This blogger got so real about motherhood, saying, "it sucks sometimes"
There’s no doubt that parenthood is one of the most incredible experiences on the planet. However, no one will deny that it comes without trials, tribulations and some seriously tough times, and blogger mom Tova Leigh is getting real with followers about just that.
The London-based blogger and mother-of-three (to a 6-year-old and 4-year-old twins) often takes to social media to share the happenings of her darling family. But recently, she felt the need to take a moment for herself and open about how tough it can be as a mom.
“This morning as I sat down to drink my tea (after preparing breakfast for everyone), I listened to my three beautiful girls bicker over whatever it is that kids can go on and on about and I felt the tears coming,” she explained in the post.
We doubt there’s not a mom on the planet who couldn’t relate.
Leigh went on to explain that few people actually warn you about these moments in motherhood —the ones where you still love your kids dearly, but just need a second to scream your head off and let some steam loose.
“No one tells you this. No one tells you about the moments you will want to bash your face against the wall because your adorable toddler (who is also evil) refuses to go back into bed at 4 am because she wants to ‘play now,'” she wrote, confessing to leaving the breakfast table to hide out in the bathroom for a few precious minutes of peace.
“So I’m sitting on the toilet now with the door shut feeling sorry for myself, trying not to cry,” she continued.
It seems like Leigh struck a chord with followers, who immediately began chiming in with messages of support, solidarity, and tales of their own motherhood struggles.
“Just EXACTLY the way I’m feeling today!” one Instagram commenter wrote. “You’re definitely not alone on this! Sending tons of hugs to you.. we got this!!”
We applaud your honesty, girl, and we know it’s bringing comfort to so many parents out there.
