No one said it’d be easy

You’ve no doubt heard it before. Being a mother is a full-time job.

I really got that message loud and clear when I was a staying home with my daughter. But I was only working part-time at home. Hard enough.

Now I’m working oustside of the home too. That gives me a break of sorts, in that I’m not mothering all day. But after dealing with people all day (I’m working as a customer service representative), I find it exhausting to then come home and be a full-time mother also.

Not that I wasn’t exhausted before, mind you.

I don’t know how people do it! Let’s see how long it’ll take me to acclimate to my new lifestyle.

    Taking care of a child is indeed a full-time job in itself.

  2. This reminds me of my mom and what she had to go through with my two brothers. I want to wish you the best of luck. I believe that moms are the most amazing people in the world for what they do.

  3. So much true! I want to speak here on behalf of all the mothers on earth especially my mom. We are 5 kids in the family. Four boys including me and one girl our eldest. I have witness the sacrifice of my mom during those days when we were yet students, she really worked hard so much for us, Disciplining us. Nourishing us. And everything. And I want to thank her for that. I love you mom!

    I am not a mother yet, but I know how hard it is to have a child. I can see that through my sister-in-law, she has two daughters. My mother said that to me all the time, that someday, when I have my own family and children, I will experience it too. I’m so thankful that my Mom took care of us very well. She’s a real gem! ^_^

    People should start calling motherhood a career. And mothers should be getting the credit due them

    My wife and I just had a baby girl (3 months now) and I couldn’t agree more. While I miss both my wife and my daughter while I’m at work, it certainly is a nice mental break. I never knew how much babies need their parents! I love it, but it surely is tiring. Sometimes when I get home at night, my wife is shredded and the house is a mess! Totally understandable. Sometimes, babies need you for hours and hours and hours on end! It took a three month old to show me how easy working is. Ha ha ha.
