I feel like sometimes I feel like I left a part of me behind when I became a parent. I love my kids but sometimes I can't help but feel like everything changed when I became a mom. I was really young when I had my oldest so sometimes I feel like I didn't get to experience as much. Does anyone else feel that way sometimes? I feel like I don't get consistent me time. I love that they need me and I love them so much but does wanting to be left alone for a good week make me a bad person? I am the type that NEEDS to be left alone sometimes..what changed for you?

I was 19 when I got pregnant with our first. Now I'm almost 24 with 2 toddlers I definitely see my non-parent friends living up their twenties and I do feel like I'm missing something. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to be living a single life only having to worry about myself.

But then I talk to these friends that i have a sense of envy with, and they envy my life. They envy my beautiful marriage with our beautiful babies and I remember that living with roommates, dating through apps, stressing about a future, wondering when you'll settle down etc is so stressful. Yes their Instagram looks fun and carefree but their reality isnt so. Parenthood is also stressful and messy, so we are all equally stressed just for totally different reasons. I feel a little more lucky than my 20-something friends that I feel a sense of stability and purpose having met motherhood so young that they don't feel yet in their lives.

Cant deny that on my bad days with motherhood, I dream about a single life living in a city in a cute little studio apartment that's silent and clean always..😂

But then ...

I feel all of this! Being envious but also feel like I’m almost kinda envious of myself and momhood. ☺️

Single life in a cute clean studio (Sounds kinda nice hehe) I get it! Like a little getaway

I judge other parents for spanking their kids. I don’t think we should be able to hit children. Even our own. Children need more rights.

Holidays

I AM SO THANKFUL THE HOLIDAYS ARE OVER! Talk about stressful!

Holidays

I wish the holidays could be more about spending time with the people we love than feeling like we have to put on a show. There's always so much pressure.
