Feeling like a bad mom GavinsMomJohnnysWife 2 kids; Texas 2789 posts

Last night DS came to my room climbed in bed and said I won't touch you momma I won't touch you. That made me feel like shit to know my son thought if he said that he'd get to stay in my bed. Usually when he sleeps in my bed he's taking up 90% of my pillow and virtually on top of me. I don't know why but it just made me feel bad to hear him say that. I walked him back to his room and laid him down. He ran back to my room 5 minutes later, his words were still stinging so I let him sleep with me. I just can't get over it even today, like my son thinks I'm mean or don't want him to touch me. I love his hugs, kisses, and cuddles. :(

I've felt like that before about something my son has said to me! I can't remember exactly, but I remember having that feeling last week or the week before. It makes you really start to think harder about how much they really understand at whatever age. My LO is just over 3.5 and I'm having a hard time thinking of him as more of a kid than a toddler.

:( sometimes we say things that stick to them and hurt their feelings. We all do it and as parents just have to e more cautious about it. Hugs! You aren't a bad momma.

Don't feel bad, really. My daughter is like that too, which is why she does NOT sleep in bed with us. She's ALL over me!



Kids learn to be manipulative little SOB's pretty early, lol. Seriously, they know how to pull strings and they figure it out fast. If my daughter wants something of mine she'll pull out things like "Mama, be nice and share please," or "Thank you Mama for making that, I really do like it, I really do!" Or they great standby "Mama, I love you and you're the BEST Mama ever!" When she figures out how to make me feel bad I am sure she'll use that next.



It's just what kids do. I wouldn't worry about it.

Thanks ya'll. My husband said that he just knew what to say that would make me feel bad/ let him sleep with me.

I agree with your husband honestly. My daughter will also pull the "I don't feel good card," or "I just want cuddles."

omg.... My LO has really started on the "I don't feel good" "My tummy hurts", he says this now whenever I ask him to pick up or if I give him something he doesn't want to eat. And if he barely touches his foto or leg to something while cleaning he'll fall down and cry about how much it hurts....I can't help but laugh cause it's so adorable, but I make him finish anyway, or lay down on his bed if he keeps insisting he doesn't feel well.

Yep. Kids are nuts, haha. My daughter will push our her stomach and tell me "Look Mama, it's getting bigger," in the saddest voice you've ever heard, lol. Or, if you bump her, she'll yell "You broke my arm!"
