Fashion, beauty, lifestyle and motherhood

Being a mum is the most the most amazing gift. I love my daughter endlessly. I really can't imagine my life without her.

Ok… so now that's out the way, here's the deal. As mums we all try to be perfect, or others looking in might say, "oh she's just a perfect mother, she just makes it seem so easy". but is that really the truth. Of course most of the time we 'try' to be perfect(exaggerating on the TRY).
There are certain things mothers are not supposed to think, or at least say out loud. But my thoughts every now and the may include and are not limited to :
If she say mummy one more time I'm going to scream.
I think I need a drink.
I need some me time.
Yeah yeah… I know I have one child, but I'm so use to being by myself with my own space my entire life and sometimes being a mum can be a bit overwhelming.

No matter how perfect of a mum we try to be, we all feel it, we've all experienced it.
So here's my confession:
  • Sometimes I wish I could be alone for a day (I know I would miss her if I go without her any longer).
  • Sometimes I wish I didn't need to think about what to make for dinner.
  • Sometimes I wish I didn't need to do school runs.
  • Sometimes I wish I could walk around half naked in the house and be spontaneous.
  • I do turn the burnt side of the toast/fried plantains down, and cross my fingers that's she wont notice.
  • I do sometimes wish she could go to bed early so I can watch my inappropriate movies and have a drink.
  • I do promise her treats and when I forget I tell her there was none at the shops.
  • I sometimes get fast food cause I'm not in the mood to make her a proper meal.
  • There are moments when I wonder what my life would be like without a child.

On the contrary, those moments when she gives me huggles (hugs+ cuddles, its our thing haha), and tells me I'm the most beautiful mummy. Or when she came home with a certificate for being the star student of the year in her class. These are the moments I live for.
Sure I've had bad days when I'm just not in the mood. Sometimes I need to take more than a few deep breaths. But then her little kisses would light up my heart, and at the end of the day my heart is fuller than I ever thought it could be.
I get to play the role of being a parent to this amazing little beauty, who looks up to me and who cross rooms to give me a hug. And all I need to do is be the best version of me, love and feed her.
Being a mother is hard and admitting this is not failure, it's a fact. We are not perfect, but at least we try!!

"The quickest way for a parent to get a child's attention is to sit down and look comfortable".

Sending loads of love your way..
