Struggling Week

Honestly, I have to say being a stay at home mom is the hardest thing I have ever done. I really love being home and able to experience all the milestones. Somedays, like this week- well have been somewhat of a struggle. My brain hurts, I’m tired and feel very overwhelmed. I know many moms who seem to not have this issue and many of my friends probably don’t realize I struggle as often as I do. I have had a few friends say they wish they did crafts and such with their kids like I do. Well let’s be honest: sometimes I don’t. I don’t feel guilty either. Some days are just let’s watch tv all day and do nothing. Not even get out of our pjs. Yes, pjs are a regular attire in this household. Lately, I have been so blah with laundry well I don’t want to add the enormous pile I already have! My house is a disaster and I keep telling myself tomorrow let’s get some energy and then well it doesn’t happen. Here we are a week later, dishes aren’t fully done, laundry is pulling up, tv has been on constantly, my leggings are apart of me and naps are everyday.

The girls have been testing my patience and each other’s. It’s very hard some days they constantly fight. About who got what, she took my toy, I want to sit there. I would rather relax and just let them know they have to figure it out before I get up and start to separate them. Not sure if it’s the best idea but hopefully they learn that being nice to each other the day goes by much smoother!

Well, now I have rambled on. Let’s just say I am right there with you. You are not alone! Motherhood is hard. It is rough and sown times I think brings out the worst in some. I wouldn’t change it for the world. They make my life complete.

Though I do wish I could afford a cleaning lady! Just saying!

  1. I completely understand where you’re at. The regular day-to-day duties get me down, too. There’s always too much work to be done in too little time. Since you’re at home and can’t escape from it, it can be very discouraging. Somehow it helps to know I’m not the only one struggling with this!

    • It can be a very hard time! I always try to have joy in what I do at home because I am very lucky to be able to be home. But I am glad others are there with me and I hope that we can encourage each other! Thanks for the follow you have a fabulous blog!

    • I totally feel that some days! I love being home but oh man some days kids are like crazy wild employees you work with if you did have a day job. Being a sahm has many more perks than working like yoga pants and a couch! Haha

  2. Totally understand where you’re coming from. Sometimes the kids drive me insane and wonder if its whats best for everyone. But I know id miss being around them and have regrets if I did work. As a mother sometimes the stay at home scenario can be like being between a rock and a hard place.
