What parenting moments do you regret from 2013?

Did you yell too much? Forget a special birthday tradition? Over react and then regret it?

I honestly feel that I was a total mess up most of the year :/ I yelled, I overreacted, I slept more often than I spent time with my four year old. I was pregnant for most of the year (I have a 3 week old) and my pregnancy was very stressful and I had many issues at work that unfortunately I believe I took out on my poor little girl. Now that the baby has come I am balancing out hormonally and I have made an attempt to do better by my daughter but I do feel like a big, fat meanie.

I always feel like that after a pregnancy. Remember that you probably weren't as mean as you feel you were and kids are very forgiving. 8)

hmmmmmm....

I think we should have been more consistent with the potty training. It's harder with two kids than it was with one. Maybe if I had worked more on it earlier in the year I wouldn't be doing so much laundry now. LOL

I have a bad habit of rolling my eyes when my kids do something wrong but then they roll their eyes and I get on to them for it. Mommy needs some structure

I regret yelling as much as I have but I'm 36 weeks pregnant so that has a lot to do with it. Also I regret not keeping on top of potty training. .. dd is 2 and she knows everything about it just doesn't want to sit long enough to go... we will get it one day!

I yelled way too much and spanked instead of timeouts. -_- I've changed my ways though since we got into counseling and I see a difference in behavior. Still have an awful case of mommy-guilt though.
