Hey Mummy, it’s okay…
… If you buy your child’s costumes, instead of making them yourself. How can anyone keep up with Pirate/Stone age/Roald Dahl/ World Book/Wedding/Mermaid Day anyway?
… If you secretly eat second-hand fish fingers in the kitchen. Everybody hates waste.
… If by Friday your hair is 85% dry shampoo: I’d be inclined to judge you more if it wasn’t.
… If you take your children to a coffee shop with a kids’ area for the sole purpose of enjoying your cuppa while it’s still hot.
… If you’re so desperate for a night out that you spend several hours getting ready, only to leave after an hour because you can’t relax and keep looking at your phone, expecting a call to say the baby is screaming down the house.
… If you look forward to children’s birthday parties (perhaps even more than your child) because they’re just as much of a social event for you as they are for them.
… If you feed your child the same meal all the time because it’s their favourite and they throw everything else on the floor. Sometimes you just need an easy day!
… If you eat biscuits for breakfast because your baby was up all night, then again for lunch because he/she won’t nap and they’re too clingy to allow you to assemble a sandwich. Some days only a sugar rush can get you through.
… If your child wants to go out for lunch, but actually only wants a massive hot chocolate and a cake. We’ve all be conned.
Hey Mummy, it’s okay: we’ve all been there!
