12 Moments Only Mums Can Relate To

05/04/2019

Motherhood is something that no non-mother could ever fully understand. The excitement, the constant fear, the rewarding, the draining, the companionship, the loneliness, the new, the mundane – it’s a non-stop paradox and the strangest, most wonderful journey you could ever embark on.

When you’re a mother, everything changes. Who knew you’d be comfortable sharing so many stories about poop?

Motherhood is a whirlwind – a rollercoaster of emotions. It’s full of sweet, tender moments but tough, sleepless nights. Your eyes well with joy one moment, but stress and exhaustion the next. You’ll marvel at your little bundle and wonder how you made something so special only to question every little thing you do.

You’re a mother, so get used to never really knowing yourself again. Life today is about…

 

1. Being a thousand things in one

2. Doing things you never thought you would do
