Any SAHMs just get down

I am a SAHM and have been for 9 years now. I think being an at home mom can effect ones self esteem socially, with friends etc and just overall. The one thing I am most confident with is being a mom. My six year old said something that broke my heart. He said after I put his lego creation back in the lego box, that he wished momma didn't exist. He didn't say this to me directly, but to my oldest. It just broke my heart when I heard. I have just been a mess. My husband said he really doesn't even know what he said. Part of me thinks that and part of me isn't sure. It has just knocked me and I have been so sad and down. Just doubting everything right now. Anybody else feel this way?

Children are very perceptive. maybe he feels suffocated by your presence. Is he in any kind of recreational group, We plan on putting our kid in taekwondo so that he can get away from me a few hours a week outside school. Or a sports team if he wishes. Kids need space I remember myself at 6... I felt suffocated and would purposely miss the bus after school so I had to walk the hour walk home. Or I would purposely throw a tantrum so I would get sent to my room. I would apologize later...after I had my alone time.

So my advice is to give them space, put them in a group like a soccer team or put them in a group like boy-scouts.
