A mum’s crying selfie has his highlighted another side to parenting.
When it all became too much for Tess Holiday, the model found her self in tears.
Sharing her crying selfie on Instagram, Holiday hopes to highlight the reality of being a mum.
“This is the reality of being a mum,” she writes. “I've been up since 3 am, & every time I get Bowie to sleep & try to lay him down, he wakes up. He is teething & has no clue I have to work today, & most days I can work 15 hour days, take care of both boys & put some lipstick on & deal with it.
“Most days I drink my coffee & smile at every little thing he does thinking it's the best thing in the world, but not today.”
In the honest post, Holiday reveals she’s been crying for nearly two hours, something most mums can relate to.
“I've been crying for nearly two hours, & I'm crying as I write this. I've reached my limit, exceeded it to be honest.”
She finished the post saying she hopes “one day that changes & society views mothers as the flawed human beings we are that are just trying to keep our shit together like everyone else.”
