Mum’s are amazing, aren’t they? Running around all hours of the day to get work done, children where they need to be, the house in order and at some point, they even manage to brush their own teeth and put clothes on. It’s amazing. The thing is, many, many mums out there put themselves to the last of the pile at all times. Of course, you’re nodding at this agreeing because we all know that the kids come first above everything else. Except that sometimes, they don’t. Sometimes, you have to put yourself in the shower first in the day – even if that means waking up at some ungodly hour. Sometimes, you have to take five minutes to just breathe and remind yourself that these busy, long days will not last forever – even if sometimes they feel like they will.
