Some days, being a Mom is not all giggles and playtime. Sometimes the laundry is piled high, the kitchen is dirty, the baby is screaming for no reason at all, and all you want is a shower. That’s the gritty, exhausting, unattractive, truthful reality. It’s easy to get discouraged thinking the value of your existence is in washing crusty dishes, day-in and day-out. It’s easy to get discouraged thinking this is a never-ending cycle, and wondering if there’s a light at the end of the tunnel. I’m having one of those days too… you’re not alone. Chin up, Mama.
