As a mother have you ever just wanted to run away?

You know those days where nothing goes right. The children are having meltdowns galore. You stub your toe on the bouncy chair. Cut your finger while cooking dinner. The husband does nothing to help because he says he's tired from being at work all day. Yeah it's been one of those days. I just want to pull my hair out and scream. Thinking of saying I'm going to to store for cigarettes, even though i don't smoke and never returning. But what will that accomplish, NOTHING. I just take a step back and take a very deep breath and count to 1o.

Being a stay at home mom is a 24/7 job, that many people don't think of as being work...BUT IT IS. I love my kids and wouldn't trade them for anything in the world. However, sometimes it gets overwhelming. The great thing is those hard days are few and far between. Most days are filled with smiles and laughter.

There are those times when all i want to do is take a day off and go out by myself..to the mall, grab some food, ANYTHING. I just wish the husband really understood how hard it can be to stay home all the time with 2 small children. He says he knows that it can be difficult, but no one really knows until they are actually doing it

I Agree! Much respect deserved! We all need a bit of time to collect our thoughts. Boys will never understand... :)
