Nicole - Like its been said, everyone gets like that. Im not even a mom and I have moments where I just cant stand to have anyone around. It happens to the best of us. P isnt going to stop loving his momma. Just try to make the next day better. Take him to the park or go for ice cream. Do something fun together. It isn't the first time you'll get out of control and Im sure it isn't the last. But that doesn't make you a horrible mother, wife, friend or person.

Hey there! Glad to hear some honesty. Don't worry though, I felt like a screaming banchy (SP) on wed. and felt like such a miserable mom. Maybe it's the week? Sounds like a lot of moms are having a terrible week! You are lucky to have such a forgiving little boy, he truly is a sweetheart!

Hi Nicole, I found your blog off of someone else's and I just wanted to say, what everyone else has already said...we all have those days! Right now my husband is working nights when he is supposed to work days and sometimes he's working both and our son just turned 1. I've been having some moments myself trying to keep him quiet so my husband can sleep while getting very little sleep myself with hubby gone. I think it is absolutely precious that Porter waited patiently for you and greeted you with a big hug, his way of showing he loves you more than anything, even when you're having a bad day. Have fun on your trip!


Awe, no one thinks you are a bad mom. Everyone has these moments, and those who you swear up and down don't, hide it really well. I know exactly how you feel, and have done the exact thing!! Just enjoy your weekend!...and feel free to go ahead and drive up to K.C.!!! :)


OK, my eyes totally started welling up at work for you! (how embarrasing LOL) Everyone has these moments - where you are stretched too thin and everything gets crazy. Don't dwell on it, just move on and do something fun with P. It's all good - there is a reason you don't remember much from when you are little!


Every mom has those moments.Moments when so many things are going on, and so many people need our attention, that we stress out and say or do things we shouldn't. Don't beat yourself up about it! Obviously Porter forgave you, so forgive yourself! Isn't it incedible how little ones are so perceptive and fogiving though?? Like Porter wanting to give you a hug. He knew you were having a rough time. Hope things are better the rest of the day!

Hey Nicole,
I am one of Heather Morrison's friends. Let me first say that I enjoy reading your blog because of your honesty. I totally turn in to psycho mom at times, and I would like to avoid it all together...but it's not going to happen. I am going to have crazy moments where I do things that I regret...that's okay. I am working on myself, so I will have less of those moments, but in the meantime, I have to focus on what I do after those psycho moments. I am trying to suck it up and apologize to my kids when I do something inappropriate. Hopefully, they will learn from my example and take responsibility and apologize for their actions. Obviously, P learned the whole apologizing/forgiveness thing from guess it was you. Don't let the mother guilt eat you can be debitating...believe me I know!

Just stumbled upon your website, because it was a favorite of someone's blog I I don't know you, but wanted to say that we all have those days and that we all beat ourselves up about it. I'm sure your an amazing mom - everyone has those day when they're crazy busy and just need five minutes alone. We've all been there...


I agree, we all have these days. I know this is a "working vacation" lol but try and relax and enjoy yourself. Can't wait to hear about your trip!! :)
