An Ode To An Average Mum Like me

An Ode To An Average Mum Like Me

I know you’re feeling tired and maybe a little blue
Your thoughts of a million scenarios
And what you think you should do

That poo stain up their back
And spaghetti in there hair
Their beautiful clothes
When you have nothing yourself to wear

Sometimes you try your hardest
And it never seems enough
But you just keep on trying
Because you’re Mum, You’re tough

Your feelings come last
Your hairs in a messy bun
But that’s OK you’ll deal with it
Because you are a mum

Night time falls it’s time for bed
You do a little dance
Because you manage to get a coffee that’s hot
it’s been your only chance

You sit and ponder all the things
You said or did that day
You’re feeling guilty for shouting
Even though nastily they did play

Just remember that whilst you’re here and feeling kind of glum
There are little eyes looking up to you
Proud and happy that you’re their mum

From this mummy to you 

We have all been there where we feel useless or not enough, friends have come and gone. You feel like you mean little or nothing. I just want to tell you, you are doing the best you can. And to those little people that are looking up to you that best is more than good enough.

Stop being so hard on yourselves and don’t always put yourselves last. You deserve time for yourself. Whether you are a working mum, stay at home mum, someone who bottle feeds or breastfeeds. If you take them to every club going or just sit and play games. YOU are doing the best for you and don’t ever compare yourself to others.

Thank you for reading and keep smiling,

You’ve got this!

 

 

 

Bullying : Why? Really does it make you feel better destroying somebody else?

You may have seen the video I made recently regarding Harry and the fact that right now he is going through a really rough time. I wanted to write a post in the vain hope that it will stop anyone from treating others the way I have watched Harry be treated. I hope it will stop them destroying someone else’s confidence the way they have my amazing son! Continue reading “Bullying : Why? Really does it make you feel better destroying somebody else?”

What Does Your Favourite Disney Character Say About Who You Are?

You’re never too old to be a Disney fan. And don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.
Now that we’ve settled that, on to the important yet extremely difficult question – who is your favourite Disney character?

This is a question that some of us will struggle to answer while others will know straight away. If you need some help deciding, check out The World of Miss Mindy Disney Collection to find figurines of some of the most popular Disney characters.
When you’ve had some time to consider, read on for what your choice says about you. (And if you can’t decide, read on regardless!)

Aladdin

You love a bit of adventure. You have huge aspirations in life and want to escape the humdrum of everyday life to make it big in the world! Not only that, you’re a true romantic at heart. Oh, and your best friends turn to you for a fun night out.

Winnie the Pooh

The kindest and most caring friend is how your nearest and dearest would describe you. You’re loyal to the core, and a true optimist. The glass is always half full in your view! You’re empathic to those around you, and win people over with your childlike and selfless nature.

 

Peter Pan

Forever a child at heart, people flock to you for your fun and youthful spirit. You encourage others to just let go, have fun and not worry too much about ‘grown up affairs’

Elsa from Frozen

Though you can put up an icy front at times, you’re generous, loyal and loving at your core. You will also do anything to protect your loved ones, even if it means turning a little fierce.

Belle from Beauty and the Beast

You’re likely to have a love of literature, and are the awesome combination of brave and brainy. You’re not afraid to be yourself, even if that means not fitting in with the crowd. When it comes to your family, you’ll do anything to keep them safe.

Ariel from The Little Mermaid

You’re not afraid to dream seemingly impossible dreams. You might not necessarily feel like you belong where you are and you long to explore further lands.

Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty

Hey, we had to throw a villainous character into the mix. And who better than the iconic Maleficent? If Maleficent is your fave, let’s just say you know how to make an entrance. You have a somewhat intimidating personality, and you may secretly care a lot about what people think of you.

Simba from The Lion King

You may be a little reckless and strong-willed at times, and you don’t love bowing down to authority. But you ultimately own up to your responsibilities and have all the qualities of a truly great leader!

From collectible figurines to the films themselves, there are so many wonderful ways to interact with and enjoy our favourite Disney characters. Let’s take the time to learn from them, too.
