Trust me; I went thru this stage when I had my first daughter. I was all about her until; I took a real look at stranger in mirror staring at me. She no longer had her own illusions; she had neglected her physical appearance and most importantly did not like what she saw.
That’s when I decided that not only was I aiming to be a good mom but, it was also my personal goal to not lose myself in process.
Now, I have given up work outside but, have remained independent by working at home, follow my dreams, allow space to grow and take care of myself (physically, emotionally).
The result of it: I am happier which automatically helps me be more patient, appreciative, and loving not to mention a better role model. But, always keep in mind there is no perfect mom. Just like any other role in life you will learn along way.
If you believe that you do not handle your frustrations effectively then it would be good to take anger or stress management classes or if you would like to enhance your parenting skill go to Center for Improving Child Caring http://www.ciccparenting.org/cicc_fpcs_13.asp they offer free classes in most states, free childcare is available while you are in class. “It will not be fair to mistreat your children so, seek out help if necessary.”
Just some advise from another mom,
