Do you ever feel like that all you ever hear is screaming...it seems like when one of my kids stops screaming the other one is screaming about something....I don't think I even know how to have an adult conversation anymore....I catch myself saying stuff like I got to go potty instead of bathroom or whatever even when my kids are not even at the same place i'm at.......LOL

Anyone else feel this way?

oh my, i feel your pain. well, to an extent at least- i only have one kid and my energy and patience levels are the main reason i don't want anymore. i personally think you're a saint for having a toddler, an infant, being 9 months pregnant and still having a head on your shoulders at all! i could never do it, so big kudos to you =).

i am in the same situation as far as not getting to get out much (it's winter where i live and we had a high of 13 degrees F today!) and my daughter's father works from 11-7. she wakes up at 9 and goes to bed at 8 so he only spends about 2 and 1/2 hours with her 5 days of the week (1/2 hr commute) and probably an hour of that time is eating. it is kind of nice though when he has a day off she is glued to him cause she misses him so i get a bit of time to myself =).

i also have the issue of talking in child-speak in adult conversations but what disturbs me more is when i think of myself in 3rd person as mommy (e.g.-i'll think to myself "mommy has to go potty" instead of thinking "i have to go to the bathroom") LOL. i think all of us SAHMs are there to a point. you are sooo not alone =).

Do you live in my house? LOL I do feel this way and I long for adult conversations all day long. I can't wait until daddy gets home so I can talk about his work day. LOL noticed I call my husband daddy!! I often do call him that. You are not alone, I feel exactly the same way!

I feel like that probably more than I should. I think it's normal in one way or at least that's what I tell myself. I find I yell at my kids more often especially when I'm stressed, tired, etc. Sometime I just what some QUIET and SPACE and .... It does get overwhelming. Even if you can get out once in awhile. Some days just blend into another. Anyways, don't feel so alone or at least you aren't alone. Good luck and hope all goes well.

Quoting sheryl:

yeah, i think all stay at home mom feel this every once in while! if i wher you i would try to get out more and going to things like mommy and me! plus, it winter so i think us moms are going to hear screaming more cause they get out less. kids love to run and play! you know how most parents say don't run! but what i do is clear a peace for mine and play with them like tag. just stuff like that. then if they are still crying i put them in there room. when i now nothing is wrong. they now mommy well not put up with them not being good! i do catch myself also saying thing like potty instead of bathroom too. i think it normal for moms who stay home! hope thing get better! i know i can't wait for summer!lol


Sheryl, I am pregnant with my third child...due any day now...if he doesn't come by monday morning i'm being induced...so i'm sure it doesn't help that my 3 1/2 year old and my 1 year old know that something is up b/c i'm always tired so I don't play with them as much as I did... and I know I am getting aggrivated with them a lot more than usual... I'm hoping that after baby Alex arrives things will get back to as normal as possible and I will quit feeling like this as much... It also doesn't help that my husband works everyday and doesn't get home until the kids are asleep, taking one of my vehicles and my mom is going through a divorce and has to work everyday taking my other vehicle so we don't get out much... and it's to rainy and cold outside to take them outside to play... On top of everything we are currently moving into a bigger house...that we just got through remodeling... I have found myself going into a slump and letting my three year old watch cartoons all day everyday and doing numerous things that I wouldn't normally let her do, which I know isn't good.... The list goes on and on...so i guess feeling like a bad mom doesn't help the situation any...
