So I know as large family moms we're not allowed to complain about anything. It was kind of an unspoken rule for a while until another blogger called it out, I can't remember who, but she hit the nail on the head. But how do we ask for help? We can't complain because "we chose this life" and "if we couldn't handle it we shouldn't have had so many kids" etc, but honestly, what if we need help? Because of this inability to complain, people around me think I have it all together and I don't.
I think that many of you mom’s, or stay at home dad’s, can relate to this. Ya most of us did choose to stay home and take care of the house and children. That however doesn’t mean that it doesn’t include stress or heartache. Just like any other job in the world there are going to be bad days. There will be good ones too, but it seems in the stay at home world you can only speak of the good ones. When you stay at home you do not get time off, or an uninterrupted lunch hour. Doesn’t mean we are not glad we get be the ones to take care of our family if we have a bad day. It means we are human and we need to open our hearts and mind up to stay at home parents just as we do to working parents that need help or to vent.
Let’s be there for each other and lift each other up daily! If you have it in you reach out to another mama that looks tired and worn out. Then hopefully it will come back around to you on a day you are just done.
