Mum, this word has all kind of meanings and expectations. As women and mum we are trying to be so many different things to so many different people. At the moment and and forever i have been trying to give my son’s extra, extra guidance, learning and more. My eldest has language development delay. Since he was 2 years old he has been goingbto speech therapy. I feel like i am back at school trying to do assignments that never end, while trying to fulfil all the other development needs of both my boys. I often am not sure if i am giving enough attention to the other “important ” areas . As mum’s we don’t ever seem to met our own expectations , we under estimate abilities, and mostly it seems we underestimate our children’s ability to learn. I am myself still learning to take it easy on myself as a mum.
