You have a mommy outlet.....US! You are depressed. When the kids are asleep or at school, etc. take that time to do something quiet for yourself. Pamper yourself even if that means reading a good book, painting your nails, or watching a tear jerker movie. We all need that special time for us. You are a good mom. Praise yourself every once and a while.
You're not doing anything wrong - u r a mom. It's a full time job. I've been in the same boat - hugs.
Thats exactly why I am on CafeMom! I live in a rural area and in an emptynest. Welcome!
your not doing anything wrong. Being a single mom 24/7 can get to you after awhile. Do you have any family or someone that can babysit every once in awhile so you can have some time for yourself?
You need to set those kids on a routine and get them all in bed super early so can enjoy some you time. Drink a glass a wine, turn on the TV and try to simply relax. I have never been more happier since I welcomed early bedtime in my house lol My son who is 5 yo is in bed by 7 pm, the latest is 7:30 p.m.
sorry, could not help over the title!
