Motherhood is… 

I read a wonderfully simple blog post over at Lifeinthemumslane simply entitled.

 Motherhood is…

At the end of the post Emma asks what Motherhood is to you. So here is my response.

Motherhood is …

Always worrying you aren’t quite getting it right.

Desperately wanting 5 minutes peace, only to miss you when you are asleep

Getting out of a warm cosy bed because I’ve just remembered your school uniform is washed, but still in the washing machine

Giving up dairy, to see if it helps your unsettled tummy whilst breastfeeding

Worrying about your Past, Present and Future more than my own

Plastering on a fake smile and pretending we too love Paw Patrol, Peppa Pig, Thomas and Friends or the chickens ‘Twirly woos’ because you love it and we love you.

Is feeling a pride you never knew existed when you do something, really pretty unspectacular, but to us it is extraordinary, just like you

Is dealing with someone elses poop, sick, dribble and pee way more than you bargained for and being OK with it

Motherhood is… hard, it’s tiring… Well exhausting, all consuming. It’s the simplest, most difficult thing I’ve ever done. It’s happiness, laughter and unconditional love… 

It’s everything to me. 

What’s your Motherhood? 

Thanks for reading
