I don’t always like my kids

Home

Don’t get me wrong, I love my boys. But there are moments where I just don’t like them very much. Moments where I go a little crazy and act like a banshee. Moments where their shouting and running up and down drives me bonkers.

I know, I know, I got myself into this situation. And I’m not complaining about that, not really anyway. I’m just saying it like it is, I don’t always like my kids. And there are days where I just want to give them away for a few hours, or run away, or get into a box and hide away from them. Please tell me I’m normal and I’m not the only person that has ever felt this way.

They test the limits.

They throw toys and kick the ball in the house.

They fight with each other. All. The. Time.

Matthew is constantly pinching Ethan. Or Ethan is pulling Matthew’s hair.

Ethan still doesn’t sleep through the night. And we only just started potty training.

The tantrums…..

I don’t regret having children. I don’t regret my boys at all. I love them with all my heart and I can’t wait to add to the craziness with this little bunny in my belly. But it’s normally when I’m tired, stressed out, busy cooking, etc that I feel like hiding away from the madness and drinking wine straight from the bottle. So I guess I need to work on being a better person so I dislike my kids less and the moments where I don’t like them are less.

Or I’m just human. An overworked, stressed out mom who’s doing her best after a full day working, pregnant and exhausted, who just wants to come home to her children and love on them and ask them about their day.

Just to add, there are moments where I don’t like my husband either…..

  1. Ooooh – the last comment applies to me more than the rest, hahahahahaha. You’re normal! And I think that the fact that we work full day adds to the exhaustion 🙁

    1. Lol I think a lot of us would relate to that last comment. Yes, exhaustion is definitely a major cause of frustration and then when you add sleep deprivation, it just multiplies the madness 😀

  2. Absolutely normal! Now if more women could be as honest about our motherhood challenges the world would be a better place. Give yourself a break….this motherhood thing is tough, and not always pretty.

    1. Urgh, they don’t warn you about the challenges of motherhood. But in all honesty, I’d rather go through the challenges as they make me appreciate my boys and the wonderful times together so much more. Thank you for reading 🙂

  3. You’re so normal – we moms have to put up with all the crap of our kids and husbands. The thing is that it’s not like you don’t like your boys sometimes – you don’t like some things that they do and some moments with them. I don’t like some moments with my hubby – like when we talk about money 🙂

    1. Yes exactly that! Thanks Melissa. It’s definitely the moments and some of their actions that I don’t like and not that I actually don’t like my kids or my husband.

      PS: I don’t like when we talk about money either 🙁
