I agree with a previous poster in that personalities probably has much to do with it. I wonder if you could be suffering depression op. Not sure but for me I work, study and don't have family help but I manage quite well, I'm not one to stress much over anything and my kids have all generally been good sleepers so I haven't suffered from sleep deprivation for long periods of time. I also have a very hand's on supportive husband which makes a world of difference I am sure. And honestly dh and my relationship hasn't suffered too much, we both make the effort.

@Moxy I totally agree! I'd even be happy for an age where they play on their own happily at least 80% of the time. So a bit younger than early teens. Just old enough that if they're arguing over something I can tell them to sort it out and I don't want to hear about it... And they do....that's a milestone I'm waiting for.

It sounds incredibly morbid but if something happens to me I know DH would be ok and the kids would be very well cared for and that really matters to me.

I'm not particularly enjoying it lately. My 7yo DD is wonderful, but 4 and 2yo DS's are more than a handful and they challenge me in ways I can't even explain. I am completely over this stage they are in and can't wait to start enjoying them again.

I do admire those that admit to not loving being a parent or certain aspects of it. It's an exhausting, thankless job and women aren't allowed to dislike any facet of it otherwise that makes us bad mothers.
