WHEN PEOPLE SAY IT’S HARD BEING A MOM, THEY AREN’T BEING ENTIRELY TRUTHFUL. What they should really say is that it’s trying, demanding and lonely. The “age of the toddler” are always trying you, but it’s what they do, it’s what they are supposed to do. It is demanding not only on your time, but on your mind and body, so you feel like your going crazy repeating yourself over and over, as well as your whole anatomy is falling apart. It is lonely because I think after you have kids you realize the number of your friends dwindles down to a surprising number. Things just change, you change, your friends may change, or they may not and therein lies the problem. After I had the babies, my everything changed, including my manners, my attention span, and my tolerance for bullshit.
THE HARDEST PART I think is feeling like I am alone even though am married and I have two little ones with me at all times. I mean at all times… to get a glass of water, to go to the bathroom, I look over and my two little trolls are always there. My husband on the other hand works really hard, sacrificing his passions at the moment, and that just that fills my heart with love and sadness. I am grateful I am on this journey with him because I can’t imagine doing it without him, and even though we don’t see each other much he still makes me laugh and angry within a minute of conversation. Now thats special!
WHEN YOU BECOME A MOM you become invisible to the outside world, unless your blessed enough to have someone who calls YOU a friend and keeps YOU in the front of their mind even though you have nothing to offer at the moment. Because when your a mom everything you have to give is to your children who gave you the most important gift, your purpose. If you have a friend that is able to know their place in your new life and still want you around… well, those are the friends you know you will keep in the front of YOUR mind when you are able to offer more. Thank you God for this eye opener.
