Almost three years ago now, in November 2017, I posted this on my personal account and following some conversations I’ve had with some ladies who have recently become mothers themselves, I thought it time to share it again ❤️
“So today a lovely lady walking with her toddler looked over at me standing behind my pram and said I made it look ‘easy’... I laughed an embarrassed kind of laugh, maybe slightly louder than I should have too.. Why? (I feel I owe it to this lady and any other parents who have ever looked at someone and thought the same thing, I know I have..!) Because nothing about being a parent is ‘easy’, she just happened to catch me at that amazing 5 mins when both children were quietly sitting in the pram, taking in the world around them and I had a chance to send a quick text on my phone..! I don’t believe that any Mother, or Father for that matter, can, hand on heart, say that it’s ever easy.. We’re all just muddling through as best as we can and as this quote says so well... we have no idea what we’re doing!
So to every parent out there who’s had a tough day.. Remember we all have tough days, but on some days when things just ‘work’ for 5 or 10 minutes, take it in, smile and fill up on that positive energy 😉 You’re doing brilliantly ❤️
