Momma Is Exhausted
Our family of six just began day 32 of this never ending quarantine. My boys are ages 20, 18, 16, and 10. Everyone of them are a momma’s boy whether they admit it or not. The positive thing is due to school closings and jobs cancelled everyone is under one roof for this season. The problem is my wife treats everyone like royalty.
My wife basically runs a 5 bedroom hotel. She fixes homemade meals daily. Beyond that she takes special orders and actually delivers them to each selective room. Much of the time she’s also been playing school teacher to my 10 year old. Add to all of this constant cleaning, dishes and laundry.
I have been amazed at her endurance up to this point. She’s been determined to do these things and never complains. However, I can see how battle weary she has become. We may have dodged the recent tornados, but she has definitely been affected by these winds of change. She definitely has no problems going to bed.
Mommas are certainly a rare breed in society. They give and give and give. Next thing you know they have become completely give out themselves. For all you exhausted moms out there. Please know your never ending work is very appreciated .
