Yes, I am that Mom…on the edge! My 2 year old son constantly tests my authority and patience. I know every child goes through this stage, but my starves! Can I get a break? I feel like I’m on the verge of going crazy. Now don’t get me wrong, I love my child, but sometimes I just want to scream (can you tell that today has been a challenging one?).
I was trying my best to multitask: cleaning house, playing with my son, working on all of my business, and relax (HA!). Needless to say, I was doing way too much at once. So every time my son didn’t listen to me, it drove me CRAZY! I know he’s going through a phase, but I’m wondering when will it end?
Lately, I feel like I am getting more frustrated with him, but I know that it’s a combination of the stage he is in and my workload! I do feel like a horrible mom at times, but my loving hubby reminds me that I’m a good mom that goes the extra mile for her son! Sometimes I lose sight of that, but i have a feeling we (Moms) all do!
I think it is important that we (Moms) remember that we can only do so much in a 24 hour period. Though we seems like we’re supermom, in reality, we’re not! It’s hard to grasp that sometimes when you have so much on your plate. This is where I find myself. I have so much that I’m doing that it is eating at my nerves. Nothing is my baby’s fault. All he wants to do is play. And when he doesn’t have my attention, he does stuff that he know I won’t approve of just so he can get my attention.
So I cannot fault my sweet Jayden. I have to find a perfect schedule to get on (and stay on). This way I don’t have to feel guilty. I have an idea of the schedule that I want to get myself on; I just have to implement it.
I no longer what to be a Mom on the edge! How do you manage everything in your life?
