This Video Explains Why Being a Full-time Mom is Exhausting
Undoubtedly, one of the best titles we receive in our life is that of motherhood and, consequently, many women consider the best profession in the world to be a full-time mom.
However, and as can be seen in this funny YouTube video, being a full-time mom can sometimes be a really exhausting task in which we dedicate a large part of our time to others for 365 days a year, forgetting ourselves.
In addition, there is no better repayment than the satisfaction of doing the best for our family and, needless to say, we lack any kind of rest and vacation. That said, it would be a job that not everyone would apply for, but many women carry it out with great love and dedication.
For that reason, an American mother portrayed how difficult it can be to carry out domestic chores with a baby around, in order to prove to the world that it is the most complicated task that has existed at any time.
The video shows how exhausting it is to be a full-time mom
Have you ever felt that those clothes that you folded and put away, just magically teleported to another place in your house? Did this ever happen to you? What you swept or ordered suddenly goes back to its original state?
These common motherhood scenes are displayed by a young woman who perfectly understands these sensations and mysterious facts of every home where there is a child. And she knows it thanks to her 15-month-old little baby.
Also, this charming video portrays the life of many mothers, showing how toys never stop being scattered everywhere, even when we are tidying up and taking the trouble to keep them in their place.
As seen on YouTube, being a full-time mom is no easy task, even less so if you do each activity with that little person who, behind you, is undoing everything you did. Hence, at the end of the day, that dreaded question “What did you do all day?” and the unnecessary reproaches appear.
The video is a reminder of what it means to be a full-time mom.
This excellent video, far from being an ode to the desperation and stress that can arise in many women, summarizes common situations in motherhood in one minute and twenty-one seconds that delighted viewers from all over the world.
The video shows the implications of being a full-time mom and already has more than 9,200,000 views and has been very popular on many networks because it explains the difficulties that any full-time mother experiences.
However, it is worth clarifying that the video not only emphasizes how difficult it is to keep the home tidy and any domestic chores with a young child, but also the time it takes to keep them clean and healthy.
Did your baby ever get dirty playing in the park and, after bathing them, you must bathe them again since they got dirty after eating? All that, not to mention the cleaning and disinfection of the home after the child played or was fed.
Exhausted, but satisfied and happy
It is true, no manual or instructions could have prepared us for these parts of motherhood the way the video did. Being a full-time mother takes pure devotion and patience, which come with the trade.
Maybe at times you feel tired, frustrated and even want to throw in the towel. However, there are days in which you understand what it means to be a full-time mother, a mother with all the jobs: nurse, cook, teacher, storyteller, tear dryer, etc.
Some days are more difficult than others, but always keep a smile as you continue tidying around the home, for your children and for the family that you formed. You continue to set limits, because not everything that contributes to the upbringing of your child is rosy.
In motherhood there are magical, sweet and pleasant moments, as well as those shown in this YouTube video, perhaps more frustrating, sad and unpleasant. But all of them are part of your life and you must know how to manage them.
After all, we love our children anyway, don’t we?
