I am frustrated because being a mother comes with alot more than you realize....... Dont get me wrong, i dont mind getting up in the middle of the night to change kaidens diaper, feed him and comfort him as he drifts back to sleep.... then having to get up at 6 am , my him and myself ready for daycare/work then coming home and having to ask my husband for 15 min to myself while i take a shower and the response i get ( what, why, im busy) he claims to be joking...but i dont think its very funny watching him sleep through the night while im up barely keeping my eyes open or on the weekends when he goes riding his 4 wheeler and i cant go bc somebody has to watch the baby..

i get up in the morning and work too as well as all through the night...and am expected to come home, cook dinner, keep the house clean and the laundry done.........since when did being a parent become a "mothers job" Shouldnt parenting be something both do equally? I dont understand why it is to be assumed that im the one who has to stay home with the baby... Wouldnt it be nice to say hey, im going out with the girls tonight and your gonna stay home and watch the lil one? At least thats what men do to us.....I am just frustrated bc im tired of men assuming they can do whatever they want bc we will do our job bc we are MOM!

 and i dont dare mention my concerns bc the comment i get back  " well you were the one who wanted a baby the most" isint that funny?    are there other moms/wifes out there experiencing the same thing??

Jun. 3, 2008 at 9:42 PM Yeah... wish I would have known what I know now back before kids... Probably would have waited longer, and definitely would have waited longer before the 2nd. The past year and a half that we've had two kids has been the hardest, saddest, lonliest time of my life. Which is why I'm on here....but then again, I write, which makes me feel better, but no one comments and barely anyone even looks at the post... being a mom is a thankless, neverending, underappreciated, neverending, tiring, neverending (did I say neverending?), job that you can't quit or take a lunch break or vacation from.
