I am burned out on being a mom.
I am burned out.
Tired of being a mom 24/7 with no help from my partner.
Tired of having to do everything while holding a baby or hearing one scream.
Tired of not sleeping.
Tired of being the only one to feed, bathe, diaper, and clothes you. The only one that clips your nails and gives you vitamins and medicine.
I am tired of being expected to keep a spotless home, cook, and care for a baby.
I am tired of being the only one to tend to the baby when we leave the house.
I am tired of being expected to “be in the mood” after being run ragged all day.
I haven’t done anything by myself or for myself in 5 months.
Sure, my partner works hard. He does. But he gets to work hard without a tiny human attached to him.
I am exhausted. I can’t take it.
