Midnight screams, dirty diapers, teething baby, wild toddler, barking dogs, no sleep and one defeated momma. We all have them days where you just can not see the light at the end of the tunnel. You’re numb to the noise, the mess and the not so appealing reflection in the mirror. No privacy, no personal space, no downtime. 1 pm, haven’t showered, brushed my hair or teeth but managed to get a cup of coffee down. Inside you want to scream but outside you’re tired, broken and on the verge of a breakdown. Days you feel a slave to your most beloved little ones that consume the entirety of your day. Nonstop circle of feedings, entertaining, changing diapers left and right, mommy this mommy that, spilled milk, crumbled food, laundry, laundry, laundry, oh and more laundry; need I continue. I adore my children more than anything in this world but let’s be real, they make me crazy some days and that’s okay. It’s okay to feel this way. You are normal, I am normal. The constant battle of feeling guilty about feeling this way. We’re supposed to be supermom and take on the world, right? Reality is you are a good mom, no you’re an amazing mom and are doing your best. We need to stop comparing ourselves to those around us and focus on what’s right in front of us; what works best for you. I think we all need that reassurance from time to time. The beautiful Instagram and Facebook photos are just that, a photo. A single moment captured in time. The fact of the matter is, every mom feels this way at some point. Some more than others but again there is nothing wrong with that. Everyone’s kids and families are different. They go through different trials and have different needs. At the end of the day, know that you’re not alone. There is someone out there who feels exactly the same as you in that very moment, tomorrow is a new day. A day to start new and fresh. Enjoy the good moments, cherish those giggles and cuddles that make up for all the craziness we call motherhood. Take a deep breath, you’re doing an incredible job.
