Mommy Melt Down!


I' admitting to a mommy melt down!   Yup, the same week that I posted about how to avoid The Homeschool Slump.  Mommy Melt Down is a bit different then The Slump.   Mine occurred after frustration upon frustration piled up and without any slow release valve---she blew!   My frustration was due to some choices my children made, and some feelings of lack of appreciation, but if I’m going to be honest mostly the frustration could be traced to me.

I haven’t been doing the things I need to do.   I haven’t been physically taking care of myself.   I haven’t been following through with children.   I haven’t been taking care of my home.
But it’s easier to get grumpy, and have a bit of a tantrum and express that frustration with everyone else than to face the facts that I need to do more.   I have goals I don’t meet.   Things I want to do, but never get to.   I need to learn to prioritize the things that really matter to me.
In order to do that I need to spend less time on the computer, determine a motivation, and start taking time to journal and organize my thoughts.
How do you avoid The Mommy Melt-Down!?


  1. I never fully avoid it; but if I do take care of myself, sleep enough, and have a decent amount of chocolate on hand the meltdowns are fewer and farther between.

    I hope it gets better soon!

  2. I am so sorry. It is so difficult sometimes to feel like we have to do it all and be everything to everyone. I will keep you in my prayers!

    Many blessings,

  3. I've had a few melt down days lately too. Hope things get better!

    By the way... Tag You're IT!!

  4. Hope you are feeling better. I have been there this week. Hate it more than anything.
