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 was at the park with Henry this week and a grandmother was there with her granddaughter, who was about 4 years old.
I overheard the grandmother say “what does Nanna do with you? I bet she doesn’t bring you to the park. I bet she just puts on a DVD for you. She does, doesn’t she?” The granddaughter said that sometimes she goes to the park with her Nanna. She then went off to continue playing. Good diversion, kid!

The advice I received most during pregnancy and the first few months of motherhood was to “sleep when the baby sleeps.” I rarely slept when Henry did. Most mums I know didn’t sleep then either. There’s washing, cleaning and cooking that needs to be done. We feel like we need to do it all because we’re the ones that are home all day.
