Double posting today. Sorry not sorry. β–ͺ️
For anyone who assumes that stay at home moms have it easy, this is for you. Yes, I'm very fortunate that I don't have to get up and go to an office everyday, and I truly appreciate how hard my husband works for our family. Really, I do. But this is to all the people who say things like "Nap when the baby naps" and don't understand why stay at home moms are always tired. It just took me over an hour to get Chloe down for a nap (thanks to teething and a nasty cold that's keeping her nose stuffed all day) I still have at least 4 loads of laundry to fold, dinner to make, groceries to buy, and on top of that, I have a puke-covered car seat that won't clean itself. I forgot to mention that I have an online clothing store to maintain and a charity to organize. Napping while the baby naps is simply not an option. Oh and I also have a 3 year old who refuses to potty train, but that's for a different post. And again, this isn't about not having help. My hubs does more than 90% of husbands I know. A million thanks @dannyweiss10 β–ͺ️
Being a stay at home mom can also be incredibly lonely. Some days I go hours without having an adult conversation. There are only so many times I can sing Wheels on the Bus before I go crazy. Most of my friends with kids live far away, so play dates are few and far between. This leaves a couple options: 1. Bother my husband at work with stupid calls for the sake of being able to use words with more than 2 syllables. 2. Call my mom who usually just asks how the kids are doing πŸ™ƒ Lately I've found myself actively participating in episodes of Dr. Phil just to feel like I'm having a real convo (don't judge, Dr. Phil is a super smart guy)

So to all stay at home moms, hell, ALL moms, you're doing an awesome job. Some days it feels like the universe is really testing you, other days you feel like you could handle having one more kid (before being quickly snapped back to reality by a screaming baby with a poop-filled diaper) Being pulled in 20 different directions at once is no small task, but I guess that's what makes us so amazing. Rant over. For now. 😏
