For me, your post is a cry for help.
I don't think you are medically depressed, and I don't think you are a monster mom because your feelings.
It is obvious that you shall never leave your child or harm him in anyway. This is why you should do everything to make the situation better, and these thoughts will vanish on their own.
They are in my opinion, an expression of your inconscious crying for help, & asking for something to change.
First of all, if you are posting this, it is because you feel bad having these thoughts, thus deep inside you do not want to leave them.
However these thoughts come to you as a defense mechanism because something is not right:
Is it that your husband is not involved enough in caring for the child, leaving it all to you? Is it that the child is indeed overly infernal because of lack of discipline? Is it that you focus too much on work & exhaust yourself too much & have nothing left to give your family when you get home? etc.
Whatever the source of your problem, you need to identify it & your husband should not brush your feelings off like it has no importance, on the contrary, he should listen & help you feel better.
Take some time as a family doing positive things & fun activities, and do some soul searching.
Opening your thoughts to others might be the 1st step to recover & finding help.
Good luck to you & your family.
