A Minnesota mom is striking a chord with parents online after sharing an emotional and honest post about what life is really like when you're a stay-at-home parent. Bridgette Armstrong has been a stay-at-home mom for over a year, since her now month-old daughter, Riley, was just five months old.
On a recent day when she was feeling overwhelmed, lonely and "at her wits end," Armstrong shared her feelings on Facebook. That we are lazy. That it's not 'real' work, so we have nothing to complain about. But the truth is, it's f lonely and overwhelming. Armstrong goes on to list things she personally knows to be true about stay-at-home motherhood, from getting zero alone time during the day to sometimes neglecting to shower or change clothes, because "it's already stained, and no use in ruining more clothes.
Armstrong, 25, says she's been surprised by the amount of negative responses to her words. As a society, we forget that there are also bad parts and bad days, especially when it comes to being a parent. The young mom, who lives with her boyfriend of eight years, says she hopes her message will encourage others to check in on their friends who are stay-at-home parents.
She lives in a small beach town on the Atlantic coast of Florida with her husband and two kids. When she isn't writing, she can be found at the beach or exploring Florida's theme parks with her family. IE 11 is not supported. For an optimal experience visit our site on another browser.
