Am I the only one who.. (may be long, I'm kind of venting)
I have a 2yo and 1yo DD. My parents are successful and my younger sisters (14yo and almost 16yo) do well in school and are well behaved and respectful young ladies. I feel like such a burden now that I am back home (my marriage is ending) and I hate it. I can not afford rent somewhere on my own and can not have a job because I'll be starting college in January and have no one to watch the girls because my sisters are in school and my parents both work. They don't make me feel like a burden, they are all very happy we moved back and I love having the help. Personally, I just feel bad. I am not on any kind of government funded assistance or anything and I buy milk, juice,diapers, wipes and other things (from child support for my oldest DD) that my daughters need/use up. In other words, my parents do not have to buy anything unless they WANT to. I clean the house while everyone is gone during the day and some days even make dinner. I'm trying really hard to be a good moms despite my age and where I stand in life. I am not on drugs, I do not smoke and have never been drunk/to a party of any kind, EVER. I'm just really trying to do well in school so that my girls will do well in life. I want my parents to be PROUD of me for a change.
Am I the only one who sits alone on a Sunday night thinking "this week I need to start being a better mom"?
