Why Are Moms Always So Tired? by Super Sirrious Mom

Why are moms always so tired

Being a mom comes with a guarantee that you will be tired for the REST OF YOUR LIFE.

Okay, I’m not sure about the rest of your life because my oldest child is two. I am convinced though, I may never sleep again.

My youngest is about seven months old now and finally sleeping through the night. She only woke up about three-four times last night for a boobie. Alright, so maybe she doesn’t sleep through the night. Why do I keep telling people that? She doesn’t wake up screaming anymore and doesn’t need to be rocked, bounced, swung, fed, changed, and the witness of an animal sacrifice just to fall back asleep. Thank God, we were running out of chickens.

So WHY am I still so tired? I mean my daughter usually wakes up between 5-6 am and my son usually wakes up between 6-7 am. With my daughter only waking up three-four times at night that should be plenty of rest, right?

Now that I think of it, I am getting plenty of rest. We start our bedtime routine at 7 pm usually. I don’t have super-mom powers, so sometimes it’s 8 pm..9 pm. Whatever, quit judging me. It doesn’t matter what time I start our bedtime routine because my son HATES SLEEP. If we happen to start our routine at seven and are in bed before eight, my son will usually fall asleep pretty quick. By pretty quick I mean around midnight.

Let’s recap. I’m getting plenty of sleep.

Falling asleep around midnight,  waking up three-four times with the baby throughout the night, then waking up between 5 and 6 am. Okay, I am seriously not seeing the problem. Even if I was not getting enough sleep at night it’s not like I do anything during the day except lay around. I’m a stay at home mom for goodness sake.

The only things I do all day with the kids is feed, bathe, dress, play with, teach, read to, care for, and change their diapers. Then I only do a few things around the house, such as cook, clean, laundry, dishes, vacuum, and sweep. None of these few things I do all day are tiring. I should have plenty of energy to accomplish those things I might do that day.
Since we are lazy moms, why not do all of our shopping online?

I absolutely can not wrap my mind around why I am so tired! Maybe I am oversleeping. Maybe I have too much time to myself. I can usually go pee by myself once a day and get a shower every three days. That has to be the problem. I am relaxing too much. A body at rest tends to stay at rest, right? I’m pretty sure I just hit you with some physics.

I guess I will never know why I am so damn tired. It’s okay though, that is why God invented coffee. That is why God invented Starbucks. God invented coffee for moms. For lazy moms who oversleep and do nothing, like me!

Are you a tired mom? Are you like me and have absolutely no idea why you are so tired? Tell me in the comments!

    I’m going through the same thing and feeling the same thing. That’s so weird. But I’m happy that I’m not alone with such “tired” feelings.
    I guess it’s the lack of drive or motivation that makes motherhood tiring sometimes. We don’t get paid for what we do that’s why we sometimes question what we’re doing things for… We get tired of doing something that’s unappreciated, undermimed, undervalued, under estimated, etc.

  2. Ouch! I am scared 🐒

  3. I identify completely with this. My daughter has the worst sleeping habits possible. We co-sleep, she won’t sleep before 10, yes, she still breast feeds about 2 times at night and oh, I’m a very very timet sleeper. Then I’m a stay at home mom too who’s constantly told how she’s super lazy and doesn’t do anything around the house. I’m working from home too. My fitbit keeps telling me im not getting enough sleep but I’ve understood now it must be broken. How’s that possible? We’re housewives right? 😂

  4. You could be low on blood sugar if you’re not assimilating all the nutrients from what you need.

  5. I relate to this on a spiritual level. My daughter is two and she’s still not sleeping through the night, I guess she just hates sleep. I work from home while juggling a toddler and a school, I mean, there’s no reason for me to be this tired right? 😂😂
