What is it about mommy guilt… I went shopping today for myself (which I NEVER get to do) and spent 1/3 of my budget on my two girls.

I love my husband but sometimes I browse the singles sites to see if I could have done better.

I am so much harder on my daughter then my son and I am sooo trying to do better at this.

I don’t feel guilty about only seeing my children in the morning when I put them on the bus. My husband is home with them after school and our schedule allows me to focus on my career.

I pretend I have to go to the bathroom just so I can have some “me time”. I just sit and stare at the wall to get a breather lol.

I sometimes wish I could step into a time machine and go back to the days when I had no children.

Anonymous May 8, 2010 at 10:03 pm

Sometimes I go lay down in my bed and cry because I feel unappreciated and resentful. Then it’s over later, not too much later, and I feel like I should be more grown up and more able to handle things.

My twelve year old daughter is making the rest of us completely NUTS! She whines, is annoying, demands everything, has tantrums and builds DRAMA around everything! If she doesn’t BLEED IT OUT SOON – if you know what I mean – and start her PERIOD and level her hormones I am afraid of what I might be capable of doing! Ahhhh – her older and younger sisters agree she is just a MISERY to be around lately…….My now 15 yr old never was this bad about puberty and my youngest who is 10 1/2 – so help her God – better be taking some notes and be good to me or I will crack up and end up in the looney bin…..THIS is why I drink and when people ask me why did I have three kids – I ALWAYS say because i DIDN’T WANT FOUR! LOL…thanks for letting me get this off my chest. :-)

I feel like if I had known how hard it would be (being a mom) I would never had children. Especially 3 of them. Now I feel stuck when I really want to just run away and be all alone.

I’m having a hard time hugging and being close to my four year old son. I’m fine with his sister and the new baby, but I get creeped out when he tries to be close and i don’t know what to do.

while my husband is deployed i’ve been feeding our 3yr old frozen dinners so i don’t have to dirty the kitchen

Anonymous April 4, 2010 at 7:26 pm

I feel guilty letting my mother come over and help get stuff done around the house once or twice a week even though my husband is deployed and I am here all by myself. Shouldn’t I be able to do it all?

Anonymous March 29, 2010 at 8:19 pm

While my husband was working out of town for six months I used to set the clock ahead so the kids would go to bed without a fight. It was one of the ways I stayed sane.

Anonymous March 17, 2010 at 12:26 pm

Sometimes I wish my husbands ex would get her life together and regain partial custody of the kids. For my sake, not theirs.

Anonymous March 6, 2010 at 7:14 am

I feel guilty because I’d like to look good and buy some hip clothes.

Anonymous February 26, 2010 at 9:07 pm

I constantly complain bout never being able to eat or hav time to eat but I’m secretly loving the weightloss!

sometimes i wish my husband worked more so i wouldnt feel like i have to children to take care of

Anonymous February 18, 2010 at 7:50 pm

sometimes i pretend i don’t feel well so my husband will take more responsibilities with our baby

Anonymous February 17, 2010 at 1:59 pm

I feel guilty for working and wish I spent more time with my son.

My MIL is so immature, she is missing out on her grandkids to spite me. My hub says he’s “heartbroken” but he set this up and now he reaps what he has sown.

Anonymous February 17, 2010 at 12:01 am

I told my husband I wish his mother, ex, and kids would disappear. It’s true. But if HE was gone, lazy ex and brats would each get a cool mil. and I’d get nothing.

Anonymous February 16, 2010 at 11:59 pm

I sign my MIL’s signature to things I hate. She is a stuckup hog.

Anonymous February 16, 2010 at 11:58 pm

In a dream my husband’s ex was being chased. I was disappointed when she wasn’t tackled because I was SO looking forward to beating her. Am I evil? Ok, I’d just shoot her outright.

Anonymous February 16, 2010 at 11:57 pm

My boys are the only males I know who aren’t pigs. No, wait a minute – my therapist is a dreamy love. But all other guys suck bigtime.

Anonymous February 16, 2010 at 11:56 pm

I have never lied to my stepdaughter. If she asks if I like her granny, I will say NO. If she asks if I hate her, I will say YES. If she asks if I think she is disgusting and hollow and bitter and a horrible person, I will say ABSOLUTELY, DON’T YOU?

I’m going to kill my monster-in-law’s favorite plant on purpose, because she killed my spirit.

Anonymous February 16, 2010 at 11:53 pm

I left one narcissistic loser who verbally abused me, and married another who cannot share anything. What is wrong with me?

Anonymous February 16, 2010 at 11:52 pm

What is THIS about? My new husband got so comfy supporting his brats and crazy ex, he never wanted to combine finances with me. Now I have nothing and he resents “helping me”. Isn’t that messed up??!!!

Anonymous February 16, 2010 at 11:50 pm

It feels like such a stereotype, but I love my shrink. I mean realllly – he is beautiful and sweet, and smart, and modest, and and and yummm

Anonymous February 16, 2010 at 11:49 pm

I cannot wait to get on ebay and sell every darn thing my MIL ever gave me… she makes me livid on a daily basis. Her son is jello…

Anonymous February 16, 2010 at 11:47 pm

Does anyone know how long it takes to grow balls? My man has a little something there but I’m not waiting around too much longer…

Anonymous February 16, 2010 at 11:46 pm

My husband and his ex only got along when they were making fun of other people. Now he enjoys sharing her many daily texts, emails, and voicemails; but I don’t care anymore. I hate her and resent him and pretend she doesn’t exist.

Anonymous February 16, 2010 at 11:45 pm

I was looking forward to some amour but it took two minutes for the snoring to begin beside me… should’ve logged out quicker, I guess.

Anonymous February 16, 2010 at 11:28 am

I love my husband. But if I’d known the kind of father he would be, I wouldn’t have married him.

Anonymous February 14, 2010 at 12:15 am

i am no longer myself anymore. i am the person that my mate and everyone else wants me to be….and i hate that person. i would give anything to be myself again

Anonymous February 12, 2010 at 8:33 pm

Ever since we became pregnant I wish my husband would disappear….he smells, has no manners, is loud, and overly attracted to me…
ugg anyone want a husband?

Anonymous February 12, 2010 at 7:50 pm

I left early to pick up my parents from the airport just so I could wait in line at the car wash for a half and hour. I just wanted time to myself. It was fabulous! I listened to my ipod and sang my heart out! Anyone need to go to the airport??

Anonymous February 11, 2010 at 4:41 pm

My day is ruined when the stepchildren come over. They are so selfish and annoying. And their mom is the wickedest spoiled witch, too.

Anonymous February 11, 2010 at 4:40 pm

I finally spilled my guts about my kids to my shrink today. It felt good to be validated. Next time he wants to talk about my ex. That rotten pig.

Anonymous February 10, 2010 at 10:14 pm

I wish I could go back in time to when my kids were little. I miss them sooooooooo much.

Anonymous February 9, 2010 at 10:06 am

my husband mumbles and yells when I’m not around…I’ve recorded him and it bothers and hurts me

Anonymous February 8, 2010 at 11:36 am

I don’t enjoy cooking at all…

Anonymous February 3, 2010 at 1:51 pm

Sometimes I feel like crying because I’m struggling so much. I don’t know what to do.

Anonymous January 31, 2010 at 8:58 am

I let my 9 month old son cry in his crib (more like wine) for sometimes an hour just so I can sleep a little later.

I’ve finally had it with this farce of a marriage I am in. I am in a relationship with a man who is still married to his ex but primarily married to his mother. Both intrude on our lives on a regular basis; the ex several times per day. She obviously thinks this is ok and apparently it is. I am done with this bull.

Anonymous January 29, 2010 at 4:09 pm

My man is out having a drink with his mother. I would like to think they are having an honest conversation, but I know he can’t do it. He is so messed up and I can’t take it much longer.

Anonymous January 26, 2010 at 3:43 pm

The sound of my mother-in-law’s voice gives me a visceral response like a combination of puking, hearing screeching, getting stung by bees, kicked in the balls, hair pulled, mosquito in the ear, muzak, and a loud fart.

Anonymous January 26, 2010 at 3:41 pm

Grandma Rhino the Queen of Old Hags is here on our coast but won’t come see the kids because she is pouting because I hate her!!!!!!!!!!!!! She is the grossest, meanest excuse for a mother and grandmother. I am so happy she is avoiding us because I hate her. She has been awful to me and I am the only one who has ever been good for her son and his kids. I have put up with so much crap and she appreciated that until my husband started trouble between her and me because he is too much of a coward to confront me or her or his ex and is such a baby brat!!!!! I want to marry a MAN.

Anonymous January 26, 2010 at 3:38 pm

My husband’s ex is such a lazy ass, useless person! She won’t even get out of the car to greet her children or buckle them. My husband does it whether picking up or dropping off. She is such a loser, the cops have to be at the drop-off point. She is early, dying to dump the kids when we have them; late and grumpy and waiting for my husband to take them (and hurry!) when returning them. Why does God give children to horrible monsters when good people can’t conceive? That is MESSED UP!

Anonymous January 25, 2010 at 5:30 am

I don’t trust my husband anymore. He says he’s working on himself but continues creating problems between me and his mom and me and his ex!
