This day 6 years ago I was lying petrified in a hospital bed knowing that I was going to become a mother the next day .
I was petrified for a long time and found the whole transition to motherhood a scary ,soul searching ,guilty laden journey .
Looking back I was very depressed but I felt I was just a useless mother .
It’s only on recent year when I let go of the need to be right , of the need to know what I’m doing that I Veblen able to enjoy my children more ..
They have been my teachers.
I adore them to bits and love the journey we are now on !
I saw this and thought it was so true .
“No mother is ever, completely, a child’s idea of what a mother should be, and I suppose it works the other way around as well. But despite everything, we didn’t do too badly by one another, we did as well as most.”
― Margaret Atwood, The Handmaid’s Tale
I only started to enjoy being a mammy when I realised I could only do my best ,and that was going to have to be good enough !
