The 10 Things That Would Make Motherhood Way Easier

By Lori Garcia |


I love being a mother, I really do but dammit if it isn’t hard work like 95% of the time.

Yeah, yeah, it’s the hardest job you’ll ever love and everything but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t get to a girl every now and again. Call me selfish but I enjoy quiet time and hot food. I also enjoy cleanliness and order. We gladly give up this stuff in the name of motherhood because it’s a hundred billion times worth it, but is it so wrong to daydream about an easier motherhood? I think not.

I asked my fellow moms for a list of things that would make their lives easier. Their lists included everything from the hilarious (self-wiping butt app, anyone?) to the practical to the luxuriously awesome. Sit back, prop up those feet (you deserve it), and daydream with me about these 10 things that would make motherhood way easier.

    These, and someone to give birth and breastfeed the kid, and you’re go to go. But no really, a cleaning lady would be fabulous.

    all those yep yep and a someone else to earn the more money too so I can stay home with my little more often last night was one of those tantrum throwing nights where she just did not want to go to sleep and out of all that I figured out what shes been saying when we cuddled together had a good cry and I rocked her she has this mantra she repeats as shes falling to sleep “me ma ma more ma ma my mommy more mommy” which I have discovered is probably her way of telling me she wants more time with me home she also said “play with me mommy” its heart breaking at mid night when its time for both of us to just drop to listen to a little one whine for you to play and spend more time with her how does a mom deny that time is another thing that would make motherhood soooo much easier not just time to sleep or clean house but time to spend with the littles before they get to be bigs she is already so big and I miss the times when she was my little I miss mommy cuddle time when it wasn’t struggling to see what she could get into next or fighting the sleep she desperately needs
