Am i a bad mom? I have two girls ages 2 1/2 and 10 months! I love themto death but i have absoloutly no patience with them, i yell at my two year old for any little thing and get angry at my 10 month old for crying...i just want to cry sometimes when things start getting crazy which is at least like 3 times a day! I feel like a horrible mom, like im repeating the same mistakes my dad made with me and my sisters, he would say he loves us but not have any patence with us! Am i a horrible mother or do all or at least some mothers experince this feeling?

If you think about it though spending money on your emotional wellbeing is thinking about the family as well!

Yes maam, we just our really low on funds right now, I hate to ask my husband for that money to be spent on me, I know he prob wouldn't mind but that would just be an extraweight and thought on my shoulders of taking away money that could be spent on things the family needs.

Have you ever considered depression? I was like that after my 2nd child(have 6 now). It turned out I had suffered post partum depression. As long as I am on my meds, I am doing fine.

Thank you vikki!! I am overwhelmed and in turn i just get frustrated! Keeping a journal is a good idea! I am currently living with my mil while my husband and i build a house and she helps me alot with my girls, which i am so grateful for. But somehow i still get so frustrated with them for petty stuff, im not even with them all day. I will def try keeping a journal!

No your not a horrible mom you care about your kids very much or you wouldnt be reachiing out to ask for advice! You sound like you are perhaps overwhelmed is it possible to ask for help from family and friends so that you can get a break?

You said that you think this behavour comes from your father, the good news is that behavour is learned so therefore you can do something about it to change it!

Maybe keep a journal to write down all your frustrations so that you are not keeping them all inside?
