Have you ever gone through a phase where you feel like you just aren’t “momming” right?
I am constantly feeling overwhelmed, exhausted and short-tempered. I have a great kid, but let’s be real he is WILD. He has so much energy and is in his full-blown terrible twos. He is testing me any chance he can get and I feel like he is winning. More than once I have literally hid from him in my room, since I was actually at the end of my rope.
I feel like I am in a funk. One that goes from okay moments to why did I ever decide to have kids moments. I know I’m not alone. It’s hard being a parent and I know people right now are feeling what I am feeling. Yet, I feel so alone. My husband owns his own business and does some consulting work which takes him into the City a few days a week. I fully support him in what he does, it is just hard when the majority of parenting and house hold responsibilities ultimately falls on one parent.
The combo of a lot of solo parenting and my kid being super into mom right now, means that I rarely get a break. Even when I have a chance to sit and relax, I am the toddler play gym. By the end of the day I am so touched out I can’t even stand my cat sitting on my lap.
I know this is a phase. But I need to break out of this funk.
Until next time day dreamers.
