Topic: Am turning into the worst mother
I am feeling really guilty about my parenting of my son lately. Yesterday morning I was in one of my moods that I just wanted to get my son to school, so I could get over to my parents to see how my dads night went. So it was still 45 minutes before he was to be at school, and we were going over his questions for his Social Studies test. He was answering all the questions in a "singsong" voice and then I had to snap, and tell him I wasnt in the mood and to talk normal. Without missing a beat, my 10 yearold said, "when are you ever in the mood for anything?" Normally, I would have said, "hey, lose the attitude", but the truth is, he is right, I am always agitaed, down, quiet. His Birthday is Sunday. I dont have him for his Birthday b/c it is his my Exes year to have him, but usually I plan something for the next day with my family, and I atleast think of something to get him, and I havent' done anything. He only turns 10 once, and I know that, but I just cant put one foot infront of the other anymore. I am messing up at work completely, and since I own my own company, I guess that is o.k. but I am doing a lot of damage to the business by never getting anything done. I am not going to get any great mother awards these days.
