Sometimes i feel bad….

That i shouted at you without trying to think about things from your perspective.

That i was looking at my phone again instead of playing with you properly.

That i got mad when you spilt your drink.

That when you wouldn’t stop crying i got really angry at you.

That i get stressed when you don’t want to nap.

That i lose my patience when you are taking too long to get your shoes on.

That you had to repeat yourself because i just wasn’t listening.

That i grabbed your arm when you wouldn’t come with me

That every so often i want to just run away and escape.

That sometimes i just find you down right annoying!

You see i don’t want you to be scared of me – i don’t want to be a mad, shoutey mummy.

I don’t want you to feel bad if you don’t get always get things right – i don’t always get things right either.

I just need to take a step back and look at your faces and realise that i am so, so lucky to have you both in my life. Everything i gave up for you i would give up a million times over.

I just want you to know that you are loved unconditionally – always. I want you to know that and never ever doubt it x

    I have days like this too. It makes me feel like a complete and utter cow. With two young ones comes exhaustion and no time to even think. It’s hard. It’s the noise that I find the hardest. I can’t cope with the continuous noise. Evening baths are the best.

    I have days like this, we all do. There is no super parent award, we can only do our best. Parenting is by far the hardest thing I have ever done. Of course it is the most rewarding but it is hard. I have days where we sit on the sofa and i play with my phone while they watch TV for far too long. And I feel bad but sometimes we all just need a break. Or I shout at Mads when she is only being little. I straight away feel guilty. But then I have days where it all just fits and goes well- its swings and roundabouts. x

    It’s always loveliness and hard work and frustration and amazing all at once isn’t it? It’s no wonder we’re tired, if only just from all the emotions. Lovely photo x

    Aww I feel like this often. I hate that guilty feeling but even if we were perfect and never got annoyed there would still be something else we’d feel guilty about where the kids are concerned. A very sweet, honest post xx
