Open Letter to All Michigan Mama’s Out There Just Trying to Do Their Best
Hey, mama. Can I be frank with you?
Did You Have a Crappy Day?
I had a craptastic day the other day. And when I say crap, I mean that literally...
The dog had a dingleberry on her butt that she got all over my couch, and when I picked up my daughter from daycare, she too had pooped herself, and her brand-new outfit.
On top of that, after spending nine and a half hours at work, I was on solo parent duty for the evening because the hubby had a work event.
I tell you all of this, not to seek pity. I tell you all of this in the hopes that maybe you had a little bit of a chuckle at my expense. But also, to tell you that I see you.
Tired Moms Unite
I see you, mama. And you're working hard.
I know that you're
tired exhausted, and burnt out, and need a break.
But I just wanted to take a moment to tell you what a great job you're doing.
Even if the kids are a bit dirty and they're eating chicken nuggets and mac and cheese for the third night this week. Even if you feel like you're not doing a good job, you are. And I see you.
So mama, if you're taking the time to read this message, and you're still with me...
