Being A Mom Sucks....

There are days you just want to vent. You decide facebook/twitter/where ever is a great place and just let loose. "Everyone understands where I am coming from and will agree!" you think. As a mom, you just need to vent and get it out and then you're better, right? 

Wrong! There is always that one "friend" out there on your list. You know the one. They are crabby, mean, and always seem to have a comment for everything. Instead of you just venting out the frustration to feel better and know you aren't alone, there is that one "friend" that tells you how horrible you are. 

"Your kid isn't potty trained? He knows how, you just aren't doing it right" 

"Your house isn't clean? You have all this free time why aren't you cleaning it? It's not that hard!"

"Seriously, you don't make your kids do it? I don't see why not! It's not that hard to keep a house clean."

"You get time to watch tv? Why do that to yourself?? You have 3 hours without kids you should be cleaning and getting everything done while no one is home. That's a waste of time."

For these comments, I have started to not want to post at all. I have started holding it more in. I feel like a worthless mom. I feel like I am not doing ANYTHING right. When you are a stay at home mom, you don't have as many outlets to get things out. You have those wonderful little kids around that don't understand why mommy is upset. Unlike portrayed on TV shows and such, as a stay at home mom I really don't have any friends that I go out with. I have been forcing myself into more situations to get around more moms but then you see the clicks, the moms who are putting on that wonderful front of being awesome. The moms that are already friends and so they spend the whole time talking at the table so you just sit there and eat a donut and drink your coffee while feeling judged about that donut and the way your hair is and how you didn't breastfeed your babies. 

The point of this whole post. MOMS it is okay for you to vent! It's okay for you to feel like you aren't doing anything right! Don't pay attention to those haters! They are just jealous and trying to make you feel bad. They don't know your life. They don't know your situation! They don't know your kids! Be the best mom you are! Enjoy that Netflix binge. Enjoy that cup of coffee in solitude right before the pick up round up comes. As a society, people need to learn to be more kind. You don't like when people post rude on your facebook post, so don't do it right back. Remember you are the daughter of God, you are the way God intended you to be and you are doing the best you can!
