Mom Confesses Why She Seems 'Mean' After Spending All Day With the Kids

Feeling overstimulated as a mom is common.

There's no job quite like motherhood. Whether you're a stay-at-home mom or a working mom, chances are good that, as much as you love your children, you've felt burnt out and overstimulated before... and more often than not, going too long without getting sleep and a break results in not being able to be the mom you really want to be.

If that sounds familiar to you, keep reading. While we don't have a one size fits all solution to that problem, there's one mom out there on TikTok who's sharing her own feelings on the subject, making sure that no one feels alone in the struggle.


Adding a video to a TikTok trend where users confess to their darker sides, Mom got real as a cover of "99 Problems" played in the background. 

"You think I'm mean? You should see when I'm overstimulated & my kids won't stop talking/crying," she wrote.

Being a mom who isn't able to catch her breath and regulate her own emotions can be a very, very brutal experience... and this mama isn't the only one, judging by the comments on the post.

One fellow parent wrote, "I try so hard to have patience but I’m so exhausted and they just drive me insane." 

Others commented to simply tell her they were happy she opened up, because they feel the same way (and experience the mom guilt that comes with it).

Just take it one day at a time, moms. We're doing our best!
