Sometimes I feel like it takes multiple villages when raising a little human. I don't know where I would be with out all of my villages. Well, I do know.. I would be under the covers crying as I pour wine down my throat and wish for everything to go away. But thank goodness for the villages, I haven't gotten to that point yet.
Mom life if HARD y'all. It is not easy especially when your toddler is OBSESSED with the word "mama".
No one else can pour milk into a bottle like "mama' does.
No one else can put PJ's on like "mama" does.
No one else can cut up dinner in small pieces like "mama" does.
No one else can hold the child while walking into a get together like "mama" does.
No one else can hold hands while walking outside like "mama" does.
The list goes on and on. It's crazy how the word we all tried so hard to be the first word they would say where we would practice for days on days on days which didn't matter because of course "dada" was said first.... that word we poured hours into repeating... would become the word you would cringe at when the toddler years came barreling through into your life. "MAMA!"
On top of raising a tiny human who I feel has become a dictator in my life at times, being a full time employee.. and then trying to keep the house to not be a shit show (even though you are failing miserably)... and cook dinner at least twice a week... and running to swim class and noticing a half hour before that you didn't shave your legs... and trying to find some time for yourself that isn't at 11:00pm when you are so exhausted you can't function... SOMEHOW this "mama" makes it into the next day.
How? I have no effin clue. I'm a zombie. Is there a name for a mom turned zombie - Mombie? Is that a thing?
Well, I'm here to let you all know you are not alone. Mom life = hot mess life. It's reality. So join me in accepting this mom life as a positive. Because if we don't stick together... then who will be in my village when I'm having a panic attack?
Honestly, wouldn't have it any other way.
