I’m gonna give you a real answer, which is yes, of course!! I love being a mom, but…but!! Not always. It’s okay to sit back sometimes and be like “this fucking sucks”. Doesn’t make you a bad parent, it makes you human. No matter how old you are, whether or not you have a partner, whether you have one child or 7, whether they’re “good” children or little hellions, parents all have moments where you find yourself crying on the bathroom floor wishing nothing more than to be able to get intoxicated and go dancing, or spend money on something for yourself you don’t need, (new CLEAN dress, or dangly earrings, anyone?), go to sleep at dawn without consequence, and sleep until 4 in the afternoon. (Or just take a long shower and masturbate, ya feel me??)
motherhood kicks your ass, and makes you love it. Nothin is the same, everything is hazed by sleepiness, smothered in kisses and endless stains, and warm with unending love and snuggles.
