What do you find to be the hardest part of being a Mum so far? For me it's getting LO to bed each evening. He hates to go to bed and always screams and has a tantrum. We have to rock him, feed him and really work hard at the moment. It can take anything from 10 minutes to 2 hours. He has a tanturm, gets hot and then gets more upset.... I find that after a full day of playing and caring for him I'm shattered and my patience is running thin by the end of the day and I feel so frazzled. I just wish he wouldnt battle with me. I dont know how single mums cope - I am so grateful I can call DB to takeover when I feel my head might explode. If it wasnt for this end to each day I'd say that being a mum was a breeze! (well...sort of ).
