What I learned since becoming a mummy

Normally when life gets a little tough I am the first to grab a pen (or ipad) and write about it. Writing sorts out my brain. Writing stuff down is like having a good tidy up in my head, put things in the right places if you like. But the last few weeks I have not wanted to write, most likely because there are things in my head that I don’t really want to give a place, this also widely known as denial.

But one thing I have learned since becoming a mummy is not to be too hard on myself. I do the best I can and a lot of times the best is pretty damn good! So it is ok to let things slip every now and then.

A couple more things I have learned over the last 19 months are:

There is no such thing as a perfect parent, and just because other mums look mega organised doesn’t mean that they are. It is easy to compare yourself to your mummy friends and think that they are doing a far better job than you are. The chances are they’re not!

Always trust your gut! Trust your mummy instinct, it tends to be right. The few times I didn’t, I really regretted it.

Anyway, I hope that I will soon get back to writing regularly, and probably bore you endlessly with my stories about sleeping, no sleeping, new words and all sorts of other mummy stuff πŸ™‚

  1. we all have moments like this….Take your time and when you’re ready…you’ll resume writing again…Remember you are still experiencing the ‘grief’ process and so very understandable..Diane

  2. Very honest. I too try to be the best mommy but that doesn’t mean being perfect… Perfect is boring anyways πŸ™‚

  3. So true, we are our own worst critics. And I think it’s a lesson we never fully learn. Our mind is so complex. It’s these reflection posts that help sink-in the meaningful stuff in life.

    1. We are, I find it hard to accept that I am not, and never will be, super mum! But we have to keep reminding ourselves that as long as we love and care for our children we’re doing great πŸ™‚
