I agree parenting is shattering - I proxyparent from time to time and by the time I have done a 12 hour day, sat down for my dinner I don't have any energy to do any of the things I have planned - thank god it isn't everyday I don't know how you all do it
I've had 4 hours in 3 days. Ds is teething and I'm beside myself. I knew in theory that motherhood is exhausting, but the reality - oh my God. And the tiredness is making me so grumpy, with everyone but ds.
All single mothers of infants deserve a holiday in the Maldives. One with free childcare. How the hell do they do it?
