Mama, I know it's hard

Counsellor & Life Coach Newcastle Australia

Mama, I know it's hard.⁠

Today, there were a lot of tears. From both my kids and me. There was teething, tantrums, injuries, poo in the bath and mess everywhere I looked.⁠

I yelled. I slammed doors. I asked my 8-month old baby why he hated me. I cried, a lot. I told my 3-year old that he wasn't allowed to speak. I have eaten half a meal. I've barely had any water and I sit here, writing this, in the defeat of the day.⁠

The kids are down for the night (until somebody wakes up needing something later) and I'm reminding myself that I am not alone. ⁠

I am not the only mum who has yelled, cried, slammed things or forgotten to eat and drink water. I am not the only mum who has sat in a room, alone, in defeat. I'm not the first and I won't be the last. ⁠

I may have lost my cool (and possibly sanity), but I'm not mad at myself or my kids. Tomorrow, I will try again and it will be a better day 💛

With love
