Hello everyone! Today I’m writing to you as a mom. How many of you spend hours, days, months and years making sure that your children are getting all they can from you? It’s difficult isn’t it? Though you love your babies you wish to just be alone.
I go through this all time. I will lay down my life for my kids but being a mom is the most exhausting job out there. It’s none stop work. We mother’s are the stylist, the cook, the driver, the therapist, the bank, the buyer, the pastor, the teacher, the counselor and more and we don’t even get paid for it, and God forbid we publicly say we don’t enjoy the career of motherhood 24/7 then we are deemed “bad mommies”. Well I’m here to tell you that you are not bad mommies. You are simply human, a woman to be exact and its OK to feel this way.
Personally I can’t wait to get my alone time, being at work, or putting them to bed or taking trips without because that is the time when I can finally breath. I have two of them and between them both I’m always tired. One’s in school the other a toddler and they both require different things from me. I never can shower alone, cook in peace and even sleeping alone is impossible.
It’s OK because we mothers are resilient. For your own sanity and the sake of keeping your children happy, take those 5 minutes to breath, lock yourself in the bathroom for two minutes, go out to eat with your friends, go on that date, pamper yourself, take that trip; and then come back and be the best mom ever. Just don’t over due the “alone time” and shoot sometimes taking the kids on that family adventure is the medicine you all needed.
Motherhood is hard and everyone handles it differently, that doesn’t mean you love your children any less. share your mommy struggles down below in the comments and don’t forget to subscribe!
