Re: Am I a bad mom?

We all feel that way every once in awhile. I am a 20 year old mom to a 2 1/2 year old and a 9 month old, and there are times when I just sit down and cry. LOL! I have been mom since I was 17 years old, which I wouldn't change for anything in the world, but at the same time I just want some "me" time. When I get too overwhelmed though I have my DH take the kids for like 15 min. or so while I go in the bedroom and just lay down, and he also takes the kids while I get my hair done about once a month. LOL! This is my break for like an hour or so, and it really helps me to realize that I'm not just a mom but a woman too. I'm glad that you have your parents' help. Just let them know that you would like them to take your son for a little while (like an hour or 2) while you go out to a movie or to get your hair done. Just try to let yourself unwind and remember that the people that go out partying just get into trouble anyways. At least that is what my mom told me once when I told her I missed being "free" like other girls my age.

If that makes you a bad mom, then I think we're ALL bad moms.

No, we all feel like that sometimes.....All I want is one night when I can sleep and not worry about having to get up in the middle of the night. Remember what it was like to just wake up in the morning, not get woken up? Ahhh, for just 4 hours of ininterrupted sleep!
