Feeling like a bad mom somtimes....

I do everything with not much help from others (no family offers help and their dads arent around) and i often wonder how well im doing with everything. I guess maybe I just do so much without any free time or breaks and its wearing me down. I love my children with all my heart and I do my best to take care of them and make sure they are safe and healthy and happy on top of taking care of everything else. Just wondering if any other moms have gone through this.

    To be a good mom you need to take care of yourself too and you need to be happy. It is ok to take a break and do something for yourself. Don't feel bad about needing some time to yourself, it is perfectly normal. I hope you are able to schedule some time for yourself soon!

    I cant really make time for myself because i dont really have anyone to babysit or anything. That's mainly the draining part more than anything probably

    I am sorry. Is there anything you can do for yourself when they are napping?

    No my 3 yr old stopped taking naps so even if 2 out of the 3 are asleep i still dont get any free time lol .The only free time I have is at night after they are asleep and usually im too tired to stay up and enjoy it or if I do i end up staying up too late and am tired the next day.feels like a never ending cycle

        I'm the same way! My husband gets frustrated easily so I am just use to doing everything on my own. It later makes me feel like a bad mom too. I just want it to be done the right way and its so much easier doing it yourself i feel. I do it with not only my kids but pretty much everything around the house. I just get mad when I have to ask so if someone offered Id probably take their help.
