Blogger reminds mom not every minute of parenting is enjoyable, and that’s okay
Austrian mommy blogger and all around bad ass Constance Hall is back with another powerful message for stay at home moms – it’s totally fine to admit that you don’t always love staying at home.
You may know Constance Hall from her hilarious thoughts on having sex as a parent , the realities of breast feeding and why we shouldn’t judge moms at the park who are on their phone but in a recent blog post titled The Highs and Lows, Hall manages to sum up perfectly the frustrations that come with being a stay at home parent.
The reward’s worth more than millions, but you don’t get to choose when they come to you, they’re random and hit you when you least expect them, just when you are feeling so unaccomplished, so exhausted, so “what the fuck is the point in doing another load of washing when a toddler is only going to pull off his nappy and piss on another pillow” BAM a reward flies out of nowhere and Ninja kicks you in the head...[inline_ad] The good moments with your kids are hugely powerful, and can give a stay at home mom the drive she needs to make it until the next one comes along. But if you find yourself unhappy in your role at times, that doesn't make you a bad mom, or even a bad person. It just means you're a parent and you're doing the best you can.
