Last you checked, you have a partner. Someone equally to share the load; equally in authority, right?
“Seriously! Your dad is RIGHT there!!” -- Real Mom
No, really. Go. Ask. Your. Dad.
Once you give birth to that little bundle of joy you will never have another moment to yourself...
“Can I PLEASE have 5 seconds to myself??” -- Real Mom
This is why moms drink wine while sitting on the toilet...
Every mom at any time is faced with difficult choices...
"Let the family starve or go grocery shopping on a Sunday. There is something to seriously consider here…" -- Real Mom
Mom or not, I think we've all been there. How many days can you go without eating?
Moms are considered the nurturers over dads. Here's a glowing example of how that's true...
"Perfect example in the argument that moms are often the 'nurturer'...not always...but often! We have a little wooden windmill in our yard and one day the wind blew and broke one of the blades off. My husband, 'took charge' and announced that 'he would fix it.' His approach was to go out and snap off one of the other blades to 're-balance' it. I simply thought to myself... 'I hope I never break a leg!'" -- Real Mom
Who's ever thought that growing up sucks? We all have. There are many reasons why you don't want to grow up-- including this one...
"Ohhh, and my four-year-old told me today she didn’t want to get big like me and when I asked her why she said-- 'Because you have big boobies and I don’t want those.' First time anyone has ever said I have big boobies! ?" -- Real Mom
Boobies. They're complicated...
Parents should really get credit for being bilingual, because they speak
"kid-ese" or is that "cry-ese"?
"A unique piece of parenting is us trying to determine if your kid is crying because their crayon broke or if it was their leg..." -- Real Mom
Moms are timeless. Seriously. They are moms all. The. Time. 24/7.
"I'm not an early bird or a night owl. I'm some breed of permanently exhausted pigeon. #Momlife" - Real Mom
That's okay. Because you're one fine pigeon, Momma!
It's a balancing act. Not just the parenting part, but the "gettin' nekkid" part. Like, "we hope the kids don't catch us"...
"I’ve never been actually CAUGHT, but my son did wake up very concerned one morning and said 'Mommy! You were having a bad dream last night! I heard you screaming!!” OOPS!!! ?-- Real Mom
So... you think parenting's a breeze? Oh, sure it is!
"Trying to stand in a hammock, balance a book on your head, and avoid spilling your wine... that's parenting." -- Real Mom
Ah, yes. That precious moment when your child learns where babies come from. Here's one mom's story:
"My son just came up two days ago screaming 'OMG DO BABIES COME OUT OF YOUR THING!?' I said, 'What!?' He said: 'It’s on that Nun show downstairs (while trying not to heeve) and there’s like blood and stuff she’s pushing really hard and I feel like I’m going to barf!?' I said: 'You need to go ask your dad...' ??♀️??♀️ (Note: my mother-in-law was babysitting and was watching a documentary on Netflix and left it on the TV when she left ?)" -- Real Mom
