A letter to you and a letter to me, I wish you could see what I can see.

I face guilt on a daily basis.  Guilt that I do not do enough to stimulate my children.  That perhaps I’ve made the wrong choices for them. Maybe they would be happier,  if I did things differently.. If I were more organised and more enthusiastic about motherhood. I’m sure these thoughts go through every mother’s… Continue reading A letter to you and a letter to me, I wish you could see what I can see.

Do re mi fa so….. f#cking exhausted.

Let’s start at the very beginning,  the very best place to start.  When you read you begin with ‘A, be, see’ When you birth you begin with. ‘Woah fuck me’ Sorry,  I just mentally broke out into song… Where was I going with this… Ah yes. Exhaustion. The kind of exhaustion that you get when… Continue reading Do re mi fa so….. f#cking exhausted.

It’s a; there’s a teaspoon down my toilet and McDonald’s chips in my car.. Kinda day.

I think the kids have it in for me today.. Scrap that actually,  I know they have it in for me. They’ve made that perfectly clear.. I woke up this morning,  full of good intentions.  Mainly cause they’ve had a boring week,  what with me doing the double for a couple of days.. Norovirus.. It’s… Continue reading It’s a; there’s a teaspoon down my toilet and McDonald’s chips in my car.. Kinda day.

Breastfeeding · mummyblog · Parenting · Postnatal · Siblings

The dreaded health visitor you say? Well…

You feel so exhausted, because you are an amazing mother.

What a statement.

Life has been getting the better of me recently..

Why? You ask?

Sleep deprivation is the answer.

I’m on the go all day long and I’m awoken every hour or so in the night, for feeding/playing/partying/whatever the fuck she wants! Then the day starts at 5am almost every day. So after almost 9 months of the same old shit, I feel like I’m giving more than I’ve got.

For a long time now, I’ve felt like our breastfeeding journey is approaching the finish line.

However, Lola isn’t happy with this idea as she point blank refuses to take a bottle. Which is so frustrating for me.

I have felt so trapped, alone, emotional and selfish for my decision.

In that situation, when no one can give you an answer. What do you do?

Well.. In desperation we turned to the health visitor. Unsure of what she could do or if it was a waste of time.

The outcome?

Well, this lady was exactly what I needed today, she made me realise how much I do for my children and how no matter what.. I always put them first.

Hearing the words attentive and amazing, in description of myself as a mother was enough to make me cry. Especially when I feel as vulnerable as I do right now.

So after a deep hour long conversation, she found the answer.

I don’t want to stop breastfeeding… I just need some sleep.

I feel as though a weight has been lifted from my shoulders.

Sometimes it takes an outsiders perspective, to make you realise how amazing you truly are.

Please don’t fear your health visitor, they really are there to support you and help you achieve a positive and happy life..

Cause let’s be honest, children are difficult at the best of time. A helping hand should never be turned away. Acceptance is the sign of strength, not weakness!

At war with my inner pinterest mum..

A mother of two… Sounds pretty simple… you’ve got two eyes, two ears, two arm’s, two legs and most importantly two tits (a crucial body part these two)… Then why the fuck is it so hard work at times. Jesus Christ… Us women were put on earth to carry, birth and nuture children, but someone… Continue reading At war with my inner pinterest mum..
