Constance Hall, a blogger from Australia, wrote a post about the irony of motherhood, perfectly summing up the realities of and the truth about being a mom.

Most people don’t understand how difficult it is to be a mother. Her post explains it in simple words.


Here’s what she wrote.

Motherhood is so confusing.

You work 24 hours a day and get asked why you don’t work….

Your toddler actually ate dog shit yesterday yet won’t even try a meal that you slaved away to make him….

Your never ever alone yet you always feel a bit lonely..

You haven’t enjoyed a meal in years but your gaining wait from eating scraps….

You’re always busy and always bored…

You feel resentful and exhausted and hard done by while head over heels in love….

You stare at your sleeping child and the most romantic man you know, the one you chose to spend your life with appears scratching his nuts while telling you ‘now is a good time for a root’

Everyone is uploading photos of themselves and their new families frolicking and holding hands in fields while you’re locking bathroom door drinking beer in the shower loathing the reflection of your dread locking pubes in the foggy mirror..

You spend your whole day wanting some space from the very people that you never want to leave…

It’s so confusing because you wouldn’t change a single thing.
