One of those days!

img_20190108_180651_5692817609226359060781.jpgYesterday was one of those days, I have felt inadequate as a mother. I let it all out last night by myself in the room. If only my pillow could talk. Lincoln is teething, not sleeping and I had a talk with the daycare lady earlier, and I was just over it

I’m sharing this just in case there’s someone out there who feels the same way as I do,  to feel encouraged that you are not alone

Being a mom or parent is one of the hardest things I ever had to conquer.  Most rewarding though

Daycare lady and I have been batting heads on how she handles Lincoln. Who gives timeouts to a 20 month old??. She even gives time outs to 1 year olds. I find that absurd, and makes my blood boil

Last Friday, she mentioned to me that Lincoln can not sit in one place. He is always wandering around that she can not even read her book!!! Why are you occupied if your job is to watch our kids

I have been thinking of taking Lincoln out of her care for awhile now and I’m happy to say I have found a center. A little price-y but I would rather pay more to have a piece of mind

It just sucks that he has to start all over again. But it will be good in the end

Do you have those days too? And any horror stories with daycares?


  1. We have all been there! For me, it was when my son was super Colicy and screamed his head off all night for 3 months. You feel so bad for the little guy. Why can’t I help? What am I doing so wrong? As far as daycare goes, if you are going to move him (which I agree, it sounds like you should) moving him sooner rather than later is the best for him. The older he gets, the more he will remember his little friends and their routines. At this age, a couple short months makes a world of difference with their memory.


  2. It must be really hard to find the right daycare that works for all involved. I hope the new place works out for you both 🙂


  3. Definitely glad you took him out. Parenting is very stressful but you want to be able to trust the people you’re leaving him with it. Always trust your instincts


  4. I think it’s a common struggle for all moms! Every day has highs and lows. It sounds like switching daycares was the way to go. Always trust your gut with child care, even if it means paying just a little more.


  5. Yes, it sounds like this daycare woman should not be watching young children if she complains that he “moves around too much!” I think for sure that taking him out is the right choice. By the way, your son is adorable!
