My Bad Mom Moment

Tonight I feel like a bad Mother 😣

I just yelled at my 3-year-old boy, Mason!? 😯 😢😭

I always try to be the calm and collected one, to be an example for our little ones – no matter the circumstances.

I took Mason upstairs, tucked him in, said our good night prayers and gave him his good night kiss.

He just wanted me to lay with him a little while longer after tucking him into bed. So I did.

Then he asked me to go sit with him because he wanted to go number 2. So I did.

After tucking him again, he started telling me what will happen tomorrow at school and having one hell-of-a-conversation. So I listened. I then asked him for (I lost count of how many times) to lay down and close his eyes and have sweet dreams and kissed him good night – again.

He then again asked for water and another 5 more minutes of Mommy laying down with him. So I gave him some water and laid down another while.

Finally I got up and told him. Mommy is going to bed now as I also have to get up early for work and he has to get up early for school and we shouldn’t be tired tomorrow. – Keep in mind, this is now 10pm already and we get up at 5h30am.

I completely lost it!!! Yelling at Mason to please go to sleep and then I started crying with him, having a Mommy meltdown because of lack of sleep and exhaustion of everyday chores.

I’M TIRED!😪😫

I woke up the night before for our 6 month old son, Jason. (He had a bad night) Mason also never took his afternoon nap. I did all the dishes, bottles, laundry, cleaned the whole house, cooked dinner, fed and bathed the kids and on top of everything I’m anemic – this causes me to always tired. (I am busy treating my anemia as my iron levels are only 6.6 currently. This is so low that I can go into cardiac arrest)

Please know, I’m not using any of the above as an excuse, I just need a break. Saying that, that broke me even more. 💔How can a mother say she needs a break from something she loves and adores so much?😢 Luckily Hubby came to our rescue 💪 He laid down with Mason till he fell asleep. It is now 11pm 🙈

I feel so bad but reality is…

We as parents need a break once in a while or we will snap and take it out on those innocent babies. We need “ME” time, we need quite time, we need to just have – even just a few hours a week – to ourselves or with our spouse.🏖

We need to unwind and relax in order to do our job as parents and be there for our little ones when they need 5 more minutes of Mommy time or just to tell you a story.

So to all parents out there.

Please, ensure you make time for yourselves in-order to be the best you can be for the little ones.

Don’t wait till you snap to realise this. I promise you, it’s a horrible feeling to feel so disappointed in yourself after the meltdown. Or see your little ones face after you have snapped.

Thank you for taking the time reading my blog.

  1. I kind of want to tell you don’t feel bad about snapping at your child. He’ll forgive you easily. Plus little ones tend to take chances 🙂 And yes we get tired as parents. Remember you give so much to your children.
