  • Toni says:
    all the time its all just to hard and to many mistakes can be made

  • Sue says:
    Just a few times; when your sleep deprived ;the long, long days at home just the 2 of you. And when Jack purposely does everything he can to push your buttons -like sending a bowl of rice across the room (one of the stickiest foods known to man) purposely spilling drinks!

  • Kirsty says:
    Yes, when they dont want to listen or do as they are told and are running a muck, but very realy. I always try to stay positive as it also helps to stay on top of any situation.

A old man gave me a really nasty look (Because im a "ÿoung mum") and it really got to me and i thought i can't do this i don't want to embarass my daughter like this.

  • Alison says:
    no

  • Bertie says:
    Only for a few minutes when I was in the hospital waiting on my husband to come pick us up to go home. I remember looking at my new baby thinking "What I am going to do with him when I get home?" The only baby I had ever really been around was my younger sister and she is only 4 years younger than me and I grew up in a family of all girls so I was really apprehensive about the fact that I knew nothing about little boys.

  • Joe says:
    yep, often!

  • Shelly says:
    Never, cause I always wanted to have children, so no matter how difficult some situations may be, I know I will get through them, life's never easy, doesn't mean you should give up, there is always a way to work through situations.

  • Marty says:
    i think every mother doubts herself....but deep down we always know we can do everything for our kids because we know them better then anyone else...

  • Nicole says:
    No I have had it very easy with Owen

  • Christine says:

  • Jessica says:
    Sometimes when money is tight

  • Samantha says:
    yes, all the time.

  • Laura says:
    Yes, at some point I think every mother has said this, maybe not to someone else but to themselves. I think on those days when you yourself dont feel up to par, and the kids are loud and not listening, it happens, but we pull through anyways. Being a full time mommy, I can't call in sick and don't get time off, so I stick to the schedule on the days I don't feel great. If I am really having a hard time, I read my bible, it clears my mind and gets me centered again.

  • Tracy says:

  • Rachel says:
    Yes, too often I wonder if I'm making the right decisions. This is a little person and I'm forming her life.

  • Alyssa says:
    Yes. The days when both my son and my step-son have completely different agendas and ideas of what they are going to be doing that day. The days we all don;t mesh are always the toughest.

  • Kyle says:
    Yeap

  • Janis says:
    There were times but they were brief. I'm not a quitter so as soon as those thoughts would start coming I would push them away and find more strength to belive that I CAN DO THIS! and I have to the point I believe I could do it again.

    Yes, when she gets really temperamental, but I think everyone does.
