Today, after a busy afternoon taking care of the kids, I was feeling really down about only being a mom these days, and I was hoping my husband would make me feel better when he got off work. In the middle of cuddling, he called me "mom." FML

You got kids and a husband who likes to cuddle and has a job. Some people will go looking for reasons to be depressed.

Dont worry that's definitely normal

Dont worry that's definitely normal

My parents sometimes call eachother Mom and Dad. I don't know if this is normal for anyone else, but it is for me.

At least he didn't call OP "dad"

Or sister.

call him son of bitch

30 - Hey, now. Harsh much? My parents call each other "mom" and "dad" in front of me all the time. It's no biggie.

My mom would talk to me be like: dad and I are going somewhere blah blah blah and vise versa

Can anybody say "Awkward?"

OP don't be so down! There's no FML in this story if you consider that your husband is expressing love for and trust in you.

It sounds like life could be a lot worse

Sorry i didn't go off into a whole paragraph with long and unnecessary points which would say nothing more than, her life isn't that bad

3- No shit huh? Its like these dumbasses want stories of death and war and shit.

Not at all. I just think this isn't an FML I mean she's depressed so what. I've rolled my ankle for the 3rd time in a week, however I wouldn't even consider that an FML just life

When I was little, my dad called my mom, Mom. So don't feel bad.

Yea, in my family, we all call our grandma "Grandma", even her kids

At one time or another, I've call a lot of people "mom" by accident.

45- I've called one of my male teachers "mom" once. That's a bad sign.

Having kids doesn't mean your old... Have you ever watched 16 and pregnant?

She never mentioned feeling old. She is tired of just being, "mom".

Nag nag nag nag nag nag nag nag nag nag nag nag nag nag nag nag nag nag nag. Jk Fyl op. :)

Stop stop stop stop stop stop stop stop stop stop stop stop stop commenting.

I was kind of referring to op. sorry if my post annoyed you all. :( *cookie*

A hobby like painting or finding a gym that teaches dance can help you feel better. Sounds like you need "you" time.

Only being a mom? You've got a child (or children) that love you, a husband who cares, and you're feeling down about it? Some people don't have families. You're also a wife, and a friend to lots of people! (:

She's not necessarily feeling down about being a mom. It's more the fact that being a mom is ALL she is. Everyone needs a little me time. I meant have you ever spent hours taking care of kids? I'm not saying kids are bad or anything, I actually love being around them. But after hours of taking care of them, you need time to be someone other than mom or the babysitter or whatever position you're in while taking care of the kids. I babysat my 3 of my cousins all under the age of 7 for 8 hours yesterday, and by the end I was ready to go and be anywhere else but with them. I don't think she loves them any less, she just needs an opportunity to Not be mom for a few minutes.

28- so, in other words, she needs a girls night out! Or a date night with the husband. Maybe OP could get a babysitter for a night and go out to have some fun!

Welcome to the rest of your life.

Well you are a mom now. Embrace your mommyness.
