When being a mummy gets a bit too much...

As a mother, you encounter more than your fair share of laugh or cry moments. I have found that in order to steer clear of becoming a sobbing mess on the kitchen floor, it helps to make a joke out of it and share it with the world (the main reason why I am so in love with the Unmummsy mum's Twitter feed!) 
Ok so maybe not the whole world but at least a close mummy friend who can sympathise and laugh along. 

These experiences are usually shared via text message at ridiculous hours of night, dictating the appalling amount of chocolate/wine you have consumed and are filled with an obscene amount of profanities!) 

There was the time I'd slept so little the previous night that I couldn't quite bring myself to get off the floor, but was greeted by a reply that made me laugh so much I managed to perk up and find the strength to get through the night shift!


The day that everything decided to go tits up all at once and my lovely friend got bombarded with messages while I tried not to have a mental breakdown...


The day our incredible business plan began to take form (we are still working on it and I will inform you when we take the idea to Dragons Den)



And then the day where I seriously considered giving my cat away at 5 o'clock in the morning...


It may just be my experience, but I have found that even at 6 months the hard days by far outweigh the easy ones. However having someone to laugh and joke about it with is what gets you through it all and out the other side (the other side being 7:30pm where there is wine and chocolate and a big squishy sofa you can curl up on) 

Stay strong fellow mummies. And if you ever need someone to have a mini-mental breakdown at, I am always at the other end of my emails :-)

  9. I totally need to add you to WhatsApp or something. I have hardly any mummy friends so I don't have anyone to send these kind of messages to! I usually just end up whinging to the husband whilst he's at work.

  20. Great post and so funny! My cats also do this, little buggers (I want to say something worse, I really do!)
    The teething does get better, I promise, they just learn to deal with it better. I used to be afraid of giving Lily calpol etc. but now when they're getting to her I get it straight out. Better for her not to be in pain and better for me as she cheers up! XX

  22. I agree the hard days do seem to outweigh the good days in terms of numbers, but somehow just one little good day seems to be able to keep us going through a lot of hard days - guess that is the way we are programmed! #FartGlitter

  23. I couldn't agree more! Mummy programming system! X

  24. Brilliant! My cat has done exactly the same. We're sleeping peacefully and it's after 6am - baby is having a lie in! Then the cat decides he wants feeding NOW. And I need mummy daycare, keep working on it and bring it to me please! :-) x

      And running! X

  25. I completely agree. The laundry text was hilarious :-). Sometimes I just need to rant and I have a friend who receives my nutso messages and talks me down from the ledge sometimes. I'm also over at my blog trying to keep my sanity if you need it :-)
    Thanks for linking up to #fartglitter x
