Yep I am having one of ‘those’ days. You know those days when you wake up and everything is just hard and overwhelming. Bub’s unsettled, theres bills pilled up to our eyeballs, you don’t have one clean pair of knickers and you have zero food in the fridge.
Mamas have a bloody tough job we are a carer, cleaner, cook, finance manager, therapist all whilst trying to follow our own needs and dreams. Can we REALLY do it all?
I know I tend to put a lot of pressure on myself to have everything perfect whilst always worrying if bub is get the very very best. And lets be honest most the time I have mum guilt over something dumb like the carrots I just gave Harper weren’t fucking organic.
We all give our friends advice on how to manage it all but do we ever take our own advice? I know I don’t. So today when I had a billion things to do I looked at it all and said to myself “what is ACTUALLY important and what is just me putting pressure on myself to be an amazing mother/ wife?”. Then I went and crossed out at least 5 things.
At the end of the day you are only ONE person your not expected to be on top of it all 100% of the time. We are only HUMAN and not bloody superwoman (even though secretly we all are).
So Mama’s out there you don’t have to take this day all at once, but rather, one step, one toddler tantrum, one poonami explosion at at time. You are only one person. Things will get done when they get done.
