Being a mommy can really suck ass.

It takes ALL my patience, and energy

I sometimes wonder what the hell I was thinking having another one.

It’s so freaking hard. Every day. And, I’m dumb enough to stay home. I mean, I’m with these kids 24/7. And, few people “get” just how hard this is. I don’t get breaks. I can’t pee when I need to. Most days I’m lucky to eat twice. I don’t shit alone. My job is seeing to two other peoples needs – no 15 minute break, twice a day with an hour lunch.

And, I never get “off” of work. When someone needs me, I’m there all the time.

It’s so draining. And, it’s not always that great. I honestly have more bad days than good. That’s just the way it goes. In those bad days are good moments, and I guess that’s what I still do this.

I’m now convinced that you have to be a little crazy to have kids, and even more crazy to stay home with them.

At the end of the day, there isn’t much of “me” left. I hate that. I miss me.

    Hugs to you. My baby is due any time now, and I’ll be in your situation. A 2 1/2 yr old and an infant. Oh wait, I also have 2 dogs (soon to be 3, I just have to find time for a 16 hr trip to pick her up)….

    Sometimes I wonder if staying home ALL THE TIME makes me a worse mom. We don’t have friends or family here that I can drop my kid off at for a night off. I just get to stew in the tantrums and the “thereness” of it all.

    Stay at home mom of children not in school, hardest job in the whole world.

    OH Jen I know it’s a full time job I wish Mike would understand that!! I won’t lie it’s hard at first but soon it will get easier once Pia hits that one year mark it will get easier.
