad, and I'm so frustrated with my child, I'll just sit there and think "I wish CPS or someone would just come and take him, or I wish I could give him up for adoption!" Just so I won't have to deal with him anymore and my life can be back to normal again...
Has anyone else ever thought this? :(

Almost 9 months.

How old is he? You need to find a sitter.

No I have never felt like I didn't want my child. I do understand how a mom could feel this way though. You do need a break, you need to either find a sitter or family that can help out. What about your mother? Or an aunt? Being a mom is a hard job and sometimes we do need help and encouragement. I hope you can find someone who is willing to help and encourage you.

My aunt would probably help but my boyfriend wouldn't just let me drop our son off with her for no reason. He'd tell me to suck it up.

When my depression and anxiety got the best of me, yes. I thought my children would be better off in someone elses care. But it wasnt just my children I had that mindset with, I believed everyone would be better off without me in general.


I got help since and I havent been happier in a long long time.

I feel the same way sometimes too, and its usually because Im under a lot of stress that has nothing to do with him. -hugs- it does get easier with time though because you can always fnd a sitter, or take him to some playground and let him run around til he drops, etc. Find some quiet time for yourself

He needs to be more supportive, and if he cant, I would look on moving on. If you are dealing with deeper issues, such as depression or whatever- having a toxic nonsupportive spouse is only going to make you worse.

Honey, you have a reason. Mom's need breaks. If he gives you an issue about needing a break, you need reevaluate your relationship.

Well then there ya go----he can watch the baby while you get a break! Tell him you have a standing "date" with a friend to do something every week or every other week, then hand him the baby and leave. He can surely watch his own child for a few hours a week. If he feels you should "suck it up", then he should too.
