Have you been there? Have you ever had days (or seasons, or even years…) when life just runs you over? And yet, you are still a mom. No matter what kind of day you have, there isn’t an option NOT to mom.
You don’t get a break. There’s no option to take the night off. The kids still need to be fed, groceries picked up, house cleaned, laundry done. You neglect any of these and you have some unhappy, naked, and hungry kids (maybe not unhappy about the naked part- I know of some who would love that!).
Hard was an understatement.
But I couldn’t not take care of my kids. In some ways, having them helped me continue on with life. But there were some specific things I did that helped me maintain my sanity even though my life had crumbled. There were moments when motherhood felt impossible. The kids were dealing with their grief and acting out and I simply did not have enough of myself to do it all.
