Because me staying home with my kids is a “privilege.”
Even thought I would rather be working.
Because me making dinner that no one eats is a “blessing” just to have food on the table.
Because being lonely means you “don’t appreciate what you have.”
Because never getting a bath or shower, is just “too much” alone time,
Because feeling over stretched is a god damned “requirement” as me as a mom but never you as a dad.
Because asking for help means you “haven’t tried hard enough.”
Because being exhausted from life, and needing a break makes you “needy.”
Because loving these creatures takes everything from you, yet you are never given a single moment to “recharge.”
Because I’m a mom, I will “carry on.”
