After reading some negative comments towards some mummies, I thought it might be nice to get some positive vibes going. I think, as mums, we can often be our own worst enemy. Like judging each other for how we parent, what we feed our kids, work versus SAHM, and recently I learnt that some even get judged for the pram they use. How about seeing the good in mum's? God knows, all we really want is for our children to be happy, secure and loved.
Today, I took my 5 month old to the shops and it was raining. I couldn't get a park close to the door so had to make a run for it, with bub in my arms, in the rain. I felt like a horrible mother getting him all wet. I threw the only thing I had (a used spew rag!) over his head and made a run for it. The whole way I was thinking "I'm a bad mum, he is going to get sick, what will people think?". I finally made it inside, and took one look at my little boy, and he was laughing, a great big belly laugh. My heart melted! He was happy and safe and gorgeous. I am doing the best I can and I am so lucky.
Anyone got any positive stories about yourself as a mum, or another mum you know or have seen?
