I Don’t Always Want to be a Mom

Today has been a tough day. My son is extremely sick, puking everywhere, and my daughter has an attitude. Our house is a mess, and my husband is either working or sitting on his computer. I am not sure where I signed up to be the manager of three humans, including myself, but I would like to take it back.  

Sometimes, I wish I could be like my single friends, taking long vacations and going to fancy parties. I wish I had more freedom and could explore other interests. I know other moms have these feelings as well, but I feel like mine seem to come up more often.  

I don’t know what to do in these moments other than hug my kids and wait for the moment to pass.
