I’ve noticed lately that my patience is thin with my 5 year old. I know she is only five, but she doesn’t listen to anything I ask or say - it’s ALWAYS a fight. She even told me the other day that I’m always yelling. That is not what I want my daughter to think about me. Granted, I know she may not take it as I am taking it but you know….
I am a single mom. My youngest is just over a year and a half… I have no help other than my parents (they watch my kids while I’m at work). But other than that, it’s just me. I do all the cooking, cleaning, I work full time, I go to school and I try to incorporate self care when I can too…. Not to mention having to watch my son like a hawk all the time.
My patience is thin because I am one person doing a million things. How can I be more patient? And how can I stop feeling like a terrible mom for losing my patience and feeling like I don’t give her enough time with me alone? This mom guilt absolutley sucks.
