If the tittle of the post hasn’t put you off till now please read the commentary down. Today is one of these days when I am Tired, exhausted, frustrated and depressed of being a mother. I love being a mother but come on lets face it – its not a easy job and though the smiles and the hugs and the kisses are good rewards there are days it gets pretty frustrating and lonely. Today is one of those days.
The husband has been travelling and is out, we have been night training Ojas and he has been doing great touchwood, he sleeps some 2 hours before us and when we are going to sleep we just take him once again and later he is mostly dry till the morning. once or twice he has even woken us up when he wanted to pee in the night but yesterday because I was alone it had to be otherwise right? The boy wet the bed three times 😦 As if that was not enough the boy has been behaving like a demon since morning. Shouting and screaming on everything I tell him and not doing exactly the opposite of what I want him to. I have been trying to be patient since this all after all he is a child I say and they have the days when they are allowed to be nasty….
But look what he did sometime back, inspite of my telling him not to he poked himself with this in his ears…
Its his old plastic brush which is broken, one end is pretty sharp and when he was playing with it, I told him not to, took it and threw it in the dustbin. I went to the loo and next thing I hear are screams and crying. And what I see that he has taken it out of the dustbin and poked his ear with it…the ear seemed all red though there was no blood. He cried for about 15 minutes and complained of a lot of pain and finally slept off. An emergency appointment with he doctor has been taken for 6pm and my heart is currently racing faster than a ferrari. I think I just survived a heart attack. How please dont ask me that 😦
I have said that before and I say that again motherhood is the most difficult job I have ever done in my life. Please pray that all be well
Edited to add : May be i should have done this post on his blog but I wasnt really thinking too much, may be will cross post it there.
oh my dear…hold on…soon he will grow old enough for you to share these stories abt him and laugh abt them! I know this is cold comfort when you are going through so much, but hang in there1 I hope things will settle soon! how is his ear now?
He will surely be ok… Blessings.
And hugs to you!

uh oh.. thats sad monika.. 😐 I hope he’s fine now..
I’m reminded of an incident of my brother when he was small, there was a bad smell around him, he was in pain and the doctor said he had a paper rolled up his nose.
And u take care too..
Oh dear. They call it the terrible-twos or something, when all the kid wants to do is say NO to everything and disobey. In my opinion it is terrible- any-age. Relax. This is going to make one hell of a story to tell his girl friends and wife. It is the Momma Revenge material. Store it up!
Hugs! this too shall pass…. and you will laugh about it soon. My daughter had mild asthma and used to puke every night, one hour into her sleep, from the age of 2 to 5. And if husband was out of town then guaranteed! But now the issue has cleared and i only can think of how bad she must have felt every night. i dont even remember my troubles 🙂
What did the doc say ?
Hoping he has not hurt himself too much.

I hope the visit to Dr. shows that everything is fine..
And When N comes back,make sure you take a nice break!

Oh dear! Hope it went well. What did the doc say? Hugsss!
U cnt count this post as No.27 though 😦 U r complaining against my sweetheart 😦 😦
Oh dear Mons, I hope he is fine now…read on Buzz.
I used to feel that whenever my husband travels, my younger one will get fidgety….she wont tell anything, but I can make it out….now she is a lot better….
Take care of that Little Prince…. 🙂 Hugs to you for having a strong heart. 🙂

I know this comes in late..but hugs dear! I am just going to write a post on R now!!! Hope his ear is better and nothing to worry about
Yikes!! Take care…. hope it heals soon and there is nothing really wrong….
Yes motherhood is demanding..>God bless you!
Let us know what happened …is he ok?
Oh God!!! These kids!!! So typical of them to act up when we are alone and it is simply difficult to handle situations. I love this line of yours, Mon: ‘ motherhood is the most difficult job I have ever done in my life’. SO darn true!!!!
