To The Mom Hiding In The Bathroom Right Now

To the mom hiding in her bathroom, needing peace for just one minute, as the tears roll down her cheeks…

To the mom who is so tired she feel likes she can’t function anymore and would do anything to lay down and get the rest she needs…

To the mom sitting in her car, alone, stuffing food in her face because she doesn’t want anyone else to see or know she eats that stuff…

To the mom crying on the couch after she yelled at her kids for something little and is now feeling guilty and like she is unworthy…

To the mom who is trying desperately to put those old jeans on because all she really wants is to look in the mirror and feel good about herself…

To the mom who doesn’t want to leave the house because life is just too much to handle right now…

To the mom who is calling out for pizza again because dinner just didn’t happen the way she wanted it to…

To the mom who feels alone, whether in a room by herself or standing in a crowd…

You are enough.

You are important.

You are worthy.

This is a phase of life for us. This is a really, really hard, challenging, crazy phase of life.

In the end, it will all be worth it. But for now it’s hard. And it’s hard for so many of us in many different ways. We don’t always talk about it, but it’s hard — and it’s not just you.

You are enough.

You are doing your best.

Those little eyes that look up at you — they think you are perfect. They think you are more than enough.

Those little hands that reach out to hold you — they think you are the strongest. They think you can conquer the world.

Those little mouths eating the food you gave them — they think that you are the best because their bellies are full.

Those little hearts that reach out to touch yours — they don’t want anything more. They just want you.

Because you are enough. You are more than enough, Mama.

You are amazing.

Thank you for this blog. It really helps when you have had no sleep for five nights and your baby still has a temperature. And you feel like a failure because you try to give the medicine but he keeps spitting it up and crying, and you can see he isn’t feeling well but he refuses to let you hold him or help him. And you can’t deal with the other kids needing help with homework or clothes or….something. And Dad started a new job and he is feeling the pressure, and he wants you to read the contract and fill in the forms and help him cope with the changes. And all you want to do is sit in the bathroom for two hours and remember what it felt like to be YOU.
