Parenting

Do you ever look back at your day and think to yourself, "Crap. I certainly messed my kids up today"?

I feel off. Not sure what's wrong. No patience. No energy. No desire to do much or talk to anyone.

I blew it with Little Boy today. Let's just say that my reaction (or overreaction as the case may be) will be fodder for many a therapy session.


Sometimes I think my kids deserve so much better than me.

I know just how you feel. I'm glad it doesn't happen often - I'd have ulcers.

Damn. I'm sorry that you can't directly blame your husband. Key word: directly.

You're a great parent b/c you knew you lost it.

On a daily basis I think to myself, "how much will this cost me in future therapy." It's sad really.

I think the same thing about 100 times a day. It happens to the best of it. Like DD said, you are great because you recognize it. Keep your chin up.

we all have those days. Anyone that says they don't is full of shit.
