Totally, my husband seems impressed that i can find time to shower and eat lunch during the day, so there's no pressure from him.  We're doing all we can!

...feeling really tired, worried, stressed out, and guilty ALL THE TIME!


Having absolutely no be alone (ever), to read/do yoga/talk on the phone/all the things I used to love doing. :(


Realizing that I am yelling at my beautiful baby, the same way that my father yelled at me & my brothers & my mother (& he still yells at my mother), which is #1 on my list of things I never, ever thought I'd do. :( x 1,000


Not living near family or close friends, so everything falls on DH & me, and we're both really...depleted.


(Thanks for this's always reassuring to hear that other parents feel the same way & I'm not the worst mother ever!)

.. today I have to add another one:


Never getting to finish anything .... My work is half-done, dishes  - half done, laundry- half-done - maybe I'll start playing a card game with DD then baby wakes up from nap or gets too fussy.




oh and nm7300 - everyone loses it now and then. Don't be too hard on yourself. Take a deeeeep breath. Love yourself.
