Biggest truth I’ve heard this week. Parenting should be categorized as a extreme sport.

Soooo....I tweeted this yesterday after a not-so-friendly lady made a comment on a lighthearted, humourous meme that alluded to the fact that we could all use some help as parents. She shamed me, and a few commenters, because “motherhood is something people used to cherish...your entire generation is pathetic.” Or something like that. It wasn’t really her words that got to me, because clearly with her level of anger and judgement, she has her own stuff happening. What got to me was the line of thinking that says “you must not be cherishing parenthood or your children if you acknowledge the challenges of parenting.”
I can confidently say that my kids are the best thing that have ever happened to me. I can also confidently say that parenting is the most challenging thing I’ve ever done. Why is it that when we admit the latter, we are shamed and judged?
This morning my son woke up at 4 a.m. He was congested, and needed comfort. When he’s upset, he’s only happy if he’s literally right next to me and touching me. I gave him my spot in bed, hugged him, and patted his sweet head of curly hair. I absolutely cherish that I am his safe space, and I know that the days of him needing me like this are limited. I wouldn’t trade it for the world. But, why do the holier-than-thou folks of the world cast judgement when I say I’m exhausted? I was up at 4 a.m....and yes, I wanted to be a parent. Yes, I will do the same thing every single day going forward out of unconditional love for my kids if that’s what they need...but why is it so terrible to speak the truth?
Judgement accomplishes nothing. In fact, judgement isolates people. You are *allowed* to admit that parenting is hard. You should be allowed to ask for help. And none of this means that you aren’t over-the-moon in love with your kids.
