To the mom who’s tired, I see you. To the mom trying her best, I see you too. To the mom who lost her cool today, I see you.

I am you.

We’re tired. We’re overstimulated. And we’re exhausted.

We wake up in the morning and before we can even wipe the night’s sleep from our eyes someone needs us.

The needing never stops.

We get the children ready for daycare and make sure they’re presentable. Lord forbid the children aren’t dressed properly because then everyone will think we’re slacking. We pack their lunches and get them breakfast. All while we spend 15 minutes getting ourselves ready and fly out the doorclothes wrinkled, no makeup, hair a mess, and starving.

We get to work and someone there needs us too. Then the day ends, and it’s time to pick up the kids. Even though the morning was hard, we still missed them. Now it’s time to cook supper, tidy up the house, bathe the kids, and put them to bed.

As working parents, we spend maybe four hours a weekday with our kids. And the day is gone. Soon it will be years gone; we can’t get that time back.

Most days we feel rushed. Most days we feel stressed.

That’s when the mom guilt creeps in.

Will they remember how stressed mommy was today? Will they remember mommy yelling?

They won’t. They’ll remember how you combed their hair, helped them get dressed, feed them, bathed them, and showed them love in a different way.

God chose you to be their mama because you can handle it. Even on what feels like your worst day, they still love you.

I'm a wife and mother raising two daughters, ages four and two while adjusting to life after losing my mother and grandpa within a short time. I never would have dreamed my life would be how it is now . . . I am continuously grieving the death of my mother with two small children at home, while trying to remain strong for my family. I'm just trying to be a great mother while being motherless.

When a Mom is Late To Work

When a Mom is Late To Work www.herviewfromhome.com

When a mom is late to work it’s not because she slept in, because she’s a bad worker, or because she doesn’t care about her job. When a mom is late to work, it doesn’t mean she is not passionate, or that she won’t be one of your best employees. When a mom is late to work it’s because her work day started long ago. It started in the wee hours of the morning when she was up with a crying baby. It started at 7 a.m. when her toddler woke up yelling for her from the crib. When a...

I’m a Mom Who’s Running On Empty

Tired woman with hand on forehead in parked car

I pressed the ignition in my car at 6:45 a.m. to take my daughter to middle school orchestra rehearsal. I felt my hands clench tightly around the steering wheel, admonishing myself for not remembering to get gas on the way home late last night, the stress creeping into my already tight shoulders. There was no time to fill up before getting her to school. Of course, we were already running late. I said a little prayer that I had enough fuel to travel to her school and then to the nearest gas station a few miles away. The orange warning...

I Love Being a Working Mom But It’s Still Hard To Leave Them

To the working mama who cries in her car after drop-off, I was you just today. And boy did it sting.  As a working mom, some days, drop-off is brutal. Some days I just want to march back into daycare and grab my little one, then head home to watch movies on the couch and eat fruit snacks. Some days I sit in my car for a few minutes to cry my eyeballs out before I start the morning transition from mom to corporate employee. Some days I call the school three times to make sure my little one is...
