Don't Judge Me: I'm A Mother

Do you know what it’s like, to have a baby that screams and cries from 6am until 9pm? Do you know what it’s like to have a toddler that won’t eat solid meals?  A toddler that you practically have to drag everywhere you go because he is screaming in temper? Do you know what it’s like to have a 9 year old son who won’t do as he is told? Who won’t stop bullying his sister? Do you know what it’s like to have an 11 year old daughter who is obsessed with expensive fashions, technology & impressing her friends? A daughter who is bratty and spiteful to her siblings? Do you know what it’s like to have all four of those children living under the same roof? No? Well then…
Don’t judge me if my hair is a mess and my make up isn’t done – I’m not rough, I’m exhausted through stress.
Don’t judge me if my outfit doesn’t match or my coat has a stain – I’m not a tramp, I spent 55 minutes before the school run making my children look nice.
Don’t judge me if I don’t notice you in the street – I’m not being ignorant, I’m so tired that I can’t even see what’s in front of me.
Don’t judge me if you see me looking miserable – I’m not sulking, I’m busy thinking of all the jobs I still need to get done.
Don’t judge me if I don’t reply to your text – I’m not avoiding you, I’m busy trying to calm my toddlers tantrum.
Don’t judge me if my home is a mess when you come round – I’m not a slob, I’ve been cleaning and tidying and looking after 4 children for the past 8 hours, it is them who need help with chores, them who destroy my home.
Don’t judge me if I don’t talk much – I’m not shy, all I’ve heard is noise all day, I just need to be silent.
Don’t judge me if I don’t want to party hard with you – I’m not boring, I’ve had 8 hours sleep this week, I want to go to bed.
Don’t judge me if my shoes are worn – I’m not poor, I bought my children expensive clothes and school uniform.
Don’t judge me if you see me break down and cry – I’m not weak, I am a mother. Sometimes, I just need a break.
