They address the emptiness and strain that being at home raising little kids all the time can cause your mental health, and how it often bleeds into a marriage and overall happiness with no one to turn to:
“Well I’ve been thinking about All these pills I’m taking I wash them down with an ice cold beer And a love I ain’t been making Oh, I feel like I’m burning up With words I ain’t been saying And all these pills I’m taking”
Though it’s a pretty dark take on the topic, I can only imagine there are plenty of times where a lot of housewives and stay-at-home moms relate to every single word. I mean, I feel like you can only tolerate so much Peppa Pig before you feel like at least setting your TV on fire.
I know I’ve never heard song quite like it before, and I’m impressed every single day by all the kickass moms I know, whether they stay-at-home or work a full-time job.
It’s the hardest gig in the world no matter what, and I know I wouldn’t be here today without mine.
