My daughters only vocabulary lately seems to consist of snack, your welcome, I love you, outside, NO, your mean mom, go away or not nice. She also refuses to take naps most of the week(I'm lucky if I can rock her to sleep once or twice a week or if by chance we are running errands just maybe she will pass out for 30 mins). I have had such a lack of energy for the fits and I know that has a little to do with the pregnancy and absents of coffee in my system. (I MISS COFFEE! A LOT!!)
Another struggle lately is getting her to eat dinner. She would rather snack all day and night then eat dinner. I know I make the mistake of offering her snacks shortly after she declines dinner and I need to work on eliminating that, but it's so much easier not to fight her after a long day. I have also heard moms tell me it was so easy for them to keep there house clean with only one child and the more children they had the harder it is to keep there house clean. I'm terrified of this!! I can't keep my house clean with one child, how am I possibly going to manage cleaning a house with two?
Laila throwing a fit out at dinner one night.I think out of everything my biggest struggle is giving myself a break to be refreshed. I'm not sure why but I have this overwhelming guilt when it comes to thinking or planing a little time to myself. I feel like a failure that I can't handle my life all the time. I mean my whole life I wanted to be a wife and mom that stays home, takes care of her family and can do it all. I guess I have this vision of "Super Mom," but am having a hard time measuring up to her. That's probably because she doesn't exist. Recently I went out for dinner and a movie with a good friend of mine, we watched "Moms night out" (Post will be up soon about our moms night out) It was an amazing movie, I wish instead of Frozen being replayed 100 million times that Moms night out could be playing!
What have been some of your mommy struggles?
