I sometimes feel like a bad mum, I just want some time to myself. I have a busy (chaotic, full of life) 2 and a half year old and a calm (so far) 5 month old. My husband is fantastic but sometimes I admit, I use the tv to give myself a break and I count down to 7pm. Don’t get me wrong, I love my family and I wouldn’t change it for the world, but sometimes I need a time out. I love my vivacious little girl and when she says “luv you mummy” it melts my heart, and I’m so proud of my baby boy who has just learnt to roll from his back to his tummy. I think to be a good mum, you need your own time and time to reflect!
