Well, at times, shockingly hard.
After years of struggling with infertility here I am a mum of three children recognizing, that once again, we have to recognize how looking after ourselves should be one of our priorities. Sometimes I’m so tired I feel like a machine. Without a doubt a spare body that I could charge over night and then use in the morning, would come handy. At least, I could do what I preach right?
The other night I found myself standing with a baby in my arms, but could not remember how I got there. It’s given me a hint. I have to do something to stay sane.
Today I counted that I have to feed my babies around 16 times in 24 hours. No wonder I’m exhausted and my older son that’s just two gets frustrated.
I try very hard to make him part of everything and every spare second I spend with him.
For the first time in my life I say yes to any help.
Cleaning my house is now replaced by a quick vacuum once or twice a week and hair straightening and eyebrow plucking is now down to a very speedy morning shower.
What else can I say?
Life is great. I’m so in love with my gorgeous children that I could not possibly want to change this for anything else in the world. I’m not perfect and have had many ups and downs, but I will not give up and will remain positive and happy.
I love being a mum!
