I know I'm a fab mum in so many ways. But I've fallen short lately and tonight DS mentioned my anger twice! He feels sad when I get angry. I get angry pretty easily these days and have little patience. The fact is, I've overloaded myself and am so busy. I went from sahm who worked PT to working and studying 2 courses and full-on busy. It made me feel so good after years of DS focus but now I think we're both feeling the strain if it. I think I liked the me time do much that I became more impatient with DS time if that makes sense? You know, the more freedom you get from the child(ren) the more you need or something? I just find it really annoying to have to play with DS for any period of time now whereas I used to do it all day!
Anyway, DS is a quiet child and for him to mention my regular anger/impatience with him is heartbreaking. He looked genuinely sad when he said it and I know he is justified as deep down I already know I'm too impatient lately and hard on him. Can anyone understand this? Is it something you've been through?
