I want to have a hobby but I haven't done anything for my myself in a long time, I dont know what I'm interested in.

    They are the apples to my eye. But it feels like the moment my first was born a part of myself was lost. When I catch up with a lifelong friend I have nothing to talk about literally. She is planning holidays and having fun adventures. Whereas the most exciting thing that happened to me this week is DS1 eczema has cleared up.

    Gosh I sound horrible.

    I have the same problem with any of my friends that don't have kids, telling me of their troubles and exciting adventures. All I have to talk about is poo, sleep deprivation, tantrums and how much I love the Aldi coffee machine my DH brought me when bub was born! My best life long friend doesn't have kids yet but has been TTC for awhile. I listen to her tell me all about how she will have a baby and go back to work part time and work from home and do this and do that...I don't have the heart to tell her how different her reality will be when baby comes along.

    My DD1 LOVES daycare. She asks to go on the days she doesn't and often I have to drag her out of there because she is too busy. Then I feel sad because she prefers to be there rather than with me because I am so grumpy and tired

    I feel terrible tonight. We keep our dog food outside in a big tin and yesterday I must have left the lid off. DH comes home tonight and went to feed the dog and found our cat in there. Quite stiff and rather dead.
    Questioned DS1 who happily told me that he put the cat in there and put the lid on. Can't believe I did something that meant my child killed an animal. Complete accident and he wouldn't have understood but I feel terrible for the poor cat.

    Well now I feel like cr@p because my first instinct after reading that - bizarrely - was to laugh! Maybe from surprise? dont know but feel bad.

    I'm so sorry, that must be awful.

    Yep - I'm on mat leave and DS1 still goes 2 days. Completely guilt free, especially since he enjoys it.

    Don't feel bad for laughing. It is a bizarre thing to happen. The worst bit is that the cat belongs to the people that used to live up the road. He moved in when they moved out so I had to call them and let them know.

    Worlds worst mummy day over here.

    Our lovely postie often hand delivers our mail to the door, so DS1 can go toot the horn on his bike. We were upstairs today when he arrived, I had a sick DS2 in my arms, so asked DS1 to follow me 'quick quick' down the stairs.

    I get to the front door and all I hear is 'thump thump thump' - he'd slipped and rolled down the stairs I got to him before he hit the floorboards at the bottom thank god, but I feel so incredibly guilty. It could have happened any day, but the fact the very first time was after me telling him to hurry up makes me feel terrible. He's been going up and down on his own for a year with no accidents, so I didn't even think about it.

    He's ok, he cried more out of shock I think and only had a very small red mark on his nose, but still....bad mummy.
