Midnight Mommy Rants

Friday, 16 October 2009

I follow a lot of positive-thinking people on Twitter, and even some religious leaders. Every day I get to read some inspirational snippet which can act upon.

But trust me all you new mothers out there, it's hard to be a 'higher self' when you are routinely woken up by your toddlers at 3am, and you have a husband whose willingness to help with the night shifts has dissipated along with child number 2. Either that or he has learned to sleep through the wailing.

Maybe I'm just not matured enough to handle this frustration better. I'm trying my darndest, but fuck it all, it's hard when you can't even get a good night's rest.


I'll wrap my head in positivity later. For now I need this rant.

Cuz nobody's listening at home anyway.

It’s good to give yourself a burst. I emphatise with you, maybe for a mere fact that i had been a mum before. Have a cuddly talk with hubby. Someone hears you out here so rant if you need to

It’s not easy being a mummy, but as far as I know you’re one of the bestest mummy amongst my friends.

The bestest in the world being my own mummy 😀

I’ve been a silent reader for some time (I’ve seen you perform at M! before though). Trust me when I say that I keep coming back for the sole reason that your writing exudes strength and personality. Though this is the first negativity-tinged post I’ve came across, it only goes to show how we are all mere mortals. We’re never super heroes to begin with. So yes, it’s okay to let go and rant.

You’ll be back on your feet in no time, I’m sure. Hang in there! 🙂

Thanks everyone for listening, your empathy and encouragement. I’m over being crabby, partly because I forced myself to take naps in the afternoon these few days, along with the kids. :”> Simple fix to the problem, huh?
