I LOVED what Trinity Luty said. Us full time stay at home moms have it the hardest. I have a friend who has a baby boy and she works for the county and kinda told me I'm lucky I don't have to work etc. She has it so hard cuz she has to work..but I told her that at least she has breaks! even though she is working, she still has that time and her lunch break..the quiet drive home..I'm now 3 months preggers with my 2nd kid and who knows how it will go. i think i might need to hire a cleaning crew or something..lol..If i'm doing laundry everyday, im so anticipating how it will be with another addition..We are all lucky we can stay at home full time with our children, we sure as hell deserve lots and lots of credit for it! = )

Oh you are SO not alone. I have a 4, 2 and 8 month old twins (all boys) Some days I want to pull my hair out...We don't get a break as mothers, it's 24/7, 365 days a year. It really is a thankless job at times and you wonder why did I have kids again?? Then they wrap their little arms around me and say I loe you Mommy...then you forget and just hug back..lol At least you scream into a pillow, so many kids are abused because their parents can't handle their frustration in a healthy way..so don't feel bad and I'm sure your an amazing Mother!!!!

I have a 3 and a 2 year old little girls. One going through her terrible twos late and one coming into the terrible twos with quite the temper! Boy can those two test my patients and somedays it just runs out and I have to find a way to just walk away for a few moments to compose myself again! I feel everyone's pain as I don't really have much of a relief as my fiance lives two and half hours away for work and am pretty much doing on my own. Just hang in there and hopefully knowing we are not alone helps me and others get through it!

I feel that way at least once a week. My husband is in the Military and works 14-16 hour days so by the time he comes home it is time to put our 15 month old, Lillian to bed. Lately I have been asking him to help more with this so I can have a few minutes to myself and they get thier time as well. I find if I don't have any alone time I start taking my frustrations out on my family and that is no good. It is okay to let out your sream if it makes you feel better... You are not alone!

Quoting Trinity:

I have three boys; my oldest is almost 5, 2 year old, and 5 months. There are many times during the day when I have had as much as I can take at one time. If you think about it, people who go to work often get two breaks and a lunch during the course of an eight-hour workday. They need time away from work to relax and "reset". Moms rarely, if ever, get breaks like that. I don't know when the last time I ate an uninterrupted meal in the last five years! It is important for us to remember to take time for ourselves, even if it is just a moment to take a deep breath. It makes us better moms when take time to refresh ourselves. You are definitely not the only one, and you should feel no guilt over needing to release some pent up emotion.



That is so very true! I find it helps to tell my husband when I'm having a really long/tough day and say "look I need a break!" he may of just worked 3 hours of overtime but I can't remember the last lunch break I had. even if I just walk out to the mailbox the fresh air and quite do wonders. So kuddos for the very good point!!!

Oh boy...are you kidding I do that at least once a day! I also try and lock myself in the bathroom for five minutes when my husband gets home but I can still hear them through the door. Don't worry I haven't met a Mom yet who hasn't needed to scream!

Quoting Allison:



I have a 2 and almost 5 year old and it is a constant and mentally challenging job. But for every 9 horrible moments during the day there is a moment that makes it worth it.  We just have to remember they are children, not mini adults that deserve all our patience. This is a great time in our lives to relive our childhood and to play and be silly. Play with play dough! Build a fort! It's a very very very hard and and unappreciated job but it will be worth it later. At least that's what I keep telling myself..;)






yes that is so ture
