6. Accused of being overprotective

When our kids are just learning to walk, we may need to follow them everywhere to make sure they don’t bump or fall into something.  We need to keep an eye on them in the playground so they don’t get bruised or bitten by an insect or put anything in their mouths. Teenage kids? We get restless but try so hard to be cool with them being on a sleepover or just out with friends but we actually end up checking on them every now and then.  We worry too much about our kids. Of course, they have been inside us for nine months and as much as possible, we do not want anything bad to ever happen to them.

  1. I love this post!! I can relate to every single one of these!! Not having enough time to get yourself ready is definitely #1. Next is finishing leftovers… I just want to go on strike from cooking. They don’t eat it and I end up eating ALL of it!! Not fair!!

  2. I can relate to number 3 even without being a mother. The neighbors’ kid is crying all the time. And, even worse than the kid’s crying, is the mother being scary loud trying to act cute to make him stop. If I were the kid I’d keep crying too after listening to the crazy sounds she makes :))

  3. I am not a mom yet and I think I never will be but I have taken great care of my nieces and nephew since day 1. All their parents are quite busy and I am the cool Aunt that comes around and goes around but when I am around I am the amazing Auntie Nanny! LOL.

  4. Great to read your post. My only child(son, Brandon) is now 18yrs. old.
    Truly blessed that I was chosen as his Mother! I can absolutely relate to
    each of your examples. Thinking back to the 1st time I left my infant son with his Dad;
    just to go to the grocery store…was only in the store a few minutes and heard
    a baby crying on the next aisle. Broke out sweating/hair stood up on the back
    of my neck and heart rate increased. I was having an anxiety attack, and it
    wasn’t even my Brandon. Even though this happened 18years ago, still remember it like it was yesterday. Moms (that means: expecting Moms too)
    hold on to them while they will let you! Although Brandon tells me everyday
    that he loves me. I miss how he would snuggle with me on the couch in his
    footy pajamas watching movies. Best and most Anxiety filled Job, being a
    Mom.
    S. Peace, N.C.
