Being a Parent is the Hardest Thing I Have Ever Done

I am having one of those days where I just feel like I am a complete failure of a parent. My patience is wearing thin and I just don’t want to be around my kids. I resort to yelling at my (almost) 2.5 year-old and feel like a total shit afterwards. I can’t take myself out of the situation because my 4-month-old is crying and screaming to be held. I wonder to myself, what the hell have I gotten into? When does it get easier? Will it get easier? I think to the future to when they become teenagers and my heart just stops. I don’t know if I can do this. If they’re not listening to me now, what makes me think they will listen to me when they’re older? I just feel lost and trapped, and all I want to do is crawl into a hole and cry my eyes out.
