Exhaustion!!

I'm really struggling these days. I feel like I live in a constant state of frustration. My days are a steady blur of cleaning, changing diapers, cooking, cleaning...all whilst listening to a whining, complaining toddler. The terrible twos have come into our home and taken over! My daughter rarely does more than whine, complain, and say "NO!" Nothing is ever good enough for her now. I can never do anything right it feels like! I just feel aggravated and cranky most of the time. Which leads to me feeling like a bad mom, a bad wife, a bad friend. It's all a vicious cycle! I never get a chance to step out of the Mom role. I never get to be just a friend. Just a woman. I am always playing Mommy. No one knows how exhausting this is until they have done it on their own 24/7. Exhausting mentally, physically, emotionally. I know I should embrace this time in my daughter's life, before I know it she'll be starting school...but it's hard to enjoy most of the time when I feel like nothing more than a servant. Always at her beck and call. I am always trying to think of new things for us to do, but usually come up empty. When it comes down to it, it's easier to just stay home rather than deal with a rambunctious toddler out in public. Ack, I need help...
