From the start of my pregnancy, Sam and I had conversations about how we wanted to raise our child. One thing we were adamant about was that we didn’t want our home to be overflowing with toys.
As months of parenthood passed us by, we found ourselves losing sight of this. Henry was losing interest in the toys he has, and we were also getting bored of playing with the same things all the time.
A couple of weeks ago, I ended up going to trusty Kmart with the intention of shopping up a storm.
Prior to motherhood, I didn’t understand why so many mums were constantly posting things on social media about their kids and their day to day lives. I thought to myself surely they know that other people couldn’t care less?
My social media was flooded with photos of babies sleeping, of kids at the park, of mums venting, of mums praising their kids… the list goes on.
I was determined to not be one of those mums.

I know I’m not alone when I question whether I’m doing enough for my child and with my child.
I’ve been asking myself (and Sam!) these questions a lot this week.
The list of things I’ve had mum-guilt over seems endless. Plus, Henry and I have both been sick and cooped up inside because of the rain, which never helps.
So many negative thoughts have stemmed from this week alone:
The last few weeks have been busy in the lead up to the launch of my new business, Tea for She. Running my own business is something that I’ve wanted to do for a while, but it took me a long time to figure out what I actually wanted that business to be.
I'm married to Sam and I'm a mother to Henry.
