This Woman Drew A Comic To Explain To Her Husband Why She’s So Tired, And It Will Crack You Up

Empathy goes a long way. Especially when you and your partner have newborns to take care of. However, Mattea Goff’s husband Kris couldn’t understand why she was always exhausted in the morning. After all, they’re in this together, right? Making sure Kris gets it, Mattea decided to illustrate her explanation.

“My husband is a fantastic guy, but sometimes if you haven’t lived something, you don’t understand it,” Goff told BuzzFeed. “I’ve given [him] drawings before, but this particular set of drawings came from my lack of sleep and my desire to get my point across.”

Thinking there might be other moms who could benefit from showing their husbands the five-panel comic, Mattea shared it on Facebook. And she was right. As of this article, her post has already been liked by over 155K and shared by more than 205K people. “When I first gave the drawings to my husband, he definitely thought they were funny. But he’s just as surprised as I am that they’ve gotten so much attention!”

“I think these drawings really resonate with moms because the exhaustion is hard to explain to someone who hasn’t lived it,” Goff added. “But when you’re able to create a visual with pictures, it’s something that’s easy to share when you don’t have the words.”

The stupid girls making remarks like - If my BF/husband doesn't understand why i am tired, he is not worth it. Not every person on this earth understands everything, may be your BF/hubby working too hard and spending so much time in office to provide you with best of world has to offer, he comes home after doing 10 -12 hours of exhaustive work, play with child a little and goes in deep sleep. Simply start a conversation and let him know. Not knowing something is different then knowing and not understanding. May be these women are not worth of any relationship and should stay single for rest of there lives.

In my opinion, not understanding is fine, we're not all walking geniuses, right? It's the willing to learn (and listen, which should be mutual) that matters.

my wife and i we got 3 kids. and i Don't need a drawing to understand why she was tired when our kids were baby. if her husband doesn't understand why she was tired he's a moron. unless he thought his baby sleeps through the night without getting up.

Some men, especially those who didn't grow up in big families with lots of babies or young children, really are this innocently clueless. It's not a matter of being a "moron" its a matter of not having had the life experience of being around babies or young mothers. Good for you, you got it, but other men don't and its only a problem if they are given the knowledge and then are still deadbeats that don't appropriately appreciate their partner's struggles and/or don't do their share of the parenting.
