What is your least favorite part of being a mom?

I know, we are supposed to think the sun rises and sets on our children and act like perfect Stepford moms. I guess the reality doesn't connect with the ideals because some parts of being a parent suck.

For example, cleaning other peoples dishes, constantly, is no fun.

What is your least favorite thing about parenting?

        I agree with discipline, I hate having to discipline the kids and hate it when they are in trouble. I've never liked being the one to have to do that.

          Not ever being able to sleep in. That would be the biggest one. And never being able to eat my food without sharing. I hate that! Lol

            Yep, lack of sleep, too. I am constantly cleaning everyone's messes up, even my hubby's. No one knows how to, apparently. Lol It's so so difficult.

            Wow sorry Debi only just saw this. He's doing really good apart from still not sleeping through the night yet. He is also refusing to try feeding himself. I will give him all sorts of things to try picking up and eating and he just looks at it and tosses it aside or drops it on the floor. One time I put a heap of different things on a plate and sat it next to him while he was playing. He swept all the snacks off and started chewing on the plate. It was hilarious. But I'm sure he will get there when he's ready. At least he will eat when I feed him by spoon.

              The sassing of my eleven year old. She pushes buttons and constantly tests her limits to where I am emotionally drained.

                Actually, my least favorite thing about parenting has nothing to do with the kids!! I just want my husband to JUST ONCE wake up with the kids in the morning and let me sleep in!!!
