I do everything at home!! I’m so tired, its unfair
Just beginning to get divorced and I am SO HAPPY!
I would leave my husband if I hadn’t accumulated so much secret debt
I don’t care to be friends (small talk is annoying) with the parents of kids in my sons class
Both WFH, yet somehow I have to always bring son on MY errands, no so for hubs 😤
My house is never clean and nobody’s helping... Sometimes I dream about alone life
I’m not looking forward to a long summer at home with the kids...
Feel like I serve n take care of everything n Everyone all day. But Who takes care of me?!
About to have baby 2 and still feel worried I won’t love him as much as my first born 😫
My kids aren’t good at their extra curricular activities so I want them to quit
It’s only day 3 of summer and I already am ready for school to start again
