i can't even title this.


i am so with the paper mama on the hard mom stuff-i am possibly having the hardest mom week of my life. no joke.
rowan has pushed me beyond my limits and is still trucking. what is she like the energizer bunny of destruction and mama torment?!
i feel so guilty and so angry at the same time. i am pretty sure i know the why (jealousy and attention-not that she is being deprived in anyway. but obviously stella appears to have more with all the nursing, diaper changing, and etc.) behind all of this; but honestly at this moment in time i can't get over the disobedience and behavior to try and correct the problem (unhappy face). where is the manual for a two almost three year old little girl? so, basically i am venting to you cause i know you understand a little. thanks.

just sayin'; being a mom is hard. it's not always candy and butterfly sparkles...
but in the end i love her...all three of them to the moon and back.

ps, i just had to rub soap over every wood corner surface of their brand new bunk beds to try and hinder her from 'attention grabbing gnawing' and destroying. that has been my day...

Between you and Paper Mama, it's nice to know I'm not alone. I am not a stay at home mom, so I feel even more guilty for having "those days" but sometimes, you are right, it's not always rainbows and butterflies! :) Thanks for letting me know I'm not the only one!

Have a great weekend!

agreed being a mom is SO HARD. I admit I took an hour long nap on the couch while my son played on the floor and watched tv. I jumped up at any foreign noise but for the most part he didnt care. you do what you gotta do somedays

of course there's not a mom out there that can't relate!! when i'm having those days... i've found it's extra important for me to have some play time with levi. even if it's only 15 minutes... but i put all the to-do's aside, leave my phone in the other room, make sure the tv's off... and just PLAY and focus on making him laugh and giggle. it always helps to refresh me and give me some perspective. obviously he's not a toddler yet, and no doubt that brings a huge set of challenges that i have no idea about... but still, that's my short-term strategy at the moment. that, and getting some time out for myself while the hubs looks after the baby and does the cooking and housework for a whole saturday. i have to do that about once a month or else i start to drown!

I hope this weekend was better than last week. In just a couple weeks we'll get a nice break to be girly. Non-mommmy. :D
