It takes a village.
Today I am thankful for my village. My wonderful sister has taken my baby away so I can have a break.
He is really giving his new teeth a workout and has left me so damaged and sore that I can’t feed.
Being a mum can be pretty shit at times. There are no lunch breaks, or a cleaner that cleans up once you leave work for the day. It’s lonely and sometimes really really hard.
Are they 100% worth every tear and bit of pain you experience? Absolutely and I wouldn’t trade it for the world but that doesn’t mean that sometimes it isn’t tough.
It’s okay to need a break sometimes and it’s okay to cry when you need to.
So here I sit in tears, expressing milk for my child and feeling incredibly guilty for not being with him, but I know I can’t be a good mum without also looking after myself.
Sometimes I don’t know where I would be without my village- my husband, my family and my friends. Thank you all.
Don’t forget if your doing it tough, reach out and take time to rest, repair and recover in mind, body and spirit 💕
My hat goes off to all the mummas past, present and future. We are doing an incredible thing and that should not be undervalued.
