“The natural state of motherhood is unselfishness. When you become a mother, you are no longer the center of your own universe. You relinquish that position to your children.” ~Jessica Lange

Being a mom is a hard job. And sometimes, you’ve been unselfish for TOO long. You might even feel like just running away.

What would happen if mommies decided to run away from home? 

I mean, what if you open the door and run and don’t look back?

Of course this is something I (and most moms) would never do, but sometimes it feels like to have that option would be great.

Moms have to be strong to put up with all the crap we take from our kids, mates and the world.

Unfair Stereotypes: Mommy and Daddy and Kiddo Make Three

Freaking stereotypes! The world looks at being a mom as a duty, not a loving choice. If the woman decides one day to get up pack a bag and just leave, the world would label her as a bad mom.

If a man decides to pick up and leave, the world might think, “Maybe the wife was mean, or to much to handle. Poor guy, he just needed a break.”

If the kid runs away, they are looked at as a troubled teen, attention-seeking or just plain “bad.” 

How fair it this crap?

  1. As a new mom I can relate. There is way too much pressure put on the mother nowadays. We have to be mom, dad, teacher, nurse, friend, bank, n security. Dad can walk out the house at anytime with no worries, but mom has to take get everyone in the house ready, feed everyone, pack bags, load car, drive family to their destinations, then she able to continue her day. But like the saying goes “momma baby daddy maybe”
