The trials and tribulations of Motherhood. The real feelings and issues people don't discuss.

The trials and tribulations of being a Stay at Home Mom. The
TABOO of Motherhood. The real feelings and issues people don’t discuss. What
Moms want to get of their mind but don’t for fear they will be judged or criticized
for not having it “all together” as we say in Motherhood. So, some of you went
to College and decided that you wanted to be a stay at home Mom right? You
looked for a degree in Motherhood and couldn’t find one, right? Okay, so you
got your big degree and amazing job right out of college or worked up to an
awesome job. Than years passed, and some of you got married or not and then had
a few kids or so. Than after deciding what was best for you and your budget,
you decided to stay home and take care of your babies. Than your life changed.
It wasn’t about Mom anymore. It was about your kids, husband, cooking,
cleaning, bills, etc... But where did Mom go? She got lost in providing,
nurturing, and taking care of her family. After many Mothers have babies, they
sort of lose themselves. There are a whole new set of responsibilities and
activities that need to be coordinated. While you enjoy your new life and wouldn’t
have it any other way, there are always doubts and guilt associated with your
new role as a Mom. Feeling guilty is normal and it’s okay. Being a parent is
tough, but being a Stay at home mom is very challenging. It’s very hard to find
balance and make sure you have “MOM TIME”. In order to take care of your
family, you need to take care of yourself. In the next blogs, I will be
discussing the TABOO’s of Motherhood. What people don’t discuss at your Mom’s
Group, Play dates, and child activities.
