Confession: I was not mom-like when I had my son

Confession: I didn’t feel like a mom when my son was born and I told no one for fear of judgement and lack of support

When I first encountered my son I didn't feel an immediate connection and I told no one. Every article that I'd ever read pointed to a motherliness that would exude from the star mom when her child was born. I didn't feel motherly at all. In fact I still felt my single self. Married, but before a child. #parenting #momlife #momsquad #dadlife #dadsquad

My first day off from motherhood

I had my first day off from motherhood. I'm hooked and my husband, elated

Like most moms, I thought I was indispensible. My son has to have me by his side and everyone else is wrong about everything. Fast forward to 18 months later I'm knackered and most times all I want to do is some me-time. I also snapped out of postpartum depression and figured out I had a hand to play in the thin relationship my husband had with my son. #parenting #marriedlife #momlife #momsquad #dadlife #dadsquad

Trump invaded our nursery & mom is sorry

All my son wanted to do was to play and my premature tidying up was hurting him

All of us have moments in our lives that test our courage. Taking children into a house with a white carpet is one of them - Erma Bombeck I fight a minor OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder). Nobody complains about it when I'm trying to keep the house tidy or when I'm packing three pieces of luggage before we go on a trip - I'm the only reliable one who gets every necessity and extras in - but when it comes to my son's time for play, I realized I have to take my OCD somewhere else. #parenting #momlife #momsquad #dadlife #dadsquad
