Every Piece of You

There is without a doubt that motherhood takes a tole on everything that is you!
From your health, to your physical standing, to your emotional state, to your eating habits, to your washroom routine, to your sleeping routine, to everything else in between.

I don’t know how many times I’ve had carpal tunnel from the repetitive work of motherhood.

I don’t know how many times, I’ve missed meals from making sure my kids are fed, and whatever I have decided to eat instead..made it into their tummies and I’m not even mad about it. Sometimes, I sneak it into the bathroom by the kitchen because I don’t have a walk-in pantry that I can lock and my bathroom in my room, doesn’t lock..just so i can take a quick min to eat something. When i say quick, i mean quick before they noticed you’re gone. 

I don’t know how many times I’ve gotten sick from the germs they bring home, only to not get any rest time because, that’s not what motherhood is about (Am I right, or am I right moms)!

I don’t know how many times, I’ve had to sort of “forget” my emotions, or at least I think I’m forgetting it, only to seep in on times I’d rather not have it. AND I LOSE IT, every single time! 

I don’t ever take my washroom breaks seriously, because I always have a full audience, mischievously going through my monthly stacked of pads, make-up, and other things I store in a washroom/bathroom.

Don’t even get me started on sleeping. What is that? Who does this? 

Amidst all this that seem so hard to sacrifice on days when I literally wish I can just be alone for the rest of my life, my precious children who drive me nuts on the daily, are everything I can ever ask for in life. The blessing, to be their mother, their friend, their provider, their protector, the teacher of love, understanding, care, and everything we moms are responsible for on the daily, is everything I could ever want out of my life.

I am always grateful, and thankful for being able to be a mom and have the opportunity to have my own little mini-me’s to live life and to be my legacies, if nothing more.

    I can’t love this enough. We are terrible at putting ourselves first, and we love with all our heart. Such a wonderful post- we’ve shared it!

      Thank you so much! I think putting ourselves last is part of the description of motherhood. Lol

    Last night I called my sister-in-law while locked in my car sitting at Panda, I had just left my house screeming because my toddler wouldn’t participate in dance class, just crying, feeling like I had failed as a mommy, why me, why is everyone staring at me as I forcefully remove her from dance and get her in the car AND then there is your post and I am reminded that I am not alone! Thank You!

      Oh mama! We can never control everything that happens when it comes to the little monsters we made. Sometimes you just gotta step out..breathe…and keep going. You do not ever fail at being a mommy..unless you know you were purposely being terrible at it. But this job..motherhood..yeah you can’t fail especially if its led with love! Sending you lots of good vibes on days when you just cant even mommy anymore. ❤

    It’s so easy to spend all day caring for others while completely ignoring your own needs. I forget to eat and drink many days.
