I've reached shitty mother status.

Today is the first day I have EVER thought "God I wish I didn't I have children, I wish I could go out every once in a while"
It breaks my heart. I live my babies (3 years old and 1 year old) I'm a stay at home and have not been away from my baby's for more then a hour since my oldest was born (besides when my youngest was born)
I am just so numb right now.
Thanks for listening. Has anyone ever felt this way?

The first years are the hardest. Next year all three will be in school and I am excited and sad at this new chapter in life.

Sometimes I definitely need a break and some me time. But I've never regretted having kids. I think u need some time away from your kids.

I tried before and all I do is think about them, and then I feel like I'm just pawning them off and I feel shitty.

Don't be so hard on yourself. You are not a shitty mother. You need a break that's all

It doesnt make you a shitty parent. No matter what the perfect mothers of CM say. Its perfectly normal to feel this way if you don't get the break you need/want. Maybe you need to make a date night with your SO, or go out with some Friends, find a sitter.... Get out once in a while, it will do you good.


*hugs*

You should really go out. Do something super fun and distracting. Casino, bowlng, a concert.

Yes, when my girls were younger I stayed home with them. I didn't have any friends so besides my mom I only had my dh to talk too. It was very hard because your kids rely so heavily on you at those ages. It will be okay mama. Do you have someone that will watch your kiddos while you went out to dinner or a movie?
