Motherhood Woes

I know it been a few months since I have written a blog post, I've had a bit of writers block. I'm bored with what I was doing and nothing exciting has been happening. I don't want to just sit and complain about how crappy I feel with fibromyalgia and these crazy sever migraines, who wants to read about that?!?!

But that's all that has been happening. I know they say to be a good blog writer you have to make exciting things happen and I use to be a very funky fun person, but you know, then I started to blog!

Once there was I time when blogging took over my world, it became a passion that overstep all
boundaries. Then one day it just stopped. I didn't feel like trying to keep up. I realized this is a race you don't win or lose, you're just in. I was neglecting what really matter most in my life. Or maybe it was that blogging was such a great escape from reality that I become enthralled in it. I needed a place to go, but at the expense of my everything.

Things got a little rocky there for a minute.... A really long minute. I was just stabilizing into a new marriage with two kids and than added another. Then it hit me like a wrecking ball, things aren't so stable. I wasn't stable. My emotions had been fried from the wild ride I had been on. When I thought I was finally thinking straight, I had let the most important things slip thought the cracks. My husband, children and me. Who am I?

Where did that upbeat, fun loving girl go that I used to be. Now I look in the mirror and I see the
mean old Red Queen screaming at everyone " Always MY way!" Is motherhood just setting in? Did having 3 kids just sap me of every fun cell within my being? Is this it?

No it can't be! I have to be in there somewhere. I can be me and be a mom too... right? I tell myself if I just get out of these sweatpants and dress like a real person, I might have more exciting adventures. But then I remember none of my jeans fit me because I'm still not pre-baby body. To much work. When did going to the gym and getting outside to enjoy a little fresh air become such a chore? Am I just having a mid life motherhood crisis!?!

Don't get me wrong I love my kids. I love when they smile and laugh and play and sing, but lets be honest there is alot of crap that sucks about being a parent. I guess I am just coming to grips with that. When I had just one it was SO easy, now I see why they say you're not really a parent until you have at least 2! With 3 though my brain is mush, my pants are sweats and my house is a constant circus of complete chaos. I use to be up my son's butt about homework and manners, now I'm lucky if I can get him and the Dormouse to school on time! Homework, what homework?!

Am I the only mom that feels like motherhood swallowed them alive? Tell me it gets better...

Thanks for sharing another adventure with me!
Stay safe, stay sane and stay absolutely splendid!

  1. An usefull post,thx to admin for the article

    1. Well thank you for an unhelpful comment. Way to help me learn how to be a better writer. Your positive critiquing really help me see where I could improve. Don't like it, doesn't apply to you... Do me a favor. Don't read it. Move on. Thanks!

  2. I definitely feel like being a mom has become my whole being. I freaked a bit at first. I'm okay with it now. I figure in 18 to 20 years, I'll live for me again. Right now I'll live for us. Beautiful piece. I hope your Fibro and migraines give you a longgggggggggg break.

    1. Thank you for your thoughtful words. Good to know I'm not the only one that had a mild panic attack when motherhood really set in.
