Sometimes being a mom sucks.
There, I said it.
I don’t know why I put so much pressure on myself to love every minute of motherhood. But the truth is, not every moment is awesome. A lot of the time being a mother sucks.
I live in a constant state of chaos. There is usually a mess somewhere, someone is usually having a grumpy day (and they take turns and change it up), someone always wants a snack and I never get to bathe or pee alone. Dirty laundry and dirty dishes multiply like rabbits. Plus, I’m exhausted at the end of everyday and I usually feel like I’m screwing them up.
But through the chaos and through all the crappy moments, it really is the best job in the world. It’s okay to not love every moment because the moments that matter make up for all the moments that suck.
