Mum Draws Hilarious Pictures To Show Partner Why She’s Grumpy While Breastfeeding
A breastfeeding mum decided to draw a picture for her partner after she struggled to explain why she was always in a bad mood in the morning.
Mattea Goff struggled to explain to her husband Kris what happens next to him while he sleeps through the night in words, so decided to use her artistic skills.
The mum-of-two spends most of her nights breastfeeding her five-month-old daughter and as you can imagine she ends up feeling pretty tired and grumpy in the morning.
She shared her hilarious drawings on Facebook with the caption: "So this past weekend I was having a hard time finding the words (probably because I haven't had any sleep) to express to Kris why I'm not in the best of moods first thing in the morning. So I sat down with my coffee and drew him a visual."
Although she may not be the next Da Vinci, Mattea definitely managed to show exactly what happens while her husband sleeps and she feeds the baby.
The drawings show the couple in bed with their baby in a cot next to them. Mattea very usefully points out Kris' 'pointless nipples' in the illustration.
It's a scene most parents will be familiar with as the baby eventually wakes up wanting a feed but only mum has the 'useful nipples' so it is up to mum to feed the baby.

While Mattea is taking care of her, the baby scratches and slaps her chest before vomiting on the bed.
By the time the baby has drifted back to sleep, it's time to start a new day and Kris is well rested and ready for 'cuddles' while Mattea illustrates herself looking extremely tired and bruised, definitely not in the mood for cuddles.
A lot of parents could relate with Mattea's post, one commented: "This is the perfect illustration."
Most users were tagging their partners to try and explain to them why they are grumpy all the time, with some asking how they manage to sleep through it all.
Speaking to Buzzfeed, Mattea said: "My husband is a fantastic guy, but sometimes if you haven't lived something, you don't understand it.
"I've given my husband drawings before, but this particular set of drawings came from my lack of sleep and my desire to get my point across.
"I think these drawings really resonate with mums because the exhaustion is hard to explain to someone who hasn't lived it."
