Dear ALL moms: SHUTUP
There have been two different articles going around Facebook this week. One that started out by a stay at home mom that was urging all other stay at home moms to shut up and stop complaining about their jobs. Then another by a stay at home mom that said, DON’T shut up; urging stay at home moms to complain less, but also not to be afraid to be open about the daily struggle it is to be a full time mom.
As a woman that is dealing with infertility, and has yet to become a mommy, these two articles make me sick.
I would give ANYTHING to have puke on my yoga pants, or get peed and crapped on all day, or have to change 20 diapers a day for a living, or have to juggle all of these things that stay at home moms can’t make up their mind about whether they love or hate.
So please, get off Facebook, and go cuddle your child. No matter how frustrating and difficult they've been today. No matter how many times they've puked and peed on you and drawn on your walls and stained your carpet. Go cuddle them, and kiss them, and sing them to sleep. Because I promise you, there are women out there that would give anything to trade shoes with you for a day.
