Have you ever thought you couldn’t be a mom today? When your tots are screaming and putting on tantrums, sometimes you have to pull your hair out and go crazy too. When you’re out of the house, the kids can go ballistic in any public area.
Anna Strode was one of those mothers, who had bad days. She was at a coffee shop with her crabby kids when she overheard an old couple remarking on her kid’s behaviors. She couldn’t make out what the comment was because she was juggling her three children at the same time.
They were in their late 1980s, and despite the struggle Anna found herself, their words hit her right in the feels. It took about a minute when it sunk to Anna and how powerful their words were.
She overheard an old man saying that they were the best days of our lives. His wife nodded and said that it is the best by far.
It struck Anna and made her day better. She took to Instagram to share how those words affected her and changed her perspective. The post received over 400 comments and 6,000 likes.
Anna shared it on Instagram to let everyone know how much the words she overheard changed her views. The post got a lot of attention, with over 6,000 likes and 423 comments.
Anna shared that she was picking a fallen baby chino on the café floor. Her son Lachie slipped the bottle and cried over the spilled contents.
Her baby, Madi, was fidgeting because she was tired. Meanwhile, Lachie’s twin, Sammy, was dashing behind the counter and into the kitchen.
She complained that she couldn’t be a mom today.
Then that was when she heard the elderly couple. Then, Anna didn’t feel the frustrations anymore. She realized that one day her children would be all grown up and she would wish that they haven’t.
She said that one day they are going to miss all this.
