“I wasn’t looking forward to this Mother’s Day,” the former Real Housewives of Orange County star, 35, captioned a photo on Instagram on Sunday, May 10, that showed her smiling with her kids, two of whom were crying. “Quarantined with 3 screaming toddlers for 9 weeks while trying to work hasn’t exactly been a prime environment for me to feel like I’m earning any mother-of-the-year awards.”

“Being prisoners in our home has killed our spirits and crushed our souls,” Meghan admitted of the coronavirus quarantine and social distancing restrictions. “Then add this: it’s my first Mother’s Day I’m spending without a partner, something I NEVER envisioned. ‘Families are created out of unconditional love’ I thought. ‘Two parents weather life’s storms but always remain together to celebrate the subsequent rainbows’ I thought. But that is not my story and that makes me feel deeply regretful – like I failed my children by not giving them a nuclear family. But today I am refusing to dwell on mistakes and s–tty situations I can’t control; today I control my reaction.”

I wasn’t looking forward to this Mother’s Day. Quarantined with 3 screaming toddlers for 9 weeks while trying to work hasn’t exactly been a prime environment for me to feel like I’m earning any mother-of-the-year awards. Being prisoners in our home has killed our spirits and crushed our souls. Then add this: it’s my first Mother’s Day I’m spending without a partner, something I NEVER envisioned. “Families are created out of unconditional love” I thought. “Two parents weather life’s storms but always remain together to celebrate the subsequent rainbows” I thought. But that is not my story and that makes me feel deeply regretful – like I failed my children by not giving them a nuclear family. But today I am refusing to dwell on mistakes and shitty situations I can’t control; today I control my reaction. I miss my step-kids who made me a mother before I had children of my own and I am sending them so much love. I miss my freedom. And I mourn the loss of what could’ve been. But despite this I look at my beautiful tribe with pride because I am a mother to three incredible kids and I’m the only one they’ve got. To all the mamas out there, I lift you up in solidarity for the all the hard times and in celebration of the good times. Hats off to us today, for all the hats we wear. 🎩 🧢 👒🎓👑
