Being a mother is the most rewarding, busy, crazy experience of my life. You would think that being surrounding by four little people that I’m never alone. I am constantly feeding someone, putting someone to bed, playing with them, running after them, putting plasters on their hurts. But being a mum can be so lonely.
Motherhood is a rollercoaster of emotions; pride, happiness, worry and pure exhaustion. I don’t think anyone really know what becoming a mum is like until you are one!
I think the biggest compliment I could be given is that I’m a good mum and the most hurtful thing would be that I’m a rubbish mum. As a mum I try to do my best at all times for my little people, I want people to look at us walking down the street and think she’s got it together when even on the inside I might not!
It’s a constant battle with wanting to do your best for you children but also worrying you aren’t doing enough. Although I don’t think it’s physically possible for me to give anything more!
I also worry what others think of me as I mentioned in my previous blog. I think as mums it is very easy to be judgemental without even realising you are. I take comments to heart and may take them in the wrong way as I’m sure a lot of mums do!
Just know that whether you are breast feeding, bottle feeding, co sleeping, cot sleeping, self weaning, puréed weaning, a stay at home mum or a working mum, we are all doing what is best for our babies, ourselves and our family.
Support other mums, your friends who are mums, thank your own mum, just remember we are in this together and There Ain’t No Hood Like Motherhood!
Thank you for reading this blog post, now go and message a friend and tell them what a fantastic mum they are!
