I snuck away to have a mini crying session in my bedroom because it was just one of those days. Worn down, stressed, overwhelmed and so on.
A few minutes went by and I heard a tiny, sad little voice from outside of my door, “mama… miss you.”
It’s crazy how these little crazy humans can break me right down and then fill my heart right back up over and over again. This mother —- rollercoaster is exhausting and yet I wouldn’t change it.
All I have to say is that anyone who acts like they have it all together all of the time is lying to you and lying to themselves. I can admit that I’m a mess sometimes and THAT’S OKAY. If you’re exhausted at the end of the day that means you applied yourself in your kid’s lives. If you have to sneak away to cry, punch a pillow, or scream out of a car window somewhere, that’s fine too because that means you CARE about them and the decisions you’re making for them!
Yes, motherhood is beautiful. So, so, so beautiful…. but it’s also messy, sticky, stinky, uncomfortable, exhausting, and really, REALLY hard sometimes. YOU ARE DOING A GREAT JOB MOMS, DADS, GUARDIANS. Stick with it and before you know it these long days will soon feel like very short years and you will wonder how you ever got through it. But you will get through it. Cherish these ugly, beautiful moments because you WILL miss them someday ❤️
