A mother in Nashville, TN, wrote about how exhausting it can be trying to follow all the rules and be the perfect mother.

A lot of parents on social media are relating to her post which has nearly 50,000 shares.

This is what Christy Quinn Marshall wrote.

"I'm angry. I feel like things never stop piling up. The laundry. The housework. The forms, homework and fundraisers. The bellies that need fed. My ever growing team needs (and deserves!) a solid and powerful leader.

Pressure! Everywhere!

The dog needs walked. The van needs cleaned. The friendships need watered. My inbox blows up. Texts that don't get a text back. The rules on life can be so burdensome.

Don't give them red dye or too much screen time. Keep them away from this app and that site. Make sure they never forget their folder or lunchbox. Get them to this place on time. Remember what color jersey for the game.

Oh and tend to your marriage because that ish will completely fall apart the moment you do not.

Oh, and make sure you're getting time for self care and rest in there or you'll fall apart!

Don't feed them fast food. Don't scream at them because that will become their inner voice.

Oh, and make sure you are sleeping eight hours.

Then the early years. Don't get an epidural. Cloth diapers + homemade baby food + don't bottle feed because ‘breast is best' + don't ever let them cry it out or they will feel emotionally abandoned as adults.

Yes, all of this angers me today.

Because everyone I talk to is barely making it and so incredibly stressed out.

Literally. every.single.person. And they feel like they are alone.

Alone. Is. A. Lie.


I suck at laundry and you will not get much from us on fundraisers because I just. don't. have. time (and I forget!). All three of my kids cried-it-out because my sleep was essential for them to have a stable + happy mama.

My kids sometimes forget their stuff and I bring it to them if I'm able to (and they 'say' you shouldn't so a lesson can be learned!). I think that's ridiculous. I believe in grace. I choose different areas to teach my children responsibility like daily chores + saving half their money + so much more.

My kids never once wore cloth diapers + I tried to make baby food and realized quickly that I'm not that mom. We did (and still do) really cool crafts and messy activities (that's more my speed!).

And marriage. Ha! That's been a constant ebb and flow of good, bad, greater than ever, worse-as it gets and steady willingness to choose each other over all the noise. We always course correct + come out better.

And while I believe in healthy sleep habits I am over the idea that if you don't get eight hours then your health is in jeopardy.

Damn you, rules.

Some of us have anxiety that plagues us in the middle of the night. Insomnia steals our rest. The last thing that person needs is to feel ‘unhealthy' in that moment.

And to the moms of babies...let's get real. What is sleep?

And kudos to the one mom on the whole planet that never screams. I'd love to meet you! You're probably bionic!

Everyone!!!

Just stop.

And pull into McDonalds and take the night off from cooking.

Get yourself some fries."

Ah....the pressures of being 'perfect'.

If only people would realise that 'perfect' is the best that you are whilst admitting you are flawed.

Also...stay off social media. where everyone pretends they're perfect

Cool

My heart bleeds for her...

Not..

Silly cow chose her path in life;  and now when reality hits home, it's whinge, whinge, whinge.

Self entitled urban princess should remember that there's a lot of people out there a lot worse off then her..

She's so perfect that she drives normal women insane with guilt.

Being a parent is rewarding but it's one of the hardest jobs in the world. I'm relieved those days are a distant memory in my life.



And if you are trying to be a good mum while simultaneously trying to be a good wife, …. plus a good employee at your workplace - oh dear - very often something has to give. Angry Mom's Post About Following The Rules Of Life Is Going Viral 2396444674


Bad Mom was a very entertaining flick. Even tho it was sometimes hammy and clichéd it was well worth the trip to the cinema. Laughing

It was very entertaining, gelico. Smile A bit of slapstick with a serious message underlying it. That's the genre I like most. Can't be doing with vampires  or zombies or overly complicated plots.
