I am such a bad mommy. Dh and I have been having marriage problems, very close to a separation (I've already packed up and said I was leaving once). My sc (8 & 6) are here this week, we get them every other week, switch on Mondays. Well I have been having a really hard time controlling my temper around them. They get a little pouty or start backtalking and I just start yelling at them. I don't know what is wrong with me but I am definitely thinking about moving out for good because its not fair for me to be taking my stresss out on them, they don't deserve it. I've always denied it but it is true I don't feel the same towards them as I do towards my son (from a previous relationship). I get more irritated with them if they act disrespectful, I have less tolerance for bad behavior. I am thinking I definitely need to leave because its just not fair for them. I thought it was just an anger problem in general, but I'm not getting angry at my 3 yo. Help? I only have four days before they leave again to their moms, but dh would never let me just up and leave while they are here anyway. He wants to shelter them as much as possible from me leaving. I don't know what I am asking, but I just felt so guilty I had to vent somewhere.
