This Might Sound Crazy But…

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.

I’m drained!!

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
