Motherhood. It is controversial. Whether you have a 2 legged baby with multiple daily challenges or a 4 legged slobbering baby, your still a mama. My mom always said that if you nurture it and love it you can be a mother figure.
Motherhood can be tricky. Today no lie, I just bought a carpet cleaner because my two year old son decided to smear poop all into his carpet rather then taking a nap. Just 3 days ago, we had to call the fire department because we were locked in his room with my 4 month old baby girl asleep in her bassinet. I climbed out the window in my underwear and bra, had to barrow my neighbors phone to call 911 for them to come to the rescue. The fireman sure got a show that day! I flaunted it like no big deal. Side note- i just had a baby 4 months ago, not the prettiest sight to see.
I can’t make these things up, life happens as a married single mama. Our sweet loving husbands are not always there to clean up the poop or come bust down the door to our rescue. We have to figure it out out selves. Yes- I have an amazing husband, but he worlds long hard hours and onset see his kids for days because he’s working to provide for us.
Yes- I should just shut up and be grateful that i even have a husband and help but sometimes its hard. Sometimes I just want to bag my head against the wall and say why? Why do you need a 4th cookie? Why won’t you stop crying?
No lie- right now its 1:57 am and it is the time I have to myself to write. Get everything out of this insanely going going going brain and just write. As my husband sleeps to the left of me, my baby girl to the right in her bassinet, and my son in his bed, I am grateful for my family. But gosh darn it, this mama could use some tips and tricks on how to become a better married single mama.
So come learn with me, as I help you and I become better in life. Whether to your plant ficus or a baby in heaven. We all need a little boost in life sometimes. Over the years I have learned that both my children and I benefit more when i stopped trying to be perfect. I admitted I have needs, frustrations, loneliness, and reached out to God for help.
