I am a birth mom to 3 kids, adoptive mom to 1 kid, and a stepmom to 4 step-"adults." Yes, you read that right... 8 kids. I am wife of actor Michael Beach, home cook, taxi driver, herder of children, terrible housekeeper and blogger of mom truth.
My little one recently turned one year old and is growing more independent with each passing day.
The stockings were not hung by the chimney or anywhere,And the elf on the shelf was neither here nor there.
Why on earth can’t workout pants manage to stay above my mom belly?
The truth is, I love my step-kids as much as I love the kids I gave birth to but at the end of the day, I am not their mom.
I can't unplug, switch to off or silence the constant chatter in my brain and it’s ridiculously exhausting. Is it just me???
I want a gold star for all the laundry I wash, load after load, week after week.
What I didn't realize is that motherhood was going to completely knock me on my butt and all my so called “needs” would become secondary or nonexistent.
Those images of the blissful mother easily breastfeeding a peaceful baby with an almost ethereal glow are a setup because the reality is much more complicated, painful and messy than that.
