You are NOT alone.
You are NOT a bad mother or parent.
You are NOT a bad person.
You are human.
As mothers we are constantly doing all that we can to cater, please, and make our family happy. Whether we’re at work or we’re a Stay-At-Home Mom, our day’s work is never completed until those little ones are actually in bed. Even then so, your work still isn’t finished. There’s still dishes that need to washed, floors that need to be swept, and food that needs to be prepared for the next day. Unless you say “forget this work” and leave it for the next day then maybe, just maybe, you’ll find time for yourself. And when you do, don’t feel bad about it.
As mothers there’s only so much we can do in a day. If you’re feeling defeated, that’s alright. Take some time for yourself, and see what an hour of your day can do. Sometimes, a good nap is just what you need. Or even a glass of wine while watching TGIT!
Whatever it is, don’t feel bad about it. You DESERVE a break. Happy children need happy moms. Don’t forget that!
