While there are many obviously amazing parts of parenthood, there are also many times when it’s really freaking hard, and Sienna Miller opened up about those parenting moments in an interview with Allure. She recalled a time when her daughter was super sick, and she came to the rescue. And things ended up getting seriously messy.
And if you’re a mom, you can’t really look the other way! You gotta get in there and, you know, deal with it somehow.
via giphy“I was like, ‘I’m coming, I’m coming!’ And I skidded on the sick and fell. Whacked my head. Then I get her out of the bunk; she’s crying, covered in sick. I take her to the bathroom, take all her clothes off, and then the dog comes up and starts eating the sick. And I get her in the bath and in my bed, and I’m just, like, literally naked, mopping, and crying at midnight. You know, and that’s parenthood.”
Yup, parenthood isn’t rosy and beautiful and full of snap-worthy Instagram moments all the time! Most moms don’t share these harder experiences because there’s so much societal pressure to be (impossibly) perfect all the time, but we’re so glad that Miller isn’t afraid to tell it like it is.
She goes on to describe the rollercoaster of emotions that come with being a mom, and yup, sounds about right.
But would she do the whole parenthood thing all over again? She admits she’d love to, so Marlowe might have a sibling at some point.
In the meantime, thanks for being unafraid to talk about skidding on vomit and feeling overwhelmed by the pressures of parenting, Sienna. It’s definitely one of the hardest jobs out there, so kudos to all parents!
