Welcome to our month long series of Mumfessions!
We all know being a mum is the hardest job in the world. It’s completely life-changing. Equal parts amazing and terrifying, we all somehow muddle through looking after our first baby with not a notion of what we are doing.
You’ll know love like you’ve never felt before. You’ll find yourself staring at your baby and thinking they are the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen in your entire existence. But, you’ll also experience exhaustion that would make even the toughest of NAVY Seal’s break down and give up. Your patience will be tested to its absolute limit. You might cry. You might hide in the under the stairs cupboard just to get a bit of peace. You’ll find yourself Googling things like ‘green poo baby normal?’ and ‘can I die from lack of sleep?’
But if there’s one universal thing that binds us parents together, it’s that we all do our best even though we haven’t a clue what we’re doing… that and the fact that we all have deep, dark confessions bursting to get out!
You know what I’m talking about. Those little white lies we tell our kids in order to avoid a meltdown.
‘No love, when the Ice Cream Van plays that song, it means they are actually out of ice cream.’
Yup you’re not alone. We’ve all done things like that; it’s called survival! And while it doesn’t make you a bad parent even in the slightest, it is nice to get them your chest now and again.
So put down that bag of bricks mamas, step into The M Word Mumfessional and unload. That’s right, there’s no judgement here, only support, because let’s face it, we’ve all done things like this and more.
In that vein, I’m about to unload my top five mummy confessions, here goes. #SorryNotSorry
Phew… okay I feel much better now!
