My husband wants another baby and I DO NOT. We have a daughter that is almost 3 and I think that one is enough. I don’t want to be pregnant again. I’m afraid that my body will get ruined. I’m afraid that I will get stretch marks and a saggy stomach that won’t flatten out after the baby. None of those things happened to me with my first baby, but I am a few years older now, so who knows what would happen. I don’t want to have to take care of 2 kids all day. I don’t want to start all over again with sleepless nights and nursing a baby all day (and night) long. My 2 year old is a good sleeper and is finally starting to become independent. I don’t want to set myself back to “square one”. Not to mention that kids are expensive and I am a stay at home mom, so we only have one income. I’m just afraid that we won’t have another one and then I will regret it but it will be too late to do anything about it because I won’t have any children after 35 years old and that’s only 3 years away. I’ve explained all of these concerns to my husband, but he still really wants another one. I feel so selfish because I know how much he wants another baby. Either I’m going to get my way and he’s going to be unhappy, or I’m going to give in and do something I don’t want to do. There’s really no winning in this situation.

I am saving up for a night in the Sheraton by MYSELF . I plan to order in room service and watch t.v. and go to the jaccuzi and sleep in. I love my husband but latly his snoring has beendriving me CRAZY and I can’t stand my mattress. I wish I could win the lottery and buy myself a Temper- Pedic, so I wouldn’t have to keep asking for one . He’s afraid it won’t be good to have sex on because of the transfer resistance , I don’t care about having sex I care about getting some freakin sleep and not hurting in the morning when I wake up !!!!!

I try and want to be a good aunt to my only nephew, sister to my brother, but my brother has no desire to make and effort to let me. It makes me sad. I have no kids of my own.

We have those things under our bed that raise it up so you can store things under it. Sometimes I hide under our bed early in the a.m. So when the kids get up my husband has to take care of them. Then, when the coast is clear and I have had enough sleep I change into my running close and sneak out and then back in to the house like I just came home from running. My husband believes this because he knows I have a fear of anurisms so I cool down for like 10 mins. That’s why I am not red and out of breathe when I walk in the door. That felt really good to get off my chest!

I need a bigger closet to hide in. The kids found me:(

I tell my kids at night that if they don’t stay in their beds, I will turn into a witch! What?…we all know it’s pretty much true! It seriously scares the crap out of them:)

My teens bathroom has been out of t.p. For a week and I won’t even think about changing it:)

These are some of the MOST hilarious posts that I have ever heard in my life!!! I love my fellow soldiers (mom’s going into war with their children EVERYDAY of their lives)!!! Let’s gear up and get it done ladies! We are the cream of the crop right here! Doing the dirty work but still having the brains to put it all into perspective at the end of the day! Keep on keepin’ on!

Sometimes, I accidentally hand my 3 year olds sippy cup full of warm milk to my husband and say, “there ya go!”. I don’t even realize it until he calmly looks up and says, “umm, no thanks”.

To the person who posted on July 17 about how pathetic and sad all the comments on here on-BACK OFF! This is a safe forum for Moms to vent about the frustrations they feel without judgements. Knowing there are others out there that feel the same way I do makes me feel better & easier to handle things and be a better Mom. If we as women can not express our problems that Motherhood/marriage sometimes brings without honesty and WITHOUT JUDGEMENT, then we loss both our inner & outer voices. And what lesson does that teach our children.

I just turned forty, found out I am pregnant again, and realized that I only wear the same 2 pairs of pants and 3 shirts all the time. I would empty my 401k and my daughter’s college fund for just one day with Stacy and Clinton. My inner Carrie Bradshaw is screaming for attention!

Anonymous July 18, 2011 at 5:45 pm

Being a mother is so e##ing hard. I regret having kids. Wish I would have finished college first instead of hooking up with my husband.

Anonymous July 18, 2011 at 5:24 pm

I sometimes wonder what my life would be like if I didn’t have children. I miss being skinny & not having so many responsibilities. I resent them.

I love my son more than my daughter. She had colic and to this day sleeps with me. He was an awesome baby and has always slept in his own bed!

Wow – most of these are the saddest comments I have ever read! If you hate yourself- how can you teach your kids to love themselves…if you cant stand your partner yet stay with them -how do you teach your kids respect? If you are unhappy in your life – change it! Yes it’s going to be hard and feel almost impossible…yes it may turn your kids worlds upside down – but isn’t it better to teach them love and respect than self loathing and pitty. For god sake you are moms! Act like it and create the best world possible for your kids! Of course my husband drives me nuts sometimes…of course there are days I want to cry in my closet but I know he adores me and I pick myself up and brush off…tell my kids I love em and do my job – mommy. I’m just shocked at how pathetic these comments are (as I came to this site looking for humor…instead I feel pitty) wow.

I was an excellent mother but excruciatingly lonely with a selfish husband. I met someone online, divorced my husband and married this man. He seemed perfect till I moved in. His kids were brats and his ex was in our faces, his mother ruled his life and he had no control over anything except his money and, eventually, his beloved porn. I am divorced again now, from a greedy crazy pervert. I need a brand new life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hide from my kids and husband in the shower. I pretend I can’t hear anyone crying or screaming or looking for me. Even after I am clean, I just stand in the warm water enjoying the alone time and quiet. When one of my kids opens the door, I pretend to still be washing.

Regardless of what I tell my children, I firmly believe that fruit has absolutely no business in any part of a dessert offering.

sometimes i tell my husband im going to leave and not come back, and he comes back with “you think me and our 3 children wont survive without you?” wow really!?

I hid my son’s “favorite T-shirt” cause I didn’t like it. Then when he asked if I have seen it, I just shrug my shoulders and say no.

My husband does not want another baby and it makes me cry everyday.

Anonymous June 12, 2011 at 6:57 am

I often felt like a lot of the mom’s on here – from my marriage, to my kids, to my life … I had some pretty bad days. But now that my 4 kids are a little older (aged 10-15) I feel much better about everything. Everything is easier now that I’m getting more sleep and more free time/me time. There is a light at the end of that long, dark tunnel …..

Anonymous June 8, 2011 at 12:20 pm

I absolutely hate my ‘fiance’. He was the biggest mistake of my life but I absolutely love our 2 children like nothing else. We are completely incompatible and I hate the person I have become. I plan on leaving him but am terrified of the impact that decision will have on our children. I think I will be a much better person if i don’t have to have that lazy slob in my space everyday. I’m scared.

I feel the EXACT same way!!!

Sometimes I wish I was single. That way I won’t have to be bogged down with resenting the lack of help and hurt that my husband causes me.

My husband doesn’t cook, doesn’t clean, doesn’t do dishes, doesn’t take out the trash, doesn’t run errands, doesn’t take the kids anywhere, and has no social life so he relies on me to do and be everything.

“I would rather eat fast food every night. I can’t stand my own cooking, my mother never taught me how.”

…get real – if you can read, you can open a cookbook and learn how , nobody ever took the time to teach me either and not only am I a good cook, I also bake from scratch!

I used to love life and feel proud about myself…now I’m sad every day and feel like a failure…I look at my marriage and I think “Do I have to be in this relationship for my children’s sake?”. I love my sons but being a Mom is very tiring and I never feel that I did a good job, unlike when I used to work and felt accomplished and succesful. Back in those days when I was single, all I wanted was a husband and a family to make me whole. If this is what I wanted how come I’m not happy…
