Parenting is tough!
I find its an easy choice everyday to put my kids happiness & well being before my own. Yet i find it so difficult to take care of myself as part of "The keeping kids alive" routine.
Whilst teaching them life lessons, i'm learning strengths I didn't know I had & fears I wish that wasn't there.
When guiding them to do the right thing, I ask myself "Do I even know what the right thing is?"
Keeping my fears & emotions hidden, yet always taking on all their little worries.
I Doubt myself every single day & wonder how on earth we ever manage to leave the house.
But so far I have learnt, its alright to wing motherhood as nobody has all the answers. Its alright to put the laundry in the machine and never turn it on, Its ok to send the kids out in odd socks or forget their coats.
Other mum's are also losing their shit, they are just better at hiding it.
Whilst I attempt to show them the ways of life on a daily basis, I have come to realise they are teaching me what life is about & I'm learning alot about myself along our exhausting yet very precious journey.
