My 3 yo son is very hyper. The most hyper child I have ever known. Just yesterday alone he climbed and got biofreeze giving it to his sister, he wouldn't listen to ANYTHING I say. He does the opposite, he threw food on the floor, he spit in my face. There's more but I dont quite remember everything. He is just bad. But what is worse is that I lose my anger. I snap. And not just a little... More
With 2 kids (a toddler and infant) I have no time for myself. When they are both down for the night, I am exhausted. I always have these big plans- movies, wine, facial..but then I pass out. Feeling like I look drained, dull, boring..curious how you guys would spice up things for yourself. I want to feel alive again. Lol
Hello moms and dads I have a two year old that is out of control all the time. Hes only good at home. We just can't go anywhere any more. The minute we step out the door tantrums start. First is refusing the car seat, then once we arrive at our destination it's the stroller. We try walking but he'll hit and scream his head off. I just picked him up and got my lip split from his squ... More
My kids are 7 and 4. Weekends can be hell. We’re around each other every day, they fight, ask to watch TV 100 times a day, etc. Just today my 4 year old pulled a coffee cup off the table and poured cold coffee over her head, dropped her bowl of pudding on the ground (I yelled this time) and finally, stepped on the glass panel to my large photo frame. It was a project I was finally getting aroun... More
Have any of you mamas experienced PPD? Or any form of it? I was recently diagnosed with postpartum anxiety and depression and my doctors are planning on doing more tests for postpartum OCD as well. I’m not sure what to do or how to feel. I know it doesn’t make me a bad mother but i can’t help but feel lost and ashamed. Every little thing gets to me, a small mess on the counter, shoes not in the... More
My son is forever crying! He’s crying while crawling, eating, sitting, bathing, playing just all the freaking time! I am with him 24/7 and it’s literally driving me insane! The only time he isn’t crying is when he’s being carried and even then he still cries at times! I just can’t handle it anymore! He’s honestly starting to make me feel like I wasn’t and still am not ready to deal with him.
To all my fellow moms out there struggling with postpartum depression and realizing that Mother's Day, and motherhood, isn't living up to what they were hoping and is really, really hard. Try to take some time today for yourself and do something you enjoy, even if it is without your kids for a bit. Much love.
Not sure why but I've been feeling very lonely. A lot of my friends are single and not a mom, so it feels like I'm unrelatable and hard to connect now. I don't have anyone to talk to. I've tried reaching out but no one really responds or can talk for very long. I just wish I had mama friends. Please send some encouragement here. I just feel so alone.
I feel like parents always worry about SOMETHING... and being a first time mom, there are many things that I know I overthink. I’m seeking advice on my son going to daycare. He started going to a daycare center 2 days a week around 18 months old. Before that he was at grandma and grandpa’s 5 days a week. He’s transitioned into going 3 days a week.. and at the end of summer will be going 4 (ma... More
Any single parents with joint custody that could give advice on depression while away from your child? I do understand this can be personal but when I’m away from my daughter it leaves me with no motivation to do anything. I’ve tried activities, burying myself in my work, gym, dating (made it worse) and even getting a puppy. Nothing can break this void of missing my daughter To make it wor... More
Does anyone else get super frustrated at the end of the day? I’ve been trying to wash my hair for four days now. I have so much dry shampoo in my hair my fiancé thought I was getting grey hair. And honestly I totally snapped at my man for suggesting we go to a lemon festival and bless his heart he knew I was upset so he said “I’ll just ask you tomorrow” . But between my toddler still not talkin... More
What do you do for help around the house and kids?? Multiple tries to trust strangers in my house failed!! Would love to get some HONEST and EXPERIENCED comments Thank you
I have a 3 year old and I have been exhausted since the moment I gave birth. I'm always tired and sleepy. When time permits it on my days off from work I will sleep 9-10 hours through the night but even then I feel exhausted. Does this feeling of exhaustion ever go away and when?
My son is nine and doesn’t want to leave the house. Not only that but he doesn’t want to play with toys, hang out with friends and is a lot more withdrawn than usual. This is a very new thing going on with him but he also suffers from anxiety. I feel like he’s depressed, what do you think? Should I bring him to a doctor? Therapist?
