Tough job...

Sometimes, being a mom is really hard.

Especially when you are exhausted and your kid refuses to eat and instead throws everything on the floor that you just vacuumed because your cats shed all over it and your house smells because the cat box hasn't been emptied for a week and you have to make dinner but the ingredients you need aren't in your pantry and then you go to the grocery store and your kid screams the entire time and you have to wait in a really, really, really long line only to be told you can't use the coupon that brought you to that store in the first place and then you get home and there are two giant baskets full of clean laundry that have been sitting in your room for three days and you can't even remember how long the dishes have been festering in the sink and then your kid goes on a sleep strike and you have to get up early for work the next morning and you still have a few thank you cards to send out from your kid's birthday that took place almost three months ago and you turn around to find the toys you cleaned up five seconds ago are sprawled across the floor once again and your kid has an unidentified object in her mouth and when you try to take it out she bites you and scratches your eye and you get so grumpy with your husband he honestly considers calling the people with the white coats to take you away and you feel like you're failing at pretty much everything.

End scene.

Ah, I'm so sorry. Sometimes motherhood ROCKS. And somedays, it just plains SUCKS. Here's hoping your kid is so exhausted she sleeps in tomorrow, your husband is extra sweet, and all your hard work today pays off tomorrow. Tomorrow will be better! It's just gotta be, right? :)

Thank you, thank you, thank you for this post. I really needed to hear that I'm not the only one with piles of laundry and festering dishes :)
