Frustrated mom today.

Tuesday, September 11, 2012

Hi all. Alright, so first and foremost, I love being a mom. I have 3 daughters, ages 13, 12 and 9, and they are really good kids. I am sure you can sense that I am building up to vent a little, and if so, you are correct! Since school has started, I feel like I am more of a maid/shuttle bus/disciplinarian/project coordinator/schedule juggler than a loved mom. My girls seem to expect all of these things and don't stop to appreciate, or even consider, how hard I have to work and go out of my way to make sure things go well for them, they just expect more, more, more or reflect on how I didn't do something I was supposed to. Us moms get up at the crack of dawn, or stay up waaaay too late just so we can squeeze in a few precious moments of "me"time. Other than that, it is go, go, go all day for somebody else. I am accepting of this and actually kind of enjoy it about 98% of the time, but on days like today, when I feel a bit taken for granted, I just need to say it out loud and move on. Okay, I am done now and I appreciate that I was able to type this out so that I can let this irritation leave my brain and get to conquering the day! Thanks for listening computer and anybody that may have read this. Happy Tuesday!

    A nice, big calendar where you post EVERYTHING on your schedule might make them more aware. Are they responsible for anything around the house? If not, it might me time for a "quid pro quo"--you do something around the house, I do something you need. It will get progressively worse if there are no guidelines, and sometimes you might actually have to just say "no". Not always easy but sometimes very necessary.
