Being a mom is hard. It's a simple fact that is quite honestly, anything but simple. Whether it's your first kid or your fifth, moms constantly juggle an insane amount of things on their plate. Moms are superheroes! Most of us took our mom for granted when we were young. We didn't realize how hard it was to make sure we were always fed, washed, had our homework done, and made it to our extracurricular activities on time. In our eyes, we were the center of our mother's world. We didn't spare much thought about her needs and whether or not she was dressed, showered and fed.
Again, moms are superheroes.
Being a mom is rewarding, of course. There's no denying the joy of motherhood. Motherhood is beautiful and looks different for everyone. There is no "right way" to be a mother.
If you're a mom, there's a chance you've bonded with other moms about the struggles of being a mom. A Facebook post recently went viral, and no matter if you're a working mother or not, all moms can relate to it. Keep scrolling to read the post.
Motherhood isn't easy.It's stressful, exhausting and wonderful. There are challenges that arise as a mother that you can never foresee.
It sounds cheesy to say, but moms make the world go round.Being a mother is a full-time job. When you decide to have a child, you're signing up for some serious commitment.
Farewell to the days of going to a movie whenever you want...Or grabbing happy hour with your friends. Motherhood tends to trump most social outings.
But there are so many wonderful things about motherhood.Watching your baby grow into an actual human with a personality has to be one of the coolest things ever.
But, of course, there is a lot of stress to motherhood.Thinking about how any mom finds time to just sleep for more than a few hours makes my head hurt. Moms need their sleep too!
A lot of times, moms come together to commiserate about the #momstruggle.The internet has spawned a lot of weird stuff, but moms venting and sharing hilarious stories is one of the better parts of it.
Sometimes motherhood cramps your style.
