Being a parent is not an easy job, even full-time employment does not require you to put in the amount of time, effort and patience as being a parent. Being a parent means leading, guiding, inspiring, cooking, cleaning, driving, explaining, cheering, worrying, and hoping. It also involves a lot of teaching: no playing sports in the house, use your napkin, sit up straight, don’t pull your pants down, look a person in the eye when you say hello, chew with your mouth closed, say please and thank you.
Parenthood is like being thrown into a test every day, with no briefing or preparation, it’s a perpetual challenge, never knowing what the day will bring. An unknown author published this blog on Magazin, so for the exhausted mom who hides a few minutes to cry in the bathroom, read this:
“For the mom hidden in the bathroom, because she needs a few minutes of tranquility while slipping tears from her eyes.
For the mom who is so tired that she feels she can’t continue, that she would give anything for a moment of peace.
For the mom who cries in her room for having scolded the kids for nonsense that makes her feel guilty.
For the mom who orders pizza because she didn’t have the time to make dinner again as she expected.
For the mom who feels alone, even when she’s accompanied.
You’re worth a lot.
You are important.
You are enough.
This is a stage, a crazy and challenging stage for all moms.
But in the end, everything will be worth it. For now, it’s hard. Difficult in many and different ways for each of us. We don’t talk, but we all fight, you’re not alone.
You are enough.
You give the best of you.
Those little eyes that observe you think you’re perfect, they think you’re more than perfect.
Those little hands that ask for your arms, they think you’re the strongest and you can conquer the world.
Those little mouths eating what you cook, they think you’re the best.
Those little hearts looking for yours, they want nothing but you.
Because you are enough for them, you are more than enough, mom.
You are wonderful…”
It’s exhausting both mentally, physically, and emotionally to raise a future adult. But even if you find yourself exhausted and crying, you’re still doing something right. Parenting is a hard job, but it’s also the most rewarding. You only get one chance to be the parent of your child’s childhood – so enjoy it.
