Don't worry. No one else 'gets' me either.

I like the following to the extreme:
My son, Ayden
Cats
Trees
Eyes
Alcohol
Books
Reading
The female body
Art
Morbidity
The color green
Sex
Potatoes
Sleep
Kissing
Butter

I’m trying to study for this Chem exam. I hate gas laws and this prof. This is going to be the hardest exam yet.

That stupid job interview video for the most difficult job in the world is the dumbest thing I’ve ever seen and exemplifies everything I hate about modern day mothers.
Motherhood is not a job. Parenting is…

 I did read the entire thread before posting. I agree that with you ”… to stop viewing parenthood as this horrible job and to actually enjoy the role. It’s not a job, it’s a role in your lifeOpinions are just that, opinions. If I had to chose between my aide job and motherhood as to which was harder I’d say motherhood. It’s kind of a big deal to raise another human being. I’m not just responsible for another person, I am to help build their character and guide their morals. My son is going to be the next generation… My job as a mother is the most important. I pointed out that it didn’t specify what type of mother they were talking about but how they lumped us all together. As for modern day mothers, I am one. I’m young and don’t regret having my son early. He is my life. I don’t just raise my son though, I work, go to school and try and maintain myself in all the mess that is my life. It is hard. For me. I have bad days and wonderful ones too. When my son looks at me and says “Mama, you’re the best mom ever” my heart melts and I know I’m doing something right. And the struggle I go through is worth it because of him. What about mothers like me? I applaud this video. 

As for “
So my “deeper seeded issue” that I need to take care of comes from the fact that my mother never made me feel like I was a burden or an inconvenience to her because she chose to have me and I will never make my daughter feel like a burden or inconvenience to me.” I never felt that way with my mother. I sure hope my son doesn’t feel that way with me either. I didn’t mean to make my comments sound negative but when your a baby, toddler, young adult and then teenager it’s not typical to say thank you to your  mom for just being your mom. I always expected my mother to be there for me, she still is, but it didn’t dawn on me that she has other responsibilities, let alone needs alone or adult time. I get that now. Her job was 24/7. (and kind of still is) If I were sick at 3am she was right there with me. If my car broke down at 10pm she was the one to come help me. It’s like she’s on call 24/7. She doesn’t get paid in monetary value and isn’t often told how good a job she’s doing. I get it. 


By appreciating your mother whether it’s from this video or on your own is the start to better parenting. Not everyone is as lucky to have parent’s like ours. Maybe they need a video to help them along for when they have their children and so on.

Motherhood is not a job. Parenting is challenging, yes, but it’s not this horribly difficult job. Degrees in medicine and…

Also, this video wasn’t about anyone patting themselves on the back. As far as I know, it wasn’t even made by a mom?

It was about appreciating YOUR mother on Mother’s Day. Even if your mom wasn’t perfect, she did a lot for you if she was around to raise you. It’s pretty shitty to just be like “No she didn’t, parenting is a piece of cake.”

I’m a single mother and a medical student. I work full time and got to school full time. Being a mother is a job in a sense and it’s not for everyone.. I feel like the video was extreme to prove a point and make you think. Your mother is someone who hopefully is always there for you and to many is probably disregarded in ways and taken advantage of to a point. That’s not necessarily a bad thing so don’t take it that way. I want my son to know I’m always there for him no matter what, just like my mother was for  me. Should I have told her thank you more often and that I appreciated her as much as I do, yes. My mother worked her ass off and it wasn’t easy. I didn’t realize that until now and I’m doing that same thing. 

I’d also like to point out that the video didn’t state single mothers or stay at home mothers, just moms. The video was meant as a reminder of all the things our mothers do for us at any given moment. If you’re going to get upset over a video promoting appreciation for moms then you might have a deeper seeded issue you need to take care of.

I shared that video with my mom right after I saw it days ago.
