Confessions and me.

My girl turned 6 today.
I'm selfishly very sad about this.
I have a 6 year old child, how the frigging hell did this even happen?
This should prove that I am a confident grown-up,
with actual responsibilities and authority.
When in fact I'm a fraud.
My confession, I'm winging it!
I'm just trying to make it through each day,
on no sleep, with a crazy live-wire toddler and a grown up daughter.

I'm out of my depth.

The truth is, It's not all smiles, lollipops and sleepy cuddles.
Its not at all glamorous and it doesn't come easy.
I  would really like a full nights sleep, a long shower in peace
and to eat a meal in silence.

Sometimes I may shout more then I should,
lose my patience or count the hours till bed time.

The whining, the bickering and the 'I want' get to much.
The answering back, the 'No's' and the 'I hate you' ware thin.

I shouldn't give into their demands or tantrums as much. 
A quiet life isn't always the best option 

I should read more, be silly and give longer cuddles.
Visit the park and paint when they ask.
Build dens and have more picnic's.

I'm not perfect and sometimes I get things wrong. 
But I'm doing my very best and that's all that any mother can do.

 I can't love my children anymore than I already do, or be any prouder. 
I cant promise to embrace the nappies, tantrums or the sleep deprivation
but I promise to love my babies un-conditionally
through the good, the bad and the ugly.

Mama and More


  1. I think we all feel like this sometimes. People who say they don't at fibbers! I have definitely been guilty of thinking 'only 4 hours until bedtime'! My older girl is five now and I'm really sad at not being the mother of a baby anymore- I'm horribly broody but I think it might be in a sort if desperately trying to reclaim my youth way!!

    1. Thank you for reading, glad I'm not the only one to count the hours till bedtime! Yes I to get broody, I think it's only natural x

  2. What a lovely post! It all gets to us sometimes doesn't it, I'm sure in your children's eyes you are the most fabulous mummy in the world, no matter how often you shout! Happy birthday to your daughter :) xxx
