Productive Moms Don’t Exist

Have you ever looked at Pintrest, Instagram, or Facebook and saw a post of a mom bragging about her done laundry, clean sink, swept floors, and sleeping baby? I have, and I’m here to tell you that I do not believe a single one of those moms.


Productive days don’t exist, not when you’re a mom, and they definitely don’t happen in my house. My to-do list is always about 20 to-dos (if that’s the right word) long, and when one things get crossed off the list about 3 more are added to it. I have a daily goal of doing one load of dishes, one load of laundry, pumping, and keeping Jayce alive.

And luckily, I have succeeded in keeping my sweet man alive for 8 months! 😉


And you know what? I’m learning not to care.

Jayce is clingy, and he ALWAYS needs his Momma. I’ll leave him on the ground to play with toys. All he does is stare up at me and cry. I will glance over a sink full off dishes, an overflowing laundry basket, baby toys scattered all over the ground, and then guess what? Then I pick up my baby.


So good for those six armed moms with clean houses and happy babies! 🙂 But I know that I won’t always have a sweet little snuggly baby. Someday he’ll be all grown up. The dishes will be there as long as I leave them, but having a little boy who wants me this bad just won’t last forever.
