Overwhelmed By Little Monsters

Sometimes I feel so overwhelmed by being a mom. And to be brutally honest, sometimes I hate being a stay at home mom. The days I hate are the ones that my kids are being difficult and I feel like no one appreciates everything that I do and all that I have sacrificed to be a mom. I know that a 3 1/2 year old and a 19 month old are incapable of those things but when you're are having a bad day common sense has no place in your mind.

What keeps me going thorugh the difficult times are those moments when I see my kids smiling at me with so much love in thier eyes- it just makes my heart melt. I suppose when I grow old and the kids are grown I will forget the times where I wanted to  lock myself in the closet and sit in fetal position crying and only remember the times where my children were little sweetie pies.

And then hopefully my children will have childen of their own- and hopefully thier children will be little monsters and terrorize them. Then, me as the grandmother, can love and spoil thier children but can send the little monsters back to thier parents. I am sure my mom hoped the same of me.

  1. Ah, the Mother's Curse. Just make sure to rescind the curse if you like your children's spouse. My MIL (whom I love) placed the Mother's Curse on my husband, and rightfully so, but now I'm stuck dealing with it too! My mother will tell you I was a good child growing up (we won't go into my teen years here) and it seems very unfair that I'm getting penalized for my husband's behavior growing up.
