It’s Just Not Fair πŸ˜³

Firstly, I’d like to say that this post has nothing to do with autism.  It does however discuss how unfair being a mom is at times.  My daughter is now in 4th grade.  This school year she has been challenged in Math.  The subject that was relatively easy for her, has now become stressful! Since about the 3rd week of school she has been really working hard on her math homework.  Every Monday through Thursday we are at the kitchen table for at least 30 min working on math (for the most part). This past week I was busy doing something with MJ so my husband stepped in to help our daughter with her homework.  I was grateful and relieved.   The next morning we awoke to this beautiful letter written to my husband.  My daughter had written him the greatest letter thanking him for helping her with homework! Is she kidding me?! Where the heck is my thank you letter for the 40+ nights I was helping her with homework!  He helps her 1 night and gets a, “Thank you dad…you’re the greatest dad” letter?! It’s just NOT fair.  Husband was all smiles and laughed hysterically when he saw my facial expression.  All he could say was, “Sorry babe. I know how hard you work.” Needless to say I had to listen to calming, soothing music on the way to work to calm myself down…It’s just not fair…Thanks to all for allowing me to vent!

  2. Our humbling is sooo important, and the Lord sure knows how to humble / discipline us (see Hebrews 10:4-12)!! Praise God, He put His Spirit inside us to walk this glorious new creation in Christ out!! Hang in there, dear sister!! πŸ’•

  3. Reblogged this on Life is for Living and commented:
    Why reblog a mom’s vent? Because it is so absolutely relatable! It is like you go above and beyond and even in between with your children yet they seem to take you for granted aka well is that not what moms are supposed to do anyways??!!!

    If you are a mom can you relate? If yes please share a ‘vent’ by leaving a comment πŸ™‚

  4. Oh wow. I love this post! You’re so honest, and I think all moms have had moments like this. I have. Sometimes us moms are taken for granted, we’re always there. So I smiled at this because I get it.. and feel your pain! xx

  5. Oh I feel your pain! I am sure she loves you! But I know how frustrating these things are. Just recently, I asked my 2.5yo what makes her happy, she said “daddy”, then I asked if I made her happy, her answer was “no, daddy does” 😦 Anyways, hang in there! xx
