Last year, I blogged about My Mum Story, something, I am super passionate about! In essence, Mum’s need to get in more photos, it’s as simple as that! This year, I’ve committed to taking 18 photos of myself in 2018 – so far so good! Consequently, I’ve decided to expand My Mum Story to other Mums, so here is the start of a new initiative that is purely an extension of My Mum Story.
We all know that being a Mum is hard. Conversely, it’s the best job in the world. My Mum Story attempts to celebrate this. For me, I know I couldn’t do what I do without the help of other Mum’s. Whether it’s a Whatsapp rant, a Facebook bursting of pride post, a quick natter on the phone, or googling for help from other Mum’s, it happens. Whilst sipping a midweek hot coffee with no kids around me (which now happens for six hours a week!) I thought it would be lovely to share other Mum stories on my blog.
My Mum Story #1. Meet Debbie Wright!
Debbie is a 30 something year old working mum of 2 energetic little boys. She enjoys reading, eating out, exercising, holidays, family time and spending time with friends. She is a girly girl at heart, although being surrounded by all things blue means she doesn’t get to express this part of herself as often as she’d like so when she get’s the chance she likes to pamper myself with a cheeky face mask, nail painting session or trip to the local salon. Debbie always feels that it recharges her batteries and makes her feel better about herself and that she is ready to take on the world!
I am Mum to….
Raphael 3.5 years and Xavier 17 months.
The best bits about being a Mum are….
Cuddles, giggles and watching your small people live, learn and grow!
The most challenging bits about being a Mum are….
Tantrums, sleep deprivation and mummy guilt! The best way to get over it is caffeine, chocolate, wine, patience and a sound proof pantry to sit in and rock! Haha!
The best piece of advice I could give other mums is….
Accept help, ask for help and recognise when you need help. Having the support of my family has been incredible and I don’t know what I would do most days without them.
Since I’ve become a Mum I….
Have learned that no matter what difficulties you are facing you are not alone. We’re all fighting one great big parenting battle to raise well rounded little humans and we are all doing the best we can. So take a deep breath and remember that tomorrow is a new day!
My best mum photo is this one because….
It is of me and my mum and then my boys with their Mum (me!) It also has memories of a special day out.
