I know that I am a great mom. I love my girls more than life, and would do anything in the world for them. But sometimes, I feel like a bad mom, or maybe it's just mommy guilt. For instance:
I would rather shoot myself or throw myself off of a building than play another game of candyland, chutes and ladders, sorry, trouble, etc.
I hate bath time. It is just so mundane and monotonous.
I miss going to college, not because I miss the stimulating conversation and learning, but because it was one night per week that I got alone time (in the car), and didn't have to cook dinner and do bathtime.
I am so tired of watching Dora, Max and Ruby, iCarly, Victorious, etc.
Sometimes, especially when my girls have not been getting along all day, I count down the minutes to bedtime.
I feel extremely guilty about not being a stay at home mom for my girls, especially before they both started school.
But then, when I look at my girls, and when they are being so sweet and telling me how much they love me and how nice I am, I totally forget that I hate all of the aforementioned things, and remind myself that they are only little once, and that I will miss all of this when they are older. In fact, I already miss a lot of things about them being younger, especially the baby cuddles. Of course, I don't miss the baby cuddles enough to actually have another baby.
I'm sure that there are many other mommies who feel the same way about many of these things, and I am so NOT judging anyone else! For only those who are without guilt can cast the first stone.
