Ask any Mumma who has given birth how they view their midwife and you are sure to get a range of emotive responses. It is, after all, a highly emotive time in anyone’s life! I for one felt nothing but supported, loved and cared for by our wonderful midwife! And I am saddened that she no longer works in this role and when it is time for us to grow our family again, I will
Just when everything is going well, and you think life is great, something happens to confront you and put an end to that happiness. We never anticipate it, we get so busy with our day to day lives that it all just goes by so quickly. You seem like you’re coping but deep down you know there’s something bubbling. A thought/feeling that’s been stewing for so long, but you just wish it would go away.
STOP! Wait a minute! Before you send that text/instant message that you’re about to send. Read this first! If you’re anything like me, you’ve gotten used to flicking a quick message to someone when something comes to your mind. This doesn’t seem like an issue or like it should be a problem however, have you ever stopped to consider the impact to the recipient on the other end? Furthermore, we send those messages while in
Ladies, do you remember before you were a Mumma? Before you had a little human needing your attention 24 hours each and every day? Remember what it was like to just be you and your man? Sometimes I find that I forget, I get so into the grind of life with our little human that I forget that I am not just a Mumma, I am so much more! Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely
The truth!? You can’t handle the truth! The problem with the truth itself, but that we find it hard to tell others the truth for fear of how they may react. Being so afraid of the other person’s reaction, we end up avoiding the conversation or sometimes even lying. It’s easier than facing an uncomfortable situation or upsetting someone we care about. In not telling the truth though, the long-term impact can be far worse.
You got this Mumma, you got this Mumma… I repeat this over and over in my head as we’re sitting in the waiting room at Starship Children’s Hospital waiting to see the cardiologist to attach a Holter Monitor to our precious 2 year old….. You got this Mumma! You can keep it together, you can stay strong, you can fake confidence, you can smile, you can hide the worry in your eyes, you can
I am absolutely tired of feeling like I’m not good enough. Rather than delving into my history to explore the root of why I feel that way, I would rather share my recent learning with you all and my plans for how I am choosing to confront this and move forward from now on. You see, I’ve been this way ever since I can remember. No compliment given ever felt deserved. No accomplishment ever felt
Your toddler isn’t GIVING you a hard time, your toddler is HAVING a hard time… As a parent, you will be familiar with the monikers “terrible two’s” or “threenager” or “toddler temper tantrum”… they are all very familiar words! This week I was hit with a timely reminder as I struggled with a “terrible two toddler temper tantrum” one night on my own while Hubby was at work that (majority of the time) your
Last week, I wrote about finding my purpose. Just to let you know, my purpose in life is to “inspire others to be more empowered to live full and happy lives”. This purpose is the reasoning behind my decisions I make in life. You’ll also see it written under ‘about me’ on the sidebar on the right. It’s my goal to achieve this in some way every day. However, every day is different and my
You know when you hear a song sometimes, and the lyrics just make you think? Or you swear the lyrics could be about you and your life? As I was driving home one day from work this week a song came on that really made me start thinking about how I want to adapt this kind of thinking to my life as a Mumma. Cheesy I know! Maybe it was that
