Hi MoMs,

I think as mums, none of us are perfect. Yet we all try to be what every mum aspires to be….a Supermum. I’m throwing in the toweling and calling B&#^$h!t on the whole thing. Motherhood is tough. Especially for those who do it on their own. I’m a full time uni student with two toddlers and I also help my mother run her business from home…running errands and admin mostly. It’s difficult! Sometimes I feel like I’m one of those mother’s that yell all the time or that to everyone else I must look like a terrible mother. Then one day i decided to go for a walk at sunrise…had my mum over so she watched the girls while i went. I walked the beach front from 4:30am till 6:30am. Watched the sunrise. Everything felt different…calm..peaceful..and just…different. It was then that I realised, I’m not a bad mum. I do my best to provide for my kids and needed to stop being so critical of myself all the time. I needed to stop caring what people thought, smile more and stress less. Yes, its easy said than done but I think I’m getting a little better at it now. Calmer and stressing a little less than usual. So I put it to you ladies (and dads)…chill out, stop caring what others say…your doing your best.
