This is What She Needs to Hear Most on the Worst Days

What we do not tell mothers is that it is okay to say the ugly, selfish things; it is okay to have the angry, fed up feels; no one will judge them while they let these emotions wash over them and, more importantly, that we will hold them, love them, and support them while they do. We’ve all hated our two-year-old while they’re in their seventeenth straight hour of behaving like a tyrannical dictator who is refusing to sleep, to eat anything other than goldfish snacks, or to wear pants. We all feel this way from time to time, or perhaps even a lot of the time. Why don’t we confess this to one another? Why don’t we reassure one another that these thoughts and feelings don’t make us bad mothers, and that it is okay?

Mom: one who sacrifices her body, sleep, social life, spending money, eating hot meals, peeing alone, patience, energy, and sanity for LOVE.
