Supermum

Tuesday – Wake up, shower, two baths, everyone dressed, toddler had breakfast, baby had a bottle, bed is made, kitchen is clean, toilets are sparkling, floor is swept, laundry is done, time for lunch, time for naps … well that was short … make dinner, eat dinner, do the dishes, family time, tuck in the kids, re-clean the house, time for bed, baby wont sleep. How am I going to do this after maternity leave ends?


Wednesday 1AM – Mental meltdown…


Wednesday afternoon I learned something about myself, that I am not Supermom but I am still a super mom. My advice on tackling your to do list? It’s okay if there is a dust bunny in the corner once in a while. It’s quite alright if the load of laundry winds up a little wrinkled from hanging out in the dryer for an extra day. No one is judging if your house plants look a little thirsty, well in my case they might be. Stressing all of the things that need to be done will only ruin your day and maybe even your night. Remember to take time in the day to relax and play with your kids. It isn’t the perfect house that took 10 hours to maintain that makes you a super mom, it’s realizing that the dishes can wait until the third bedtime story is done or maybe even until tomorrow.
