I’m A Lazy Mama
I’m A Lazy Mama.
Yes! You read it right.
I’M A LAZY MAMA.
The laundry can wait.
The dishes can wait.
The vacuuming and mopping can wait.
Picking up toys can wait.
And the cooking can wait.
Because I’m mentally, physically, and emotionally drained.
3:30am wake up calls and chasing a toddler all while caring for my home, my husband, and myself is exhausting.
Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom, a working mom, or both, there is no pause or a break in motherhood.
In fact, motherhood is 24/7. There is no calling in sick or vacation time. There is a little one who’s every need depends on us.
It’s a constant battle between feeling like “I got this” mixed in with endless mental breakdowns and not knowing what the hell I’m doing.
One day, it’s a walk in the park and, most days, it’s like Jurassic Park.
Some days I clean up nicely but most days I’m a legging wearing mama.
So next time you judge me or any of my mama friends, just remember they’re raising humans and shaping those minds for our future…..and toddlers are the cutest, yet most evil little people out there. They’re vicious but so full of love and that’s why we mamas do what we do.
Would we really have it any other way?
And for my mama friends, don’t let anyone rain on your parade. If your laundry and cleaning can wait, skip it. Have a glass of wine, cup of tea, binge eat your favorite cookies, and binge watch Netflix.
Remember that these moments are temporary. One day the messes will be gone, the laundry load will be less, and they’ll be less food to cook. We once were children and now we have children.
Time flies. Enjoy the moments.
