...I watch Oprah! I feel like it is sometimes against the rules to admit that you watch TV while being a SAHM (stay at home mom). But I do, not all the time, but some times while I fold laundry or get ready. Yesterday, while folding laundry, I was watching Oprah. (Day time TV sucks by the way) The ENITRE show was on the topic of Mothers. I was impressed and finally realized that I am not the only one that feels like pulling her hair out from time to time. These authors were there(I am buying their books), as well as an audience full of Mothers! Genius I tell ya!
I am sure that you all are thinking... "You have one kid, what's the big deal!" I am not one to sit around and eat cake pops all day. I have to be busy! I have slowly learned over the last 18 months that, it's ok not to be doing something all the time! It has taken me this long to come to terms with that. I have my sister to vent to, but she gets tired of hearing it all the time. My husband thinks I am crazy a majority of the time! It felt so good to know that I am not the only mother out there that has some of these feelings, and to hear other mothers being brutally honest! I am far from perfect, but I try hard. I always have Sweet Pea's best interest at heart. I don't sit and play with her all day, there are times when I tell her to go play with her toys. But I try, and that is all I can do. There are days where I don't take a shower till 3 or 4 PM. I hate doing laundry every Monday. I wish someone would have told me that I would never get to see my husband! Why didn't any tell me that kids poop and poop a lot?
I wouldn't trade being a mom for any other job! I love the good days because they make to bad days do-able! Being able to be a mom is a great blessing!
So here is your chance... To vent!
What do you wish someone would have told you before becoming a mother?
What is one thing that you just can't stand?
It's ok! Just be honest... it feels good I promise!
P.S. Mom sorry for making you crazy!
