My sad confession is being everything to everyone is sometimes just too hard. I'm pretty much a single mom to 3. The father to.my oldest 2 is long gone and the dad to my 12 wk old (my bf) works full time. Also we don't live together. He comes over every night to help, but sometimes its late.so its up to me to work, do homework, Dr appts, school parties, dinner, baths, bed time, clean house, and the list goes on. My kids aren't the only ones needing me to do for them. My parents are all the time needing me to make calls or run errands. I know I know being a parent isn't easy, but sometimes I feel so overwhelmed I iterally break down and cry. Ok that's it. Start the bashing.

I understand. You get pulled in so many directions and end up doing nothing well.

I'm sorry you're doing things alone. Why are your parents needing you to do their errands? Do you have a friend or a family member who can help out till you get back on your feet?

Most of the time I feel so completely overwhelmed too!

Start taking care of yourself mama. Schedule it in.

Why would somebody bash you? You're doing your best. Just keep going. It does get easier. Hugs.

I feel you, it's tough. You're allowed to have a meltdown, its not easy with three kids and other people counting on you. Don't feel ashamed of sometimes not being able to handle it all at once, you're a human being, a mom that takes care of her children, a daughter that's caring for her parents and a woman that wakes up every day even during tough times and manages to give her best even when she's down. You are allowed to have a moment, it's not always going to be this tough,
be strong, be patient and tell Yourself that you are an amazing mother,daughter,girlfriend.

Because there seem to be so many moms here that seem to be able to do it all, and I can't.

Awww... Nobody really has all their shit together. They must act like they do. You're doing great. I know because you worry. The fact that you worry makes you a great mom.
