Dealing with Mom Fails...

I really hate being someone who thinks that if something good happens and you talk about it, it gets ruined.

You know where this is going!

How do you do it? I feel like the morning was all downhill - Baby Boy won't nap, Bink is driving me nuts, I'm tired, I'm hungry, I'm sick of the bad weather, I just want to go to sleep until it's 60 degrees everyday. It's a total Mom Fail day. I can't get out of my head that I'm not doing a good job and I'm probably taking it out on the kids by needing time away and having a shorter fuse than normal.

I know that taking time for yourself is NOT a bad thing, it is necessary, so maybe I should just shut my trap, give myself 20 minutes and hit the reset button. That's actually probably a really good idea. You guys are so smart!

How do you deal with Mom Fails? None of us are failing, but you know what I mean, when you feel like you just can't get anything right and want to hide, what do you do?

  1. I don't know if I have an answer for this. I feel like a failure a lot of the time, but as my son has gotten older, it's definitely gotten easier. There is a light at the end of the tunnel, but when you get there, you'll find yourself reminiscing about when they were babies. It goes by so fast. Sometimes, that's a good thing!

    When your husband gets home, see if you can get him to take the kids out of the house for a while, maybe to a relative's house. Then, sleep. Sleep sleep sleep sleep. Everything is worse when you're tired, and I KNOW you're tired. Being well-rested may not fix everything, but it will make everything a little bit easier to bear.
