I don't know about you but for me one of the hardest parts of Motherhood has been the juggling. Juggling who I am (mum, Gemma, Mr Keepsake's partner, friend, teacher, business owner, crafter, expert, absolute novice etc etc), juggling my time, my focus, what is expected of me and my love.
However, sometimes something comes along and stops this juggling act in its tracks. My three Keepsakes needed me last week and there was no time for anything else. It wasn't pretty, glamorous, rose tinted or even thanked (at one point I had vomit in my hair and I was glad that it was mine and not one of the children's again as I could probably put off washing mine!). I was most definitely just 'being mum' and now it is over I am glad I was!
What moments have you had recently that made you stop and realise you are 'being mum'? Rather than letting all the moments of self doubt that can creep in, my advice is to take some time and realise 'Yes I can and I am doing this?'. I'd love to hear from you xx
