Things I've learnt to be ok with now I'm a mum

Some days your gunna sleep all day and sometimes you'll feel like you're wasting the days away. But you'll come to realise there's nothing more important then sleep, like nothing!! And it's never a wasted activity. 

Most days you won't get around to mopping the kitchen floor. But it's not that bigger deal as you will get round to it, one day, perhaps when the kids have grown up and left home!? Give yourself a break. 

You will often start the day with good intentions (like dieting) but these will often be forgotten about by lunch time. But there's always tomorrow or the next day. 

Sleep is the most important thing in the whole-wide-world and you will choose it over everything. Including Eastenders, eating and showering. 

Ironing is something you done once upon a time way back when, before the second baby, when you slept and did house work, religiously. Clothes that actually do need ironing were obviously invented by a man. 

5am will never be anyones fav time of the day, ever! No one 'chooses' to get up at that god awful time. It is the torture hour. A time before even Granny Murray!  

Kids tv is the best invention in the whole wide world!!!! The amount a mum can get done during a one 5min episodes of Bing is record breaking. And Mr Tumble will be your best friend. 

As a mum it's the small things you'll learn to appreciate most, like peeing in peace, a sneaky mars bar or a 2 min flick through Facebook, in silence. Bliss. Who needs champagne and pandora?! 

The longer you spend preparing a nutritious meal for your little darlings the harder it is to accept when it's thrown on the floor or spat out! Hence why smilies and fish fingers were invented. 

You learn to lower your ambitions and aim's, no longer will you want to look like something out of TOWIE, instead you want to look human-like and not twice your age. 

Your goals are to get through the day and survive. No longer are you concerned about the latest fashion trends or who's going with. 

Friday nights are all about the pizza, gogglebox and a bottle of cheap strawberry cider before collapsing in bed by 10pm. Gone are the clubbing days and the dirty kebabs at 2am!! No thank-you..! 

But mostly you'll realize life isn't all about you anymore. Your needs and goals will change and the things that make you happy are priceless and invaluable. And not from Top Shop or in a little white box. 

You'll also realize that you'll never be, a size 8 again or that care-free spontaneous person you were at 20 and you'll probably never have any real actual amounts of money, ever. But that's ok. We, as parents accept it all. Even though we go into it without actually signing anything or agreeing to any actual terms. Parenting the unspoken contracts.
