As a mother do you ever have days where you ask yourself:
-Why bother cleaning the house when it only lasts a few hours.
-Why make plans when they always get changed?
-Why do laundry when they'll just be more tomorrow?
-Why make dinner when your toddler will just reject it and refuse to eat?
Why Why Why WHY??? Is it so hard being a mother? I remember when I was pregnant and thought Ill never be "THAT" mom with a load of laundry sitting on the couch for days. I'll never be the mom with the kids who have been wearing the same clothes for 2 days. I'll never be the mom who lets their kids walk around with dirty faces. BUT somehow I have become her. With three boys under the age of 4 I am constantly tired, hungry, easily agitated, needing a shower and behind on chores. It's like the first month of having a newborn but it's just lasted for years. Older moms say it'll get easier, I think to give us hope. But honestly right now I can't see past the constant struggle of balancing everything. Some days are easy, some are HARD. People ask me how I manage to do it all. I tell them I don't. I don't do it all. My husband has to help me with dishes, laundry, and cooking regularly. Thank God he doesn't mind. He is always willing to help me out, without being asked to. I look forward to the day when everyone is potty trained, can feed, bathe and dress themselves. For now I look forward to the future with a ray of hope that it'll be easier. It's got to be easier! DO YOU EVER HAVE DAYS LIKE THAT?
