I live in USA, my parents live in Pakistan, and every day without fail I FaceTime them, even if it’s only for a few minutes. And every day without fail I tell my mother that I’m exhausted.
It’s become a running joke with us, my perpetual exhaustion, but what can I say, I really do feel exhausted all the time! I wonder how mothers of 2,3 or multiple kids do it when I’m this tired with just 1 kid to contend with. Or is it just a layering on of more exhaustion with each successive kid? Does it level out at some point? Reach a plateau? Or do moms go through life eternally in need of a good back rub?
