I think all of us feel this way at one point or another.  I know I have had my ups and downs and I've been a single mother since my dd birth, almost 17 years ago.  It is hard doing it by yourself, my aunts old saying was "I will always LOVE you but it doesn't always mean I HAVE to LIKE you." 

With a teenager, I tell that to myself quite often.  Even though there are some morning, I'd like just run away or push her out of the car (that is a joke, just so I don't get accused of anything). :)

Love is a choice and sometimes not a very easy one to make.  I love my kids no matter what, even when I don't love what they do or have done.

I think a lot of people forget that love is a choice and this is why we have so many divorces in this world.  Sometimes you have to chose to love someone through the good, bad and the ugly.  It is no different for our children.

You should always love your kids no matter what. But likin them all the time is different. Like when my son misbehaves or throw his tantrums, I still love him but he drives me crazy with that ish

Haha, I absolutely love my sons...but sometimes they can make me so mad that I just want to run away from them.  I think this is something all moms feel at least once (if not many more times), whether they'd like to admit it or not.  I don't think it makes you a bad mom or anything...just normal.

 I don't feel forced in not loving my kids.  I will always love them.  But if they do something wrong, I have the choice to scold them.
