So it was a normal day, sunny, bright, just a routine day. I was eating chocolate that was kept for my son but I ate it as I was hungry and I was too tired to get up and make a sandwich for me. Suddenly it just hit me, I don’t know why or how but I started crying. With tears, so badly that I was shocked to my core. I never cry like this unless there is really a bad reason. But this happened.  

I looked back at my day if there was something that hurt me and if I don’t remember it. I recalled getting up in the morning, following the routine chores. Changing the diapers, cleaning home, making breakfast and preparing for the lunch. Putting away the dirty clothes in the laundry and folding the clean clothes. Then I remembered wiping the kitchen counters and taking out the trash.  

Then it was almost lunch time when I was sitting at my couch eating that bar of chocolate. I realized I didn’t even get time to take a sip of water. I tried to remember if I ate my dinner properly last night and I realized it was just a left over sandwich. My baby was cranky so I was with him and I don’t remember when did I sleep last night. That means I didn’t even eat my dinner and then breakfast and now eating chocolate because my sugar levels are so low.  

Maybe that’s why I was crying, that’s why I was sad. I looked at myself, and found my hairs that were not even brushed or trimmed since I gave birth to my baby few months ago. I couldn’t even remember when was the last time I went to a salon. Of course that was a moment of pain for me. I was such a high maintenance girl and I was definitely not liking those terrible changes. 

I couldn’t recognize this girl, who is now a mom of a new-born and a full-time mommy and a wife. I remember my husband and everyone around me used to call me a supermom, even now they call me a super-hero mom.  

But I don’t want to be a super mom! No, please! Don’t call me that. I am a normal mom who cries and who wants support. I am not a supermom who can do this all by herself.

I have dark circles, my eye bags are bigger than ever and my skin has gone pale. I don’t have any new clothes and I smell of kids vomit and milk. Is this me? Seriously? My hair are a mess and I don’t know what to say now. I am out of words. 

But why everyone thinks stay at home moms need to be super-heroes? Why they have to be super moms all the time?  

I hate bed-times, I hate diapers, I hate myself and my life now! My friends and relatives and colleagues are striving hard for their careers and they are so successful and what am I? Just a stay at home mom?  


I know how do you feel and how this new motherhood is making you go crazy, but trust me, you are gonna do it perfectly. Because you were given this baby and this life because you are strong and you deserve this. Being a mom is one of the biggest things in this world. Don’t underestimate your power and don’t let anybody tell you that your worth is less than theirs.  

This time will be over soon and one day you will look back and think of these days. I hope you tell a struggling mom the same thing that I am telling you now 🙂  

So my dear mommies, if you need support, ask for it. If you want a helping hand, ask for it. Don’t shy away, don’t hesitate and don’t feel bad. 

We are not super moms, we are just moms with super hero spirits. Let’s promise to quit trying to be a super hero 🙂

  7. After I initially left a comment I seem to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox
