You are not failing as a mum because you yelled at your kids.
Or want time away from them.
Or let them watch TV for 4 hours.
Or didn’t feel like playing with them.
Or gave them chips to eat for dinner.
Or……the list goes on.
Mama, give yourself a break.
You are doing your best.
Fucking up sometimes doesn’t mean you’re not cut out to be a mum.
It doesn’t mean you are fucking your children up.
Your baby doesn’t care if the house is messy
If you haven’t showered in 2 days.
We all want the best for our children.
They just want us.
Ditch the high expectations you are putting on yourself
Ditch the guilt.
Ditch the negative self-talk.
Release the pressure to do and be it all.
You can do ANYTHING.
You can’t do EVERYTHING.
Mama, doing your best is always enough.
I see you
You got this ❤
