The moms that share what their real life is like are my kind of people. I am talking about the messy bun, spit up on the shirt, house is messy – sort of moms.
They just make me feel at home and at peace with my life because I can relate so, so much.
And this mom, this mom deserves a medal. She’s a total hero in my book.
Meet Jazmyne Futrell, a mom of 4 and professional multi-tasker. She posted a photo on her Facebook page earlier last month that has since gone viral. Her caption read:
“Friends with no kids: “you go to bed at 9pm? Girl I can’t fall asleep before 11pm.”?????????
Mom friends: “you go to bed at 9am? Girl I can’t seem to stay up past 8:30.”?????????
With four kids I’m way too exhausted to even think about having a life after dark and way to busy to go to bed at a decent hour. ?” – Mixed Mom Brown Babies
The picture shows Jazmyne nursing her youngest son Koehn (7 months) while she cooks dinner and helps her oldest son, Karson (7) with homework. Her other son Karter (3) and daughter Kinley (5) sit at her feet playing a game.
Talk about having her hands full – literally!
Jazmyne told Yahoo Liftstyle that she shared the photo on social media because “there’s not enough realness on social media” and she wants to set an example for other parents.
“All the other moms looked amazing on social media. Many times I thought, ‘Can I do this?’ I hope showing photos like this lets mothers know they’re not fighting their battles alone.”
I can totally understand and respect that because it’s the truth!
I’ve only got 3 kids but man, she makes me want to up my game in the multi-tasking field.
Jazmyne is my hero and certainly deserves an applause.
We will sum up all this multi-tasking with this quote from Dr. Stephie Canale from MamasUncut, “You can burn over 1,000 calories a day just by breastfeeding!“
