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!

Or want a special oil to rub into their bumps whilst their pregnant to try to hide their stretch marks. I wonder why they can’t just be proud of their tiger stripes?

My Bucket List – Things I want to do before I turn 40!

I mentioned in an earlier post how life is too short yet we are all wasting it and mentioned how I should probably write a bucket list. So here is my things to do before I turn 40. I’m 35 now so I have 5 years to complete my list. I think 10 is an achievable number and if by some miracle I complete them all then I can always write another ten 😉 Continue reading “My Bucket List – Things I want to do before I turn 40!”
