Laughter is the best solution

 

Being a mum is hard. Really hard. But it’s also super rewarding and better than anything I could ever imagine. Sometimes there are tears (and not just from the kids!). More often there are moments of joy. And some days I am so proud of what I accomplished that I want to shout about my success from the rooftops. I think that to be a good mum, you need to be real with yourself. Nobody is perfect. You WILL have cringe-worthy moments, but you will also have moments of pure bliss. Recognize the good moments when they happen and find a way to laugh about the bad ones. Maybe it’ll take an hour / a day / a week to see the funny side of what was, at the time, apocalyptic, but know that even the messiest moments have a silver lining. That’s what I hope to do with my blog. Write about my adventures in parenting; share the good moments, but also the not-so-good; help myself to grow as a mum by writing about these moments; and learn not only from my own experiences, but from yours too (if you’re comfortable and willing to share). Maybe you’ll laugh at me, maybe you’ll laugh with me, and maybe, just maybe, you’ll learn to laugh at yourself too. Either way, if there’s laughing involved, I’ll consider it a win. 🙂  Welcome to my blog.
