Re: At times I'm jealous....VENT

As a mom of 7, I know what you mean. It's hard and the big ones do get cheated a little, don't they? And so do us moms!! I would love to have a mother/daughter day with my oldest dd, but with all the little ones around and dh working most of the time, it just doesn't happen. So to you and me and all the other moms in our situation.

Re: At times I'm jealous....VENT

I am a very jealous person I envy alot of things that alot of people have. I do get jealous of my old friends who are now in collage or having fun with there lives while I am 23 and have 2 kids and no life. But I chose to keep my children so I have to deal with it. I love tham and wouldnt trade them for the world, I just wish I could have waited a few more years.

Mama, I know it is hard, but they are just being young ones, they don't mean to annoy and upset you - they are children. Please don't take your frustration out on them like the situation you described

I am 35 and have an almost-one year old; my close friend is 36 and her daughter goes to college next year ... so I know how it is to be in such a different spot than others your age.

I am sure you are a good, loving mama, and you will have some time just for you someday!
Where did she take her frustration out on the kids?

Re: At times I'm jealous....VENT

Ahh, mama, I understand where you are at. I just turned 44, my oldest 2 are 22 & 18, my youngest 2 are 4 & 2. I also have 2 dss who are 14 & 12.
Plus I have an in-home daycare that I started when my now 18 yr old was 3. So, I am around kids all the time, and when they are not needing me, there is dh wanting my attention and some days I wish for just a few moments to myself to read, sew,relax,etc.
But, I really do appreciate all I am blessed with. My sweet little ones give me a reason to keep busy! They are my demolition duo! I know from my older ones that this time goes so fast.

Re: At times I'm jealous....VENT

Kudos to you for raising that many kids. I think I'd be nuts by 5 kids, heck I'm nuts most days with only 3. Can any of the olders stay home to watch some of the youngers so that you can enjoy the game just for your ds? I'd say plan a special day for each one every so often and then others will just have to make it work without you. Do you homeschool?
