Where would I be......

Somewhere between the crying and the feeling of total hopelessness I realize that I would be lost with out these two little guys. My day was filled with busy hands and feet and lots of tears. My patience ran thin and my anxiety level ran high today. These little guys are so wonderful. I love them dearly but I just found little joy in the task of motherhood today.
Do you ever have days where you just wish you had no responsibilities? Or am the only one.
I need to remember how blessed I am and how wonderful it is to be a mother. I love this quote: "Working mothers are guinea pigs in a scientific experiment to show that sleep is not necessary to human life." ~ Author Unknown. I feel a bit like this. Well, enough complaining it is almost time for the kids to go to bed. I will sit, I will fall asleep and I will start all over again tomorrow.

that is the way that some days feel. all work, no play. i am longing for 2 days of solitude. to sleep and read or just be. it has been a rough week of sickies here and my patience is thin as well. i feel a bit like a ticking time bomb. well, i too will sleep and feel better in the morning. a new day and a new start and a new attitude! :)

Sara, I remember all to well. Its so normal to have those hump days where everything just isn't fun. Warm weather is coming and that should help take a bite out of the ho hums. Hang in there.....

I kept telling Rob that after I was done nursing Ian I would take off to NYC with some girls and have NO RESPONSIBILITIES WHATSOEVER! Just remember you aren't the only one. Days are like that. I do remember seeing a funny thing...I don't want to spoil my surprize, I'll find it and blog it just for you hot mama! Hang in there!

The last 2 days were just like that for me I could hardly handle being the mom or should I say MOM!!! It helps to know that I am not the only one that feels this way.

Every mom feels like this so don't worry! It's completely normal. Sometimes venting it all out makes the rest seem a lot easier.

Do I ever feel unappreciated and tired? Yes.
You are right though, it's a tough job with a lot of rewards. Tomorrow is always better.

Definitely been there. Although little girls aren't nearly as high stress as little boys. (Just an observation) You have a good attitude though, you inspire me:) love ya Sara

I agree with Karen, every mom feels like this. It's nice to let it all out sometimes and also it's nice knowing that others feel like this too time to time. Being a mom can be really hard work!

We all hear you Sara. It's a thankless job, but we'd never want somebody else to do it for us. we all have our days. To have a whole day without any responsibilities! We'd probably have a hard time going back.
But hey, you and I should have a play date and let our boys release all that energy. give me a call that would be really fun.

Motherhood is about the moments of pure joy and love but there are a lot of difficult hours in between those shining moments!

Well, I know I am a few days late, but I sure do hope you are having a lot better days. We all have them, some worse than others...but just take a deep breath and enjoy something just for you at the end of the day :)
Talk to you soon!
