We all have those days. When we are tired as f*ck. Couple days ago I had a really bad day. I was so tired that I didn’t know what’s going on. I’m working on shift for 12 hours and it’s not the easiest job in this world. When I had three days in a row my son decided to wake up during a night so I was sleeping 3 hours between my day works. I was so exhausted. I even don’t know how I was able to do my job. But when I cam back home I almost fall asleep in a bath. Tiredness is a b*tch.
Tiredness can kill you
I was trying to write a nice blog post for you Mommies but I couldn’t. My eyes were closing and I didn’t think properly. I didn’t know what I’m doing. And it’s so true that ‘Tiredness can kill you’. On the next morning, I was driving to work and I almost pass my red light. I’ve stopped because my passenger shouts to me that we have a red! I was so frightened. I realized that I could be in this car with my son and then nobody would say to me to stop. I even don’t want to think what could happen.
You are important!
So no matter what try to rest. There is a couple of laundry tiles? And what? They will not kill you. You didn’t prepare a dinner? You can always call for pizza. You didn’t clean your house? It can wait till tomorrow. Yes, trust me it can wait. If you feel you are on the edge take a nap with your baby. Do not risk that something can happen.
I blame Instagram
I really don’t get those posh Mommies on social media. How they are doing it that their houses are fresh and clean every day. They have a perfect makeup, pedicure, manicure. Flawless hair and clothes (without milk splits). How?! How are they finding a time? Sometimes I don’t have two minutes to scratch my ass.
Almost everyday motherhood is testing my patience. Checking how far I can go. How strong (weak) I am. I have those days that I’m thinking ‘Oh my life was so nice before my baby’ but it wasn’t perfect. Now it is. I have what I always wanted to. My gorgeous boy is making me the most tired and the happiest person in the same time. It’s worth more than everything. And to be honest, when I ‘m very tired is affecting him in the first place. I’m more nervous and I’m easily losing my patience. That’s true our kids are victims of our tiredness.
Support is what you need
I believe I’m not the only one who has those days. It’s really important to find people who will help us and support us. I’m really happy to have my husband who is not moaning if he will no get a nice dinner on his plate. He even encourages me to rest more. If you don’t have any supporters in your family, friends please feel free to write here. Also, there are thousands of Facebook Momm’s groups where you can meet other Moms who are really supportive.
