The 8 Toughest Mommy Breakups

Breaking up is hard to do, like for reals.

As women first and moms second, life breakups are some of the toughest challenges we will ever be faced with. Personally, I find it hard enough to advocate for myself sometimes, let alone for my children when a breakup is warranted.

I believe the worst part of any breakup is twofold. While being the dumpee most certainly sucks, finding the courage to be the dumper can sometimes suck even harder.

Let’s examine the toughest female breakups out there. Feel free to add any breakups I may have missed in the comments below.

  • Breaking up with your child’s frenemy 1 of 8
    Breaking up with your child's frenemy
    Sometimes our child's closest friendships are the most volatile. Since our kids don't have the ability to recognize when it's time to call it quits, that's when we get to step in. Uncomfortable much?

    Breaking up with your child's daycare
    It almost always goes without saying that every daycare breakup is initiated on account of incident. I had to breakup with a daycare once and it almost killed me.

  • Breaking up with your child’s pediatrician 3 of 8

    Pros of your pediatrician:
    1) He's been with you from the beginning
    2) He knows your child's health history
    3) You can get a same day appointment

    Cons of your pediatrician:
    1) He's a jerk
    2) See #1
    3) See #1

  • Breaking up with your hairstylist 4 of 8

    Maybe your hairstylist is expensive. Maybe your hairstylist is far away. Word of caution: A good hairstylist is hard to find. You never want to be that woman who has to come crawling back to her stylist with maroon hair (says the woman who had to come crawling back to her stylist with maroon hair).

  • Breaking up with your child’s teacher 5 of 8

    This one's B-A-D because unless you're leaving the district, you'll encounter this teacher for the remainder of your child's enrollment. Awkward!

  • Breaking up with your gyno 6 of 8
    Breaking up with your gyno
    We all try to limit to amount of people who get to know us so intimately. Changing gyno's is way personal, made only more stressful from a grooming perspective.

    Hopefully you've never had to face this mommy breakup, but if you have then you already know this one is the hardest of the bunch. Ouch.

  • Breaking up with your best friend 8 of 8
    Breaking up with your best friend
    ZOMG so hard, right? Sometimes BFFs grow apart, sometimes the relationship becomes toxic, and sometimes we are simply unable to stand by for whatever reason. Super duper sad.
