If you’re anything like us, you’ve probably experienced a hangover once or twice before (…or more, let’s be honest). And if you have kids, you probably know the similarities between a hangover and a day in the life of a mom are uncanny. For those who aren’t familiar with one or the other, or both, let us enlighten you:
- When you first wake up in the morning, you’re a little groggy. You didn’t get much sleep. You don’t look good. And your brain is rattling. It’s a brand new day, yet you already look tired, weathered and wrung out.
- Your ears are sensitive to all the noises around you. Everything is so loud. SO LOUD. You just want to mute everyone and everything around you, lay in a dark room (in complete silence) and not move.
- When it comes to food, you grab whatever you can to make yourself feel okay. You think you can eat, you want to eat, but you just can’t. It’s like a constant tease.
- Your body feels like it’s having a constant panic attack. You’re anxious, you’re sweaty, you’re shaking, and you’re having palpitations.
- You try to focus, but you just can’t concentrate. It’s like your brain turned into legitimate mush.
- You’re dying for a nap at any point throughout the day, even if you can’t sleep. You just need a few minutes to yourself to re-coup.
Motherhood is basically one massive hangover without the drinking and the fun… Check out our latest #MOMTRUTH video to see what we mean!
