** WARNING VENT! **
Morning all! - I need to get this out before i explode!
I wish you would understand being a SAHM is not as easy as it sounds!
I wish you would have a bit of sympathy every now and again instead of saying that you would love to stay home and have an easy day like i do.. PFFT!
Do you REALLY understand how frustrating it sometimes can be getting an almost 3 month old to sleep when he is overtired, sick and grumpy?
You DONT understand being a MUM means:
-Sometimes we dont get to have breakfast at the normal time like you and everyone else, i usually end up having breakfast at 11am because i am too BUSY looking after our son!
-Most of the time we dont get to go to the loo for 5 minutes because we have a crying or whinging baby that needs us, I'm sorry you get 15 minutes in the loo playing games on your phone in the morning, Im flat out getting 2 minutes to sit down and try go to the loo to get rid of this CONSTIPATION! ( sorry tmi! LOL)
-We dont get to have 10 minute long showers to just relax after our day BECAUSE WE ARE GOING NON STOP! ( just so you know DP i dont even get 3 minutes! Washing my hair is unheard of at the moment!!!! )
-We sometimes dont get the time to put our make up on in peace so we look presentable for the day!
-Lunch is almost everytime pushed back to 2pm when the baby has a sleep!
-We dont get to take our time doing things like you!!
-We dont get to have a nice drive to and from work listening to fizzty on the radio who will ALWAYS make you cry of laughter.
-Sometimes it means taking 45 minutes rocking a baby to sleep in the pram over a bump WHEN you have a sore back!
There are so many more i could write, but i am too tired! LOL
ARGHHHH, i wish my DP would understand its not always easy! Or just men in general! And yes i do love being a mum, butsometimes i just wish i could have 5 minutes to myself!
Dont get me wrong DP is a great dad, and he does his part. But he gets an hour lunch time break everyday, 15 mins in the morn to chill on the loo, then 15 mins at work whenever he wants, Gets time to himself on his drive to and from work, comes home has a nice long shower, gets to sleep more than i do most of the time... I just wish he would understand that being a mum is a 24/7 job, we dont get very many breaks, and if we do its not always hours long!
Sorry for the vent, i just needed to get it out!!!!
Ps feel free to add on if there is something i have missed regarding what being a mum means....
Have a lovely day ladies!! X
