A Letter From One Exhausted Mom to Another.

Dear mama’s,

I wish they knew how hard we try.

Lately I’ve just been so burnt out. There really aren’t enough hours in the day.

I just can’t keep up.

For a very patient person, my patience’s has been thin lately. Juggling all our rolls is tough.

I don’t know how some make it look so easy.

Mom life

Wife life

Full time working life

Plus all the small things in between. It’s exhausting.

I yell more than usual which is no fun. But when you have a toddler in the hitting stage and a puppy in the digging stage, it happens.

I feel like I’m either asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow or laying wide awake at night feeling guilty about not playing enough or not finishing the laundry or just knowing my head wasn’t in the right place that day.

I know this is just a temporary phase but sometimes even though I have all the help in the world which I am so grateful and blessed to have, I still feel alone sometimes.

Anyone else?

It just feels like you have so much on your shoulders and even when the weight is a little bit lifted, something else comes long.

I don’t know, maybe it’s just me.

I guess I’m just trying to say is that, I see you.

I see how exhausted you are.

I see how guilty you feel when you have a bad mom day.

I see the work you put in to your family and your life.

I see how hard you try every day.

I get that sometimes that’s all you want.

To be seen.

For everyone to know how hard you try.

I see all you mama’s out there and I hope you know how great of a job you’re doing.

How all these sleepless nights and tired days and exhausted body’s are worth it.

You are doing amazing.

Us exhausted moms will stick together.

  1. I’m not a mama, so I can’t relate – but I can send you a giant virtual hug and tell you that you are doing wonderfully, even when you don’t feel like that’s the case! You’ve got this!

  2. Honestly, as an expectant mom…this is scary lol I guess as moms we need to remember we are not superheroes. We need help, we are all doing our best and there is no way to be perfect.

  5. Thank you to all those moms out there raising up the next generation of healers, scientists, writers, teachers, chefs, cooks, sales clerks, builders, counselors, leaders, lovers, fathers, and everyone who will help build our futures, but most of all to all those future mother’s themselves. Thank you.

  6. Remember Amanda that we are human…we all have bad mom days. Don’t be so hard on yourself. To all the mama’s that are struggling: Color with the kids, have a dance party or watch Toy Story with them. Take time for self care too…film your cup💜

We all do what we can. Love you girl!!
