I’m the mom who secretly cries in the bathroom
because it is too much to take in.
I’m the mom who constantly gives in to her child
because picking battles is a crucial part of my day.
I’m the mom who is always yelling “no don’t do that”
because my child is putting himself in dangerous situations.
I’m the mom who begs and pleads with my child
because they will not get dressed or even eat.
I’m the mom who is always chasing her child
because he is so energetic he just can not sit still for a second.
I’m the mom who feels guilty for being more focused on one kid
because that one child has so many needs to keep up with.
I’m the mom who is constantly consoling my child
because he can’t understand why kids will not play.
I’m the mom who advocates for her child
because other’s don’t really know what he truly needs.
I’m the mom who is constantly getting criticized
because people just can’t try to understand
I’m the mom who at the end of the day tries her best
because that is all I can really do
I’m the mom of a special needs child
just trying to get through each day.
