Mami Madness Mondays: My Confesion Of My Struggle Of Doing It All Part1

Ive always been a person who wants to prove not only to myself but to everyone else that I can do it all. Through out my school years I was actively involved in and out of school in numerous clubs, teams, mentor ship programs and church activities. I manged everything very well I must say. So when I became a mom it was a no brainier that I would a continue my same habits.  Boy I was wrong.

I became a mom at a young age full of energy and was perusing that Super Mom role and fell flat on my face. I struggled so much and was super disappointed in my self. I eventually got the hang of it after 4 kids later. But lately Ive been feeling the same way I did 13 years ago. I think it has to do with me starting a new job…that’s another post for another day. Sometimes I feel as if I’m the only mom going thorough all this.The guilt is hitting hard and I’m back to the feeling of what the hell is wrong with me. I give myself a pep talks and say”come on Karen you can do this, put your big girl panties on”. I have cut out a lot of other stuff to be able to do it all.

In this series I want to be completely honest and real. I want to make sure moms out there know that they are not alone. The overwhelming of doing it all is haunting many of us. I am still not sure how I will handle these feelings of insecurity, but I will keep you up to date on my situation. Right now all I know is that I’m just trying not to loose my mind and just take it day by day.

Do you struggle with doing it all? Do you struggle with the mom guilt?

    I totally feel you on this. I too struggle while trying to do it all. Currently, I work from home while taking care of my 16 month old and 9 year old. I also attend online school full time. There are days where I don’t get to bed until 2am to be up at it again by 6am. My family is always telling me I need more help. But sometimes I find I’m not satisfied with the help I get. I guess I’m kind of a perfectionist. My youngest is now getting home therapy, so that has been added to never ending lost of things to do. I sometimes struggle with guilt of doing too much and not giving my children enough attention. I don’t want the time to go by and I regret not being there emotionally for them. It’s hard and as mothers I think we put a lot of pressure on ourselves.
