Constance Hall's Ode to the Confusing Life of a Mom Is All of Us

The popular mom blogger nails the conflicting emotions moms feel about everything from work to personal space.

Constance Hall is at it again.

The viral Australian blogger is known for her outspoken opinions, and she's been sharing them for about 10 years on her blog Queens of Constance and over on Facebook, where she's amassed more than 900,000 followers.

Her biggest takeaway? She's kind of baffled by the dichotomy of motherhood.

"I've never been happier and never been more miserable in my life," she explains on her website. "I'm in a constant state of confusion as to whether or not I'm 'happy'."

We SO get it!

No surprise, then, that on Sunday, when Hall shared a poetic blurb detailing her bewilderment on Facebook, it was shared more than 14,000 times in just 24 hours!

"Motherhood is so confusing," she began the post. "You work 24 hours a day and get asked why you don't work...."


She continues: "Your toddler actually ate dog sh*t yesterday yet won't even try a meal that you slaved away to make him..."

So gross! But according to the post's comments section, also SO TRUE!

"My son ate fresh bird poo off the ground last year," confessed one commenter.

"My son used to eat chewed up chewing gum from the ground," spilled another.

And from a third: "Mine refused dinner and then was trying to suck on my toes."

Priceless! Here are some of Hall's other spot-on nuggets of contradiction:

"You're never ever alone yet you always feel a bit lonely.."

"You're always busy and always bored..."

"You spend your whole day wanting some space from the very people that you never want to leave..."

"It's so confusing because you wouldn't change a single thing."

It's like she's in our brain!
