Motherhood is hands down, the best hood I’ve ever lived in. I love my children, I love my husband, I LOVE my life, but today, I am losing my mind, I am so tired!
Tired of being brainwashed by a society that tells me as a mother I MUST always hold it together or I’m a bad mom, a bad wife.
Tired of feeling like I’m not allowed to have a bad day. Because some days I just want to cry and pull my fricken hair out.
Tired of feeling no one in this house is listening to me. Seriously, do they even hear me speaking? Are they deaf? Selective hearing…all of them!
Tired of being so conditioned to put everyone’s everything before I even THINK about myself. I almost never feel like I’m allowed that luxury. Which is insane by the way.
I’m tired of the never-ending pile of laundry. It is my nemesis, my arch enemy and it is just constantly multiplying. 8 people equal a shit ton of folding and putting away… I hate you laundry, you’re an evil bitch.
I’m tired of my ass never touching the couch or a chair for longer than 2 minutes before someone is asking me to get or do something. It’s like they have a LoJack on my ass that alerts them when I’m about to relax. Relaxing..that is a word totally forge in to motherhood, especially when you have 6 kids.
I’m tired of my 2-year-old crying about literally EVERYTHING! Seriously Marleigh, the cry for a fly being near you and you breaking your arm should NOT be the same. Sister has a flare for the dramatic.
Tired of repeating everything I say. Again, do these people hear me? Should I take up sign language? What will it take people?
Tired of my kids having like zero chores and absolutely sucking at the ones they do have. Wash the MFing dishes WITHOUT me having to remind you that it needs to be done. Funny how they don’t forget to eat the food off the plates but they “forget” to clean the plate!
I am SO tired of people putting grocery bags on the counter and not putting them away. Like it is solely my job or something. And they try to play like they don’t know where the stuff goes. Funny, cause they sure as shit know where to find it when they are eating me out of house and home.
Tired of the looks I get when I finally lose my shit on my kids. Who are you looking at Karen? I’ll bust your ass too. Mind your business.
I’m tired of watching Chase’s Corner or Ryan’s Toy Review … every day. It’s like crack for kids and nails on a chalkboard for me. If you must, I suggest Chases corner over that Ryan’s world crap any day of the week though. Sorry Ryan, you and your parents irritate the shit out of me.
Tired of always running and before I know it the day, the month is over. Where is the time going? And when do I get to do something I want? Never. That’s when.
My children and my husband are my whole world. I cherish every moment with them and will have absolutely no idea what to do with myself once these little shits are grown. The day I finally get the peace and quiet I’m bitching about not having I KNOW I will be sad, I know I will miss the chaos, but sometimes I am freaking TIRED!
And let me just say how ridiculous it is that I feel like I even have to explain that being tired or fed up doesn’t mean I don’t love my family or absolutely love being a mother. I do. I’d have 6 more babies if I could but I’d be broke and I’m old now.
I love being a mom, but these kids are assholes sometimes. If you are the parent reading this and gasping at the fact that I called my kids assholes, then you are part of the problem and you can piss off. You are not my people.
On the other hand, if you’re the mom reading this and laughing because sometimes your kids are dicks too…come over. I have white claws and an espresso machine ( I guess I’m a basic bitch).
Share if you are like me and you’re tired as a mother!
