Mommy Confessions: Why I am a terrible mom {link up}

Your Website Name
This is my first time linking up with two amazing bloggers Heather and Megan!
This weekly link up allows moms to make a confession...and I have one!!
Sometimes I can be a terrible mom...not all of the time, just occasionally.
Ok, ready?  Don't judge me!!
I am the WORST mother with sick kids!  Now, not the worst like I don't take care of them, or love them, or make them soup or ice cream; obviously I do all of that, BUT my kids just aggravate the CRAP out of me when they are sick!  I have zero patience. I know!  Terrible, right?  It's not even their fault!  It's just SO annoying when they are SO needy!  My oldest is the worst.  When she is sick, it's like a man-cold times ten.  Everything hurts and she can't so anything.  And don't even THINK about mentioning throw up.  If anyone even breathes the words near her she automatically thinks she is going to, which sends her off into a melt down.  It's crazy.  Maybe it's because I'm the opposite of needy so when everyone is around me it really gets on my nerves.  Also, with three kids close in age, when one gets sick they ALL get sick, and not usually all at once, but back-to-back-to-back.  So it's like a month or more of sickness.  All the snot, all the laying, all the tissues, sanitizer, Lysol, disinfecting wipes, Vick's, multiple medicines and the repeats of Mickey, Curious George, Thomas the Train and Spider man...it's starts to make a mama go batty after awhile.  Of course I hate to see my kids run down, tired and feeling yucky.  Especially when they are VERY sick, which thankfully is few and far between.  But I am sorry other moms on Facebook:  the last thing I want to do is lay around all day with my sick kids.  I'm really not the laying around type.  I am not "enjoying" those "special moment" with my "special guy".  Maybe when I had ONE kid, we would lay around together, but now I have THREE, which may as well be ten.
Do you think I am a terrible mom now?  I feel better getting that confession off my chest.  If you know me at all, you already know that I really don't care about your answer anyways ;)
I sure do love my peas and would throw myself in front of a bus for them...but that still doesn't mean they don't aggravate me every now and again.  That's ok, isn't it?
Thank heavens for wine!
What's your mommy confession??  Come on and share and make me feel like less of a dirt bag!
Just because now I feel guilty, I'll share a cute picture to make me feel better :)
See?  I don't look like a terrible mom!  They still love me.

Hahahahahaha I love the photo added in at the end for good measure!
I get majorly annoyed when my kid is sick because her sleep schedule goes down the toilet, which means mine does too. This Mama needs her beauty rest!
Thanks so much for your first ever link up!!! :) Welcome to the gang!

Hahaha I love this confession SO much!! I am the same way!!! I have zero patience, period. No whining, no crying, ever. I just cannot handle it. Luckily, Benjamin hasn't ever been really sick, but oh lordy - when hubs is sick? HUGE baby. And I have no patience whatsoever, which makes him even worse.

I also think it's hilarious about the "special moment" with my "special guy." HAHAHA. Love it.

Thanks for linking up with us - so excited to have you!
