I suppose I have always felt out of my depth as a mum but now more so. I just can't get anything right, I'm surrounded by mums who parent so effortlessly and I'm drowning.
I struggle to keep the house in order, stay on top of the laundry, can't cook to save myself and I'm so useless that I struggled to make anything including the cake for my Dd's birthday party last month. The one I bought and spent a bl$&dy fortune on was disgusting! :-( if it wasn't for dh the kids would have had nothing.
I rely on dh when we have guests over. He had work colleagues over and they know I don't work so I feel that I should be doing the catering.
