Know When You’re Having Trouble Coping As A Mum

*Collaborative Post

The view that society has on motherhood as a whole is still quite a dim one.

Dear son,

This week was a biggie. We found out your school place and even though the build-up has been coming for months, I wasn’t expecting to feel this way.

the toughest gameshow on earth is being a Mum of toddler

The Toughest Game Show On Earth!

Daily life with a toddler has it’s up and downs and constant battles. It’s so different from a newborn, where you are tired from lack of sleep. Being a Mum of a toddler, you are more drained from their talking and answering questions, and physically exhausted from running after them. It made me start to think that it could actually be the plot for the hardest game show on earth!
