Go Ahead and Cry, Mom.


Yes,  a few things on your “to do list” might have been forgotten today,

maybe some things were not completed quite as perfectly as you had hoped,

and they were definitely not within the specific time frame you had been leaning towards,

a few things might have gone awry during the process and I know it drags you down even if you understand that you are the only one who knows about it.

Go ahead and cry, mom.


Is time moving too quickly for you too?

are your babies suddenly independent little people with unique and wonderful personalities?

are they running and playing and learning so quickly you almost dont recognize them

they are saying new things, doing new things that amaze you each day and make you realize that they are one day closer to truly being all grown up…

Go ahead and cry, mom.


Are you struggling to find patience in a midst the chaos?

between the endless screaming and uncontrollable fighting and tantrums galore,

the crocodile tears that could fill an empty swimming pool and screeching cries that could shatter glass

you know pray it’s only temporary,  it overwhelms you and there are not enough deep breaths in a day that could blow off the steam you’re holding onto.

Go ahead and cry, mom.



It happens to the best and the worst of us.

you are not the only one to feel this way

you are not loved any less by those little ones who adore you

you are not needed any less by those babies who rely on you

you are not worth any less to the loved ones around you

One day you will look back and realize you did good

So for today… for right now,

Go ahead and cry, mom.

Go ahead and cry.

    That captures how I feel most days. I know I need to focus on what I did good not what I didn’t do.

      It’s hard for sure, especially when you feel overwhelmed and like you are doing it all wrong 🙂 keep pushing on and take some moments to yourself and you might find the peace needed to regroup your thoughts and stay focused
