If Another Person Tells Me I Should Have a Third Child

I will scream profanities at them!!!

They need to spend one hour, just ONE HOUR with my 2.5 year old daughter and 5-month-old son, and they will never utter those words to me again.  The constant whining and crying is enough to make you want to pull your hair out.  My kids are now starting to fight over me.  I can’t hold the younger one without the older one pushing and shoving him, and I can’t hold the older one without the younger one crying and reaching for me.

I’m so fracking tired and severely lacking sleep and trying to fight this nasty cold that keeps coming back and debilitating me, while trying to take care of 2 kids and keeping up with my work.  I don’t have the energy to even take my toddler to the park so she can burn off some of her crazy energy.  Then I feel like the shittiest mom in the world because I can’t pull myself together for a mere 30 minutes to take her to the damn park.

Seriously people, don’t tell other people to have more kids when you’re not the one who has to spend every freaking minute with them, and especially since you’re not the one who will be raising them!

    Aly. I understand what you’re going through now. The first 5 years for every child will be the most challenging for you. Just wait until your children grow up, and they will be your ultimate source of joy. Day after day the sight of them growing up in front of your eyes will make you forget this frustration you just vented. Hold on and give it the patience it needs. It will definitely pay of at the end.
    P.S: No need for a 3rd child in my opinion, at least not now.
