Re: I don't think I was cut out for motherhood...
I've been there. I can't tell you how many times I said I was going to drop kick the cat. She has the loudest meow and doesn't seem to start until I'm trying to put Coco to bed. Some nights I got so irritated with Coco's crying I had to hand her off to dh for her safety and my sanity. Then dh said he might not want any more children. That gave me a wake up call. If she's my only baby, I'd better savor every moment. And she's 13 mos old now and more interactive and I understand her wants and needs a bit better now, too. Don't get me wrong . . . she was cutting 3 molars at once about 3 weeks ago and since then 3 MORE teeth and some of that time was pure hell, but, I still feel totally blessed. But, I've been there mama, you're not alone.
