This Mom Seems Happy Taking Her Child To School, But She’s Hiding The Truth.
Motherhood is hard. It is true when they say you will not know love like the one you have for your child. It’s the raw and animal-like need to nurture and protect that tiny baby with all our might. Despite our immense love for our children, women are only human.
You will never know what being really tired is until you spend sleepless nights taking care of your little ones and still get up in the morning to complete all the chores and work of the day. Sometimes women feel their sanity is slowly slipping away from the exhaustion of it all. It’s easy to begin to feel sorry for one’s self, complaining about the lack of privacy and "me" time.
Every once in a while we need to be reminded why we do what we do. A message that everything will be ok and just to seize the day with our children, because these days will go by faster than we realize.
It was just like everyday of the week, taking her child to school.
This morning a tired mom was walking her boy to school. He was happy, busily telling her about everything that popped into his head. Unfortunately, she was not paying attention to him. There were just so many things to do.
Regardless of how much work she did there always seemed more waiting for her.
She was already behind getting groceries, paying the bills, and the laundry. And that was just the chores for the home, there was so much more needed to be done.
She was exhausted beyond belief.
Her youngest had also been having a hard time sleeping the last couple of nights. Giving into exhaustion, she let the toddler in bed with her. She just needed a couple of hours of sleep.
Being a mom was her dream, but she never realized how hard it was.
The demands were never ending. Some days she wished to close her eyes and open them to see her kids a little older, more independent. She wished they needed her less.
Her biggest wish right now was a weekend on her own.
She wanted to go to the spa, read a book, go on a date with her husband. This mom didn't want more hours in the day, she just wanted "me" time to do the simple things she took for granted before.
