It's OKAY To Say It...

It's okay to admit it, sometimes it sucks! 

The best part about writing this blog is knowing that so many of you relate. There is magic in knowing that I am not going crazy and that these things are actually pretty normal.  Do you sometimes think that motherhood sucks?

Let's hear it.  Share your stories of how and when you wanted to pull your hair out and/or fake your own death and move to Vegas.  We love this stuff.

  1. Appreciating all of the blogs I have stumbled upon lately. Your title alone, made me feel NOT alone. I have 4 kids, ranging from 17 to 5. The 17 year old loves me when he needs gas money. The 15 and 13 year old love me when they need a ride to the mall. The 5 year old is still in the "you are the best mommy in the world" stage, so I'm good there. They are my life,and god I love them, But YES, IT SUCKS sometimes. And all of us moms should be able to say it.I was just in angry tears not less than 2 hours ago from the attitude my 13 year old gave me. Love your title,and your written thoughts.If we all can't laugh at it and make fun of it, and admit it, then we suck too.

  2. I seriously dread my kid being a teenager. I was a total asshole to my mother and she told me I would get it all back 100 times worse. Thanks for checking in.

  3. Yes it does! But it's wonderful too darn it.
    I wrote a post today on my blog that seemed serendipitous since I found your blog afterwards. Here you go:

  4. I found you yesterday and spent literally all day reading all your blogs, and let me tell you, the shit you say is what I've said time and again and people look at me like I'm awful. I have a 14 year old, a 12 year old and an 8 year old and sometimes I just want to run out of my house screaming, catch a bus to who the fuck cares, and start all over with a new identity. But alas, I love the little spawns of Satan, and always come back to endure whatever hell they have in store for me the next moment. Because at the end of the day, when they say I love you and kiss me goodnight, it was all worth it.

    1. Those people only say they're awful because they feel the same way but saying it out loud makes it real.

  5. I was so unhappy with my gender lately and just has a disappointment over a 'motherhood' schedule. Just for fun, i google words: 'motherhood sucks' and stumble upon your blog.
    I LOVE IT ALOT!hahaha you do write facts :)
    Thanks for being insane and share about it. I used to have a blog too, writing did make me sane a bit, but.. lame excuse: too busy to write anymore. However, i would enjoy reading yours.
    Keep it on fire! :)

  6. I have three kids, and there have been times when I thought I was not cut out for this gig at all, and wanted to either run away or die, but then something will happen that makes me realize that I must be doing something right; such as one of them apologizes to me for something they did, or they do something without being asked, and I don't feel so hopeless anymore. Kids can surprise you sometimes.

  7. I have three kids; 8 and 5 year old boys and a girl that's going to be 2 soon. Unfortunately, everything is different about them, even before they were born because none of the pregnancy symptoms were the same. So, it's not like I can say, "Gee, I was expecting that, it's not so bad this time around." I have found that the things that freaked me out when I was a first-time mom don't bother me anymore. Like if my daughter picks up a cheese puff off of the floor and eats it, I say, "It's not going to kill her." Whereas before, I would've spazzed out wondering what kind of germs my precious little baby had ingested.

    1. I am sure it would be different the 2nd and 3rd times around. But I was so near insanity for the first year of Lila's life (literally - not figuratively) that I wouldn't risk it again. If I had one of the easier babies, I probably would have had a second, but Lila traumatized me forever!

    I'm in the process of deciding if I'm crazy enough to do this again- Delilah is 21months. I certainly wouldn't be heartbroken if I found out I couldn't have another. I just worry if she's missing out without a sibling. I definitely DO NOT have the same wistful idea of pregnancy and a newborn like before her... Now I just get exhausted thinking about that tiny pooping "every two hour alarm". What the fuck?

  12. I used to love babies but since my five month old daughter was born I don't love babies anymore. Just like Selena, I am traumatized forever. Don't want another one. Lots of people say that I'm saying it now but that's not true, I REALLY DON'T WANT ANY MORE KIDS! She drives me crazy and sometimes I just want to break everything in my apartment and jump off the window. But then I look at her face and I feel really awful for having these thoughts. Why some babies are so hard? And why was I the lucky mother to have one?
