Please, pretty please with sugar on top! I know I am not alone in this feeling. Consider myself a fairly good mom. Keep clothes washed, cook dinners, feed and water 4 legged critters, clean house, pay bills, keep up with where and whom difficult child and easy child are with, make sure lunches are made, medications are taken, before bed make sure all vehicles are locked, home doors are locked, cell phones and home phone is charging... I could go on and on we all know moms jobs never get finished. I am just exhausted, then on top of all the above have to deal with difficult child and his moods. I know he is a boy and therefore does not have a cycle each month but I swear he pms's at least twice a week, sometimes daily!! I really need to talk to hubby about getting a real day off - like all day. We are limited on funds but surely we could be inventive enough to figure something out. Of course that would mean finding someone that I trust enough to leave difficult child with. Need to ask brother in law when the next weekend or at least overnight youth event at church is going to happen. Guess being a mom = never getting time off.
