Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday are my absolute worst days.
Mondays I am fine I’m recharged from the weekend and having Daniel home to help.
Fridays I know the weekend is back again. .
The midweek days I feel parenting life and life in general is an up hill struggle.
I feel low at times, withdrawn, exhausted and defeated, snappy and to be honest just miserable.
I don’t like this feeling. I don’t want to waste days with my children feeling this way…. I feel guilty.
I don’t want them to think of me as a miserable old cow who can’t be bothered.
I feel guilty that I can’t give them all the same amount of Mum time.
I feel frustrated that I can’t get the thing’s I need to done.
I can’t even go to the shop for a pint of milk without it being an ordeal. It’s just really tough.
I’ve been so busy with Hugo and Finley I didn’t realise Adam has been struggling with his times tables that made me feel like a total crap parent!
Have I got my myself into a negative frame of mind with these particular days is it normal to feel this way this often? Who knows … I don’t know but I’m trying to work on it.
Tomorrow is a new day.
