I'm not a mom (I am a dog mom though but that's not what we're talking about) I have, however, worked with kids for a long long time and I know that, while they're amazing, they're a handful and sometime they're straight up jerks. I mean that with all the love in my heart and any mom who's not afraid to be honest will probably agree that being a parent is a blessing like no other and also a pain in the a** at times.
I loved watching Jennifer Garner in this video, totally throwing the ugly truths of motherhood out there. The truths most moms won't talk about cause they're not pretty and "complaining" about them makes you seem like a bad mom.
PSA: You're a beast and supreme being for carrying a human in your body for 9 months and then birthing him or her. You have the right to complain when it gets hard. You have the right to feel like sometimes your kid is a jerk or a brat or just a pain. That doesn't make you a bad mother. That doesn't mean you don't love your child unconditionally nor that you're not doing your best. It just means you acknowledge that it's not all rainbows and butterflies to be a mom. Once you acknowledge that to yourself and others, also acknowledge that you're amazing for pushing through it always wanting to do your best for your children no matter how difficult it gets!
Now laugh with me as I watch this video for the umpteenth time!
