Today I am going to be real here and complain about being a mom. Because, well, motherhood is fucking hard.

Motherhood is fucking hard and sometimes we need to complain about it. And that is okay! Click to read my complaints and share yours!

I am going to start with in general my kids are pretty damn good kids. And, no, I am not just saying that. They really are good kids. But, they are kids and they do drive me absolutely crazy.

Here is the deal, just because I complain about being a mom, doesn’t mean I love it (or my kids) any less. And I truly feel its okay to complain about it, because motherhood is fucking hard.

My kids are three and five and they have an amazing relationship with each other, but there are those days. Those days where they just cant get along. One is mad because the other has something that they didn’t even know they wanted until the other had it. Moms of more than one kid, you know exactly what I mean. Those days where they cant even sit on the same couch with each other or breathe the same air. Those days are the days I feel like quitting.

My three year old has been partially potty trained for a whole year, but just now started pooping in the potty. She also just started wearing panties at night instead of diapers. I mean come on, a whole year of wearing ten pairs a panties a day, because she cant stop what she is doing to go to the bathroom.

Have you ever changed a three year olds shitty diaper? Well, incase you haven’t I will let you know it is so damn nasty. Its like changing an adult’s diaper. I mean she does pretty much eat whatever I eat. Its like me taking a shit in a diaper. Not fun. But, I couldn’t force her to shit on the toilet because it could create more fear of the potty. Like I said earlier, motherhood is fucking hard.

My five year old still wont sleep in his own bed all night. I really fucked that one up by co-sleeping for way to long and not getting him in his own bed earlier. Here’s the deal, I LOVED co-sleeping when he was a baby. He was close and it was the only way I could get any sleep. But, instead of listening to my mom, I just let it continue.

A lot of you would say “he is only young once and to enjoy him wanting to be close to you. It wont last forever.” To that I would say I agree. But trying sharing a bed with an almost six year old the height of a nine year old. He is tall and lanky and sleeps like a wild man. He takes up most of our king size bed.

But, he is also an anxious kid who hates change and hates to be alone. I am his mother and it is my job to be there for him whenever he needs me. I just wish he wouldn’t need me in the middle of the night.

Speaking of nights. I always looked forward to my kids getting out of the baby and young toddler stage, because sleep! I couldn’t wait to be able to get a normal nights sleep. Well, that surely hasn’t happened yet.

If it isn’t my anxious five year old waking me up to get in bed with me, its my three year old waking me up telling me she is wet. Or she is thirsty. Its never ending and motherhood is fucking hard.

Also, what is up with kids always waning to eat something? I know they are growing, rather quickly, and they need nutrients, but damn. I have a snack drawer in the new house, similar to my snack basket, and that helps save my sanity. But, I also have to teach these kids to know when enough is enough. Otherwise they would become obese kids or sit on there butts all day. I cant let that happen so I am constantly fighting with them to stop eating. (Structured activities helps with this!)

I don’t know about you, but in my home someone is always throwing up. And I am so damn tired of the vomit! Please make it to bathroom next time kid, because mommy is tired and motherhood is fucking hard.

Okay, I think I am done complaining for today. But, before I go I would like you to know that I do love my kids and I absolutely love being their mommy. Even though the days (and nights) are long and hard, I wouldn’t trade this job for anything in the world.

Motherhood is fucking hard and complaining about it is okay.

  1. The time I brought my 6 y.o. to the produce market on a busy day and he vomited
    all over the counter while I was paying. And my son always wants to eat just like your kids but never actually eats the food he is served and acts like it’s my fault when he’s hungry. And he is NOT NICE when he is hungry!

    1. Oh no Laura, that does not sound fun at all! Yes, my kids are NOT nice when they are hungry either!

  2. Oh man do I totally feel that! My child has been saying he is hungry and complaining so I whip up eggs with cheese and some grapes on plate but now he’s not hungry like whyyyy just eat child!! I’m sure I will have to hear him cry the whole time we are in Target that he is hungry. Fun fun fun !! Thanks for the post and yes it is hard!!

  3. Yes, yes, and more yes! Motherhood is so damn hard. Like, people told me it’d be hard when I got pregnant. But no one told me HOW HARD. It’s insanely hard being responsible foe another life. Thanks for making it okay to complain. I know so many moms are scared to complain because we don’t want to seem ungrateful or for people to think we hate our lots in life, etc. Thanks!
