Being a mom is one very difficult task. It is draining physically, mentally, and emotionally.
A mom spends her day helping others, feeding others, fixing others, and doing all sorts of other things for her children.
In a single day, I make 3 meals a day with multiple snacks, help clean up spills, drive kids everywhere, worry about my children’s safety, help with homework, help the little kids with laundry, chores, and all sorts of other little tasks like tying their shoes and buttoning their shirts, and the list goes on and on.
In a single day I can hear my kids cry upwards of 20 times at least! They’re crying because they hit themselves, because they can’t find their shoe, because brother didn’t share, because I didn’t make the right lunch, because they can’t open the door, or because everything is going wrong in their lives.
In a single day I can hear “Mom” about a million times. It can be for every reason imaginable from needing help to wanting to know something to just not paying attention so they just say my name anyway.
By the end of the day, I have had it and feel like I’m about to go insane. I am completely exhausted and can’t even think clearly anymore.
