I made some accomplishments today. For a mom of three, the reality is time for yourself is limited if any at all.
The last few days have been tough. My younger son is sick. It started with a fever and progressed into loose bowels. So, I’ve spent all day cleaning up poop off of carpets, mopping floors, and washing soiled clothes.
Back to my accomplishments for today:
I brushed my teeth.
I shaved that horrendous upper lip hair.
And that’s it.
And as I was writing this, I had to stop to clean up another mess from my sick 😷 son.
This is how it’s been all day. I was a single mom of one for a very long time. Wishing a two year span, we had 3 new additions to our family, including my husband.
Taking care of one sick child is a hard enough job. That alone will wear you out. Now, with our household being increased to a total of 5, I still have to care for a sick child while making sure everyone else is fed, trying to do regular cleaning, and somehow find time to write and run my freelance business.
When I was not cleaning 🧹 I was cooking 🧑🍳 🥘 then doing laundry.🧺
This is just a regular day in the life of caring for three children. The added sickness makes it that much harder. Who can prepare you for something like this?
Being a mom and a wife is the most challenging thing I’ve ever encountered in my life. Just wanted to give a minuscule glimpse into my life.
I feel like I’m failing because I get so frustrated
