Mother Takes Brutally Honest Photos To Show What “Mother’s Day” Really Looks Like


Photographer and mom of two boys, Giedre Gomes, believes that motherhood is a magical journey that is both rewarding and satisfying. She absolutely loves being a mom, but she also knows that motherhood isn’t all rainbows and butterflies.

According to Giedre, motherhood is not remembering what it’s like to get a full night’s sleep, wiping more poop than you ever thought you’d see in your life. Motherhood is no longer having privacy, never peeing or showering in peace. Motherhood is using your shirt to wipe runny noses and dirty faces. Motherhood is learning how to do everything with one hand while carrying a baby in another. Motherhood is waking up with a little butt or foot in your face. Motherhood is breastfeeding whenever, wherever. Motherhood is yoga pants and a bad hair day. Motherhood is no longer shopping alone. Motherhood is having a filthy car all the time. Motherhood is not being able to call in sick because it’s a 24/7 job without a paycheck.

And the list goes on. But in the end, Giedre wouldn’t have it any other way. Being a mom means being completely and totally overwhelmed by love, joy, responsibility, and selflessness.

With the help of her mommy friends, Giedre created this little project just in time for Mother’s day, to remind everyone what motherhood really looks like.
